Tenacious D – Rize of the Fenix

4th Feb 12 (Sat) Leave a comment

Tenacious D confirmed on Friday 2/3 that the band – actors Jack Black and Kyle Gass – is in fact working on a follow-up to the Pick of Destiny, which was released back in 2006 to not-so-critical acclaim. It will be titled Rize of the Fenix (website with teaser clip).

Assuming this album is more like their debut (in 2001) and not so much like PoD, this may be some of the best music news of the year.

Tenacious D working on Album #3

Tenacious D news, as reported in Paste

Four years have passed since Tenacious D released The Pick of Destiny, but a new album from the D-ynamic Duo should be released by the end of the year.

Jack Black and Kyle Gass will be returning to familiar subject matter on the new record. “We’re gonna be talking about love, there are gonna be some songs about sex and there’s gonna be songs about food,” Black recently told Spinner.

At the moment, The Greatest Band in the World’s new album is still untitled and lacks an official release date, but Black says that they are about halfway through the writing process. “We need another few months,” he said. “But you can look for it at the end of 2011.”

Black added that another feature film adventure starring The D might not be out of the question either. “This is strictly a musical endeavor, but I would not rule out another film,” he said. “Although it would probably be on the lower-budge.”

Read more on Spinner, too.  Hopefully it’s as good as their debut, and not like that deuce they dropped with Pick of Destiny.  I could use another “Tribute“-like effort…

Tenacious 3

12th Jul 08 (Sat) Leave a comment

Per Paste Magazine‘s blog, Tenacious D (Kyle Gass & Jack Black, below) are working (even if slowly) on their 3rd album…

Kyle Gass announced that he and his brother-in-rock Jack Black are back in the studio and should have their new album out soon. But Gass also says they have a mere one and a half songs wrapped up for the LP. This could largely be due to Gass stating the album is slated to become a masterpiece, so please plan your year-end list accordingly.

“We’d like to do one final masterpiece. I think we both know we’re approaching death, as it were, and we’d like to have a lasting legacy,” Gass told Billboard.

The album remains untitled and there is no confirmed release date.

“It might take the rest of our lives, but I think it’ll be worth waiting for,” Gass says.

No word on when it’ll be done or if Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl will help out on drums again.  I loved their debut.  The Pick of Destiny (movie) was good (even though it was cheesy).  The Pick of Destiny (album) was, well… too short and too much like a skit/trailer for the movie.

Here’s hoping the 3rd is a return to form…
