After years of advocating the party lifestyle via songs, motivational speeches, and sexy product endorsements, Andrew W.K. has finally landed a book deal. The singer will publish The Party Bible through Simon & Schuster sometime in the near future, and will be accompanied by an audio book to soundtrack workouts and long car rides. W.K. says the book is an ode to all his “party friends” and is the culmination of his “entire career as a professional partier.” A video celebrating the book’s existence is below, and is premiering exclusively on The A.V. Club.
Michael Szczerban, W.K.’s editor, says the book will be “an unforgettable voyage in search of truth, wisdom, and party bliss,” and that, “in it, every feeling will be permitted, every thought will become prophecy, and humanity’s surging life force will be harnessed and ridden into the abyss.” So, party on, dudes.
W.K. is currently out on the road on his solo Party Messiah tour. He’s also going out with Marky Ramone, and dates for both those runs are below.
