Tenacious D rope in Dave Grohl on drums in new album and animated series, 'Post-Apocalypto'
The 21 track album drops Nov. 2, features Dave Grohl on drums and comes with a six-part animated series, to be released via Tenacious D's YouTube channel.
Tenacious D is all set to unleash their comedic rock shenanigans yet again in November with a new album called 'Post-Apocalypto'. To accompany the album’s release, the duo of Jack Black and Kyle Gass will premiere a new six-episode animated series via their YouTube channel.
The 21-track album is a follow up to 2012's ‘Rize Of The Fenix‘ and is due out on November 2. Produced by John Spiker, it boasts the star power of Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl on drums. You can pre-order the album here.
The animated series will premiere on September 28 on Tenacious D's YouTube channel, with new episodes premiering each Friday up until the album’s release. According to NME, each frame of every episode was hand-drawn by Black himself, with every character voiced by Black and Gass. All six episodes also feature new Tenacious D songs from the band’s forthcoming album. Additionally, as each episode goes up, a song from the episode will be made available via digital music platforms.
An official synopsis for the show reads: “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.”
