Andrew W.K. Shares Ever Again Video, Confirms North American Tour Dates

Tuesday, 30 January 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Andrew WK has shared a new video and North American tour dates.

Ever Again is the second single from his upcoming album, 'You're Not Alone', which is due out on March 2 via Red Music/Sony Music. Describing the song, Andrew said:

"A fantasy in which I imagine what it would be like to actually know the meaning of life - an ecstatic nightmare in which I've returned from the brink of annihilation, having clawed the ultimate insight from out of its hiding spot, and am finally able to solve the riddle of existence while I cry out in triumphant elation.

"The desire to possess this total internalized clarity - not only knowing what life really means, but actually feeling the truth from the inside out - is a mirage for the mind, but a reality for the heart. But coming from a place of confusion and despair, perhaps simply having faith in the possibility of 'the answer to everything' is enough to see us through those frequent moments of painful disorientation.

"I'm not singing from the perspective of someone who has found this ultimate-answer-to-everything, but as someone who's dreaming about how incredible it would feel if I had.

"And in a mysterious and strangely uplifting way, it seems that a belief in the possibility of an absolute truth gives us access to something quintessential and crucial for our own survival - it connects us with a part of ourselves that's both primal and divine - an empowering, enlightening, and energizing force of unyielding and overwhelming feeling.

"A feeling that transcends emotion. A feeling that overwhelms all thought and language. A feeling that can't be understood, but can only be deeply and joyously experienced. And thus, celebrated in worshipful glee. Partying is born."

In celebration of 'You're Not Alone', Andrew WK will tour North America and the UK this spring, beginning at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas in March, continuing with a UK tour in April. Tickets for the new North American dates go on sale at 10am on January 31.

Live, Energetic, Off The Cuff: How Black Stone Cherry Discovered Their 'Family Tree'
Mon 30 Apr 2018
Photo: Harry Reese Lots of rock ‘n’ roll groups try to embody the mythic notion that they’re some kind of swaggering last gang in town with a special camaraderie. While many start off that way, over time reality usually bites and they end up becoming decidedly unromantic business concerns with a clear pecking order. It’s refreshing to discover that, after 17 successful years, Black Stone Cherry remain the same four friends who grew up together in Kentucky.
Black Stone Cherry - Family Tree (Album Review)
Tue 24 Apr 2018
Photo: Harry Reese Black Stone Cherry’s last two albums were predominantly intense affairs. Made under the dark clouds of depression and record label strife respectively, they boasted a heavy, aggressive approach that didn’t always play to the group’s strengths. The same can’t be said of ‘Family Tree’. Bursting with infectious exuberance and quality craftsmanship, it’s the work of a band who sound like they’re finally having fun again.
Melvins - Pinkus Abortion Technician (Album Review)
Thu 03 May 2018
The dichotomy facing the average Melvins fan is this: hating their new music because it doesn't resemble that of their heyday, while respecting Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover because they keep doing whatever the fuck they want. Their 27th studio album, ‘Pinkus Abortion Technician’, weighs heavily on this divide. It doesn't sound like classic Melvins because it’s a Butthole Surfers parody album with a Beatles cover in the middle. That’s something nobody asked for, and therefore precisely what the band intended.
A Perfect Circle - Eat The Elephant (Album Review)
Wed 09 May 2018
Many critics don't put much stock into dissecting album art, but it's tricky to talk about 'Eat the Elephant', California supergroup A Perfect Circle's first album in 14 years, without at least a passing reference to its sleeve. Fronted by an Uncle Fester-esque character cradling an octopus, the ostentatious cover will trigger a gut response from anyone who grew up listening to angsty alternative rock in the early 2000s.
