Tenacious D To Release New Album “Post-Apocalypto” Feat. Dave Grohl On Drums

Tenacious D have announced that they will be releasing a new album titled “Post-Apocalypto” on November 2. Once again, the effort sees the band joined by Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) on drums. Furthermore, the group also plan to launch an animated “Post-Apocalypto” Youtube series on September 28. It will include six episodes featuring drawings done by Jack Black himself. Each character will be voiced by Black and Kyle Gass as well. You can find a teaser for that below:

A press release offered more insight into “Post-Apocalypto”:

“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.”
