Andrew W.K. - Close Calls With Brick Walls and Mother of Mankind (promo video!)
After three years of loyal patience, Andrew W.K. fans can finally experience his "lost" third album. Previously released in Japan and Korea in 2006, Close Calls With Brick Walls will officially become available in the United States on March 9.
2009's release, 55 CADILLAC, was a compilation of improvised solo piano compositions, while Close Calls With Brick Walls, coupled with a bonus album, Mother of Mankind, will deliver the slamming, inspirational music for which the rocker is loved.
The 2-CD set will house 39 songs, 36 pages of photos and notes, and is packaged in a special double slip-case.
Watch the promo video, directed/produced by a recent Beaston-fave...Tayisha Busay!
