Andrew W.K. Announces ‘I Get Wet’ 10th Anniversary Tour
Andrew W.K. has announced a tour celebrating the 10th anniversary of 'I Get Wet,' his groundbreaking debut album.
The record featured anthemic hits like, 'Party Hard' and 'She Is Beautiful,' and quickly made W.K. one of the most talked about artists of the early '00s. For the tour, his band will perform every song from 'I Get Wet,' in album order, every night of the tour, including appearances at the SXSW Festival in March.
The major-key club-rock sound of 'I Get Wet' was a blast of fresh air, and anticipated the shape of pop music to come a decade ahead of schedule. As The Onion's A.V.club noted, the album "rocks almost recklessly, but without the trappings that burden its peers: There's no camp, no irony, and, most notably, no angst."
In an interesting bit of trivia, 'I Get Wet' also featured Donald Tardy, of death metal titans Obituary, on drums.
