Andrew W.K. joins Marky Ramone's Band

by The 405 News Team, 03 April 2013

Andrew W.K. of 'party hard' fame has announced he'll be joining Marky Ramone's Blitzkrieg on a world tour, assuming the role of the late Ramones frontman.

"I first met Andrew through a mutual friend and he told me about his party philosophy, which has also always been my exact take on life," says Marky. "We went into the rehearsal studio and it just clicked."

"When Marky Ramone asks you to be his singer, you don't even think about it," says W.K. "It's an automatic, YES. I was intimidated by the magnitude of the opportunity – freaked out and overwhelmed – but I was also completely determined and focused – it's something I had to do. Even just the first rehearsal felt like an odyssey, but that's how you can tell the experience is changing your life. I've never had a more rewarding, humbling, or challenging invitation than this, and I'm serving the gods via this incredible sound Marky and his band created. There's never been better rock 'n' roll music made than this, and I will give everything I have to do it justice."

The announcement was made via this Fuse interview:
