Tenacious D Release New Song “Post Apocalypto – Chapter 1: Hope” and Animated Webisode

0

Comedic rock duo Tenacious D are set to release a new album and six-part animated video series, and today we get the first song and video combo, “Post Apocalypto – Chapter 1: Hope.” New releases will follow each Friday until the Post-Apocalypto album release on November 2nd. Each frame of the video series was hand-drawn by Jack Black himself, with voiceovers from both Black and Kyle Gass.

Check out the first episode/song below. I’ve yet to watch it, but you can tell us what you think in the comments. Here’s a description of the series:

“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.”
