Tenacious D To Tour Swing States This Fall

Tenacious D will be hitting the road on a fall U.S. tour. The duo have partnered with 46 for 46 for the trek, which will find them performing and encouraging voter registration in swing states.

The band commented:

“[Trump is] the most divisive, corrupt and dangerous President in the modern history of this country, and we simply cannot stand for another four years of his administration! Now is the time to elect a REAL leader!

In 2016, six states were decided by 2 percentage points or less, and ten states were decided by 4 percentage points or less. Swing states played a pivotal role in the outcome of that election, and they will again in 2020. Knowing that, we looked at each other and agreed: just like the tale of Post-Apocalypto, it is time for Tenacious D to RIDE and help save the world from Trumpian destruction. With great rock comes great responsibility.”
