Tenacious D Announces Album, Animated Series

Jack Black and Kyle Gass announced Tuesday there will be a new Tenacious D album out by the time the duo kicks off the Canadian leg of their upcoming tour.

Post-Apocalypto, their first album since 2012, is set to drop Nov. 2. Tenacious D hits Calgary’s Grey Eagle Resort and Casino on Dec. 10 followed by shows in Edmonton and Vancouver.

Black and Gass also announced the debut of an animated series – also titled Post-Apocalypto – on Sept. 28. Voiced by the pair, the cartoon was hand-drawn by Black.

The six-part series, according to a release, follows Tenacious D as they are “thrust into a world of complete and utter destruction following the drop of an atomic bomb.”

A description on YouTube, where the series will appear, reads: “The D is ready to rock your world and melt your minds.”
