Tenacious D Announce A New Album, Movie, And Tour Of New Zealand And Australia

Tenacious D, the one-album wonder band that helped frontman Jack Black to a busy life on the Cinema screen have announced the unexpected; A Tenacious D movie. Entitled "Tenacious D in: The Pick of Destiny", the movie is about two friends (Jack Black and Kyle Gass) who quest to find a mighty guitar pick which will aid them in their ultimate search of fame and glory in the rock and roll industry. Fellow rockers Meatloaf and Dave Grohl will also appear in the film. The movie will hit the big screen on the 11th of January 2007.

Of course, you can't have a movie without a soundtrack, and Tenacious D will be releasing just that, through SonyBMG, on November 11th. Likewise called "The Pick of Destiny", the soundtrack, to be produced by John King (The Dust Brothers), will follow the characteristically unique stylings of the duo's debut album. Star guests on the soundtrack include Meatloaf, Dave Grohl and Ronnie James Dio.

can't say buying the tenacious d album was worth the money, but they are pretty hilarious. but £10 to listen to two guys talk about a load of bullsh**, when i could have bought something a little more entertaining such as stone sour? not a good move on my part, and them having a tour just doesn't seem to be good news. i'd rather see james blunt live, and let's face it, that's a sacrifice

I'd go and see them if it wasn't too expensive. I don't know what £10 is in US currency. But I'd like to see them live just because they're f***ing weird. It'd be a very interesting concert!

£10 is roughly $20 i guess in the US.
