Tenacious D Announces First Tour In 5 Years, “Probably” Upcoming New Album

first_imgThe trailer video also contains a brief clip of music, in which Black sings “…Apocalypto, this is our time to shine.” That little snippet is in line with the “hypothetical” info Black recently divulged about their upcoming album. In an interview with Kerrang!, Black referenced the plans for a new Tenacious D project, saying, “We’ve been working on it for years. It’s a post-apocalyptic musical comedy that’s an animated series that no one wanted in Hollywood but we’re making it anyway. And it’s very cheap, and it looks cheap, but that’s what makes it funnier.”He goes on to liken the animation style (drawn by Jack himself) to those of Beavis & Butthead, “So that’s the plan, we’re making this album called Post-Apocalypto, and it’s all a story, like a rock opera like Tommy or The Wall….just like those.” Watch the Tenacious D tour trailer video below:Tenacious D 2018 Tour Trailer Video[Video: Tenacious D]You can see a full list of Tenacious D’s upcoming tour dates below.
