News: A New Tenacious D Movie Is Coming

Tenacious D’s feature-length film debut The Pick Of Destiny was greeted with mixed reviews and a poor showing at the box office, but there are still many fans of the film. Fans of the movie and the band can now rejoice, as Jack Black announced over the weekend that a sequel is due out within a matter of months.

The duo of Kyle Gass and Jack Black performed at the Shaky Knees Festival in Atlanta, Georgia on Sunday, while performing Jack Black delivered the good news. Nearing the sixth anniversary of their last album, Black announced  that a sequel to the 2006 film will be released in October. He said that:

“I don’t know where you’ll be able to see it, but we have decided that it’s happening and it’s coming out."

They are also reportedly close to releasing a new album tentatively titled Post-Apocalypto, which Black has described as a “rock opera”.

“We’re working on a rock opera,” he revealed to Conan O’Brien in December. “It’s a post-apocalyptic musical comedy, and the idea is that you know, you’ve got Pink Floyd The Wall, and you’ve got Tommy [by] The Who, and those are the only true rock operas in existence.”

“You hear rock opera all the time. There’s only two rock operas. Ours is gonna go right there, somewhere in there, and all of the other ‘supposed rock operas’ can suck it! ‘Cause they suck.”
