UPDATE: Tenacious D has announced that the album will come out in May and have shared the first single, Rize Of The Fenix, which shares a name with the forthcoming album.
Tenacious D, the self-proclaimed “greatest band on earth,” are set to release their long-awaited third album, entitled Rize of the Fenix, later this year. Details have been sparse, but that should change at 4PM PST when they will make an announcement of some sort, according to the new album’s website. The full-band version of The D recently made a surprise appearance at one of drummer Brooks Wackerman’s sets in L.A. As of now there are two planned festival performances scheduled for Jack Black, Kyle Gass and the rest of their band mates this June – one at the Download Festival in the U.K. and another at Rock am Ring in Germany. Let’s hope a full tour is in the group’s future.
