He's a rock god, television host, avant-garde pianist, feminine hygiene product endorser and record holder for longest drum performance. Now the one-man party maelstrom that is Andrew W.K. can add a new line to his C.V.: published author of an exquisite guide to his favorite activity. Which is partying, of course.

Simon & Schuster picked up rights to "The Party Bible," W.K.'s new comprehensive book of motivational maxims and his metaphysics of partying.

According to publisher Michael Szczerban, via the Onion A.V. Club, the book is “an unforgettable voyage in search of truth, wisdom, and party bliss ... every feeling will be permitted, every thought will become prophecy, and humanity’s surging life force will be harnessed and ridden into the abyss."

Well then! Our Friday night is looking up just thinking about it.

"The Party Bible" will also be released as an audiobook, which we can promise will immediately become mandatory background listening in the Pop & Hiss offices. The book is the latest notch in a pretty remarkable career for W.K., whose most recent gigs included a run DJ'ing for the Black Sabbath reunion tour.

His solo "Party Messiah" hits the Fonda on Oct. 15. We're prepping our white jeans and bloody noses already.
