The long-rumored new album by Tenacious D finally has a name and release date. Post-Apocalypto is coming on November 2nd, and it will most definitely shake the pillars of Earth, so prepare yourself. It is a 21-track epic, with Dave Grohl playing drums.
And if that wasn’t enough, The D will be releasing a 6-part animated show, drawn completely by Jack Black, on their Youtube channel. It premieres on September 28th, with a new episode coming every Friday until the album’s release.
Here is the official synopsis of the show:
“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.”
