Very soon, Andrew W.K. will be able to say that he literally wrote the book on partying. Yes, the "Party Hard" champion has signed a deal with publishing house Simon & Schuster to write The Party Bible, the A.V. Club reports. The upcoming title will be out sometime in the near future and promises to be the culmination of his "entire career as a professional partier."
Thus far, W.K.'s lifetime of partying has led him to a joint tour with Marky Ramone, a gig as the spokesman for Playtex's Fresh & Sexy Intimate Wipes, a drumming world record, a brony convention, some motivational speaking here and there, and one very spicy meal with Action Bronson. Now add respected —until proven otherwise — author to that list.
Michael Szczerban, the book's editor, describes The Party Bible as "an unforgettable voyage in search of truth, wisdom, and party bliss," adding that "in it, every feeling will be permitted, every thought will become prophecy, and humanity’s surging life force will be harnessed and ridden into the abyss." Sounds fun! And, best of all, the book will also be out in audio format, so it can even soundtrack your future bouts of drunken debauchery.
Like any true party expert, W.K. isn't overthinking the project — he simply classifies it as a tribute to his "party friends." Watch W.K. battle the blank page in the above promotional trailer for The Party Bible and tweet suggestions for the handbook to @AndrewWK with the hashtag #ThePartyBible.
