The ‘lost’ third album, Close Calls With Brick Walls, from party rocker Andrew W.K. is set for release on March 9th. Previously released in Japan and Korea in 2006, the album is being released by Steev Mike, as a special two album package (the original Close Calls With Brick Walls on one disc, and an additional CD called Mother of Mankind, containing rare and unreleased material).
Close Calls With Brick Walls was recorded in multiple sessions throughout 2004 and 2005, using the full Andrew W.K. touring band for the first time. With a full instrumental band, the new album includes exciting new performances, styles, and rhythms. The lyrics are more complex although still very playful, and Andrew’s voice has grown into something much more distinct and expressive.
