Andrew W.K. To Rock Ramones Classics With Marky Ramone's Blitzkrieg

Anyone up for a Ramones Party? Former Ramones drummer Marky Ramone has recruited Andrew W.K. to front Marky Ramone's Blitzkrieg for their upcoming global tour dates.

Marky Ramone's Blitzkrieg carries on the Ramones with the performance of over 30 Ramones classics at each concert. And with Andrew W.K. performing those classics, you know they will come to party.

"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," explains Marky Ramone. "We went into the rehearsal studio and it just clicked. We had so much fun that we wanted to invite everyone to the party. I've said before and I will say it again, these songs are too good not to be played live!!!"

"When Marky Ramone asks you to be his singer, you don't even think about it. It's an automatic, YES," raves Andrew W.K. "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 tour will kick off in New York City on May 3rd and they will then head to Serbia on the 9th and perform dates in Italy, Spain, Russia, Finland, Greece and Germany before heading back to the U.S. for the North American leg this fall.

The American dates include stops in Washington D.C, New York City, Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

They will then head across the pond for dates in London, Manchester and Glasgow.
