So, there's a new Tenacious D album.  It's called Post-Apocolypto.  It drops November 2nd.  Dave Grohl plays drums on it, as he has for them over and over.  Leading up there's gonna be a cartoon, hand animated by frontman Jack Black himself.  The animated series kicks off Sept 28 and will drop a new episode each Friday until release day. The band play NYC just after release date on 11/3 and 11/4 @ Kings Theatre.

AS DESCRIBED IN A PRESS RELEASE the band released the following statement on the albums themes - 

“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.”
