Published Mar 31, 2016A vocal supporter of the power of positive partying, Andrew W.K. is set to bring his unwavering pro-party stance to the arena of governmental politics with the formation of — you guessed it — a political party.
Through forming the aptly named Party Party, the rocker aims "to remove the disillusioning aspects of politics and just have the party," citing frustration and division in the United States caused by the nation's two-party system.
"This polarizing form of government has contributed to an adversarial mentality among voters and politicians," he said in a statement. "The binary 'Us versus Them,' 'Red versus Blue,' 'Right versus Left' mindset has been a perpetual distraction and distorted our shared quest to make tangible improvements to our country and ourselves. Constantly battling and blaming each other has hindered our ability to collectively and individually contribute towards the true destiny of the United States of America: the complete and total liberation of the human spirit."
He continued: "Buried deep inside this mountain of overwhelming national anxieties, complex international dilemmas, and endlessly competing principals, there is a fundamental truth — that we are all in this together. Many of us fail to realize that at our very core, we ultimately do share many of the same essential values. These values are what make us Americans and also make us human beings. And if we can celebrate these shared qualities first, and look to find the best in ourselves and each other, perhaps we'll find the path ahead to be slightly less treacherous. The world isn't being destroyed by 'Red or Blue,' 'Left or Right,' 'Us or Them' — it's being destroyed by one side believing the other side is destroying the world. Perhaps right now we just need a little less politics and a lot more party."
While the necessary paperwork to officially qualify the newly formed party is still being filed with the U.S. Secretary of State, watch the video below and visit the Party Party's website here to learn more about Andrew W.K.'s political vision.
