Comedic duo Tenacious D, primarily made up of A-list Hollywood actors Jack Black and Kyle Gass, are to embark on a UK tour on the back of their upcoming third album‘Rize of the Fenix’ (to be released 14 May 2012) following their 2006 album‘The Pick of Destiny’.
The new album was recorded in a down town garage in Los Angles, and features Josh Spiker (bass and piano), John Konesky (electric guitar) and the recently acclaimed Godlike genius, Dave Grohl on drums.
Rize of the Fenix was recorded on a very tight budget, but the band have compared it to the likes of The Beatles’ Help, or Nirvana’s Bleach – “rough and yet a master piece”.
If you want to catch the band live, they will be playing three UK dates:
London Brixton Academy – 06/06/12
Manchester O2 Apollo – 10/06/12
Glasgow SECC – 12/06/12
