Andrew WK says he’d consider expanding his political Party Party and open a branch in the UK.

The rocker believes his experience “as a partier, an entertainer and a human being” qualifies him to lead a political party that aims to be inclusive and progressive.

He’s hoping to get enough support to qualify the Party Party as an official political party in the US and make a run for President.

And once this year’s US Presidential election is out of the way, he could launch the Party Party in Britain.

Andrew WK tells Metal Hammer: “At the moment, the Party Party is in the US, but who’s to say we can’t start a UK branch?

“It’s a team effort. I want us to all be our own politicians more than anything else.

“It doesn’t mean we can’t support those that are in office, but I would like to take the power away from these distant removed people that we put so much weight on, that often want to be given that much power, and take it back to ourselves.”
