Tenacious D Reveal First Album In Five Years, Release First Sample

The Tenacious D website has become an animated unveiling of their new album The Rize of the Fenix, its cover and a title track, of sorts. It’s all looking and sounding… much as you remember from last time around.

Rize is due out in May, and The D, as I understand they like to be known, will be doing some gigs to support it.

Here’s the little “announcement” snippet that plays on the site, and which starts with an admission about The Pick of Destiny.

I know there’s an awful lot of Jack Black hate in the film blogosphere, but I don’t buy into it. He’s a victim of typecasting, and even if he was a willing victim, I still think he’s talented and amusing when working on something strong.

Kyle Gass, the other half of Tenacious D, seems to draw far less fire but as far as I can tell it’s simply because he’s less famous. I guess he hasn’t done enough to make people feel bitter.
