Tenacious D Announce New Album and Animated Series Post-Apocalypto
Comedic rock duo Tenacious D will return with a new album this fall, their first since Rize of the Fenix, released in 2012. What’s more, they’ll also be releasing a six-part animated video series via YouTube at the same time. Each frame of the series was hand-drawn by Jack Black himself, with voiceovers from both Black and Kyle Gass.
Both will be called Post-Apocalypto. The series will launch on Tenacious D’s YouTube channel on September 28th with one new episode airing every Friday. New Tenacious D music will be featured in each episode, all culminating in an album release on November 2nd. New songs will also be available on Spotify, etc. as they’re released each week.
Here’s what the series has in store:
“True to the title, Post-Apocalypto finds Tenacious D thrust into a world of complete and utter destruction following the drop of an atomic bomb. Surviving the attack in classic cinematic fashion (a good old imperishable 1950’s refrigerator), the duo quickly learns that new forms of evil have spawned from the blast. One thing becomes apparent — for humanity to prevail, Tenacious D must save the world.
“With unimaginable twists and turns, an insane visit to the White House, a time machine, a space adventure, and the help of some tried and true daddy issues, Post-Apocalypto is as hilarious as it is political, and as brilliant and multi-faceted as its incredible creators. The songs are damn good, too.”
