Andrew WK to reissue ‘I Get Wet’ to celebrate album’s 10th anniversary

Singer will re-release his debut record with lots of added extras in July

Andrew WK has announced that he will be reissuing his classic debut album ‘I Get Wet’ in July.

The reissue will come out on July 17 on both CD and double gate-fold vinyl LP. The new releases will both feature a second disc that includes new live recordings, early demos, alternate mixes and other previously unreleased material.

A limited number of autographed deluxe editions will also be made available, with WK promising that each will contain a “very special something” from his own private collection.

Andrew WK will tour the UK next month, performing ‘I Get Wet’ in its entirety. He will play three shows, firstly at London’s HMV Forum on April 12, then Manchester Academy on April 13 and finally Glasgow Garage on April 14.

As well as celebrating ‘I Get Wet’, the singer is currently working on a new album, which will be the follow-up to his 2009 instrumental solo piano album ’55 Cadillac’.

He will also appear at this summer’s Sonisphere festival alongside Kiss, Queen with Adam Lambert, Faith No More, Glassjaw, Marilyn Manson, Refused, Evanescence and a whole host of others.
