Tenacious D‘s album release schedule could definitely be called “infrequent.” Their self-titled debut album came out in 2001, and it was followed by The Pick Of Destiny in 2006 and Rize of the Fenix in 2012. That’s most likely due to how busy Jack Black is with his other endeavors, but now, The D is back: the duo just announced that they’re going on tour, and there might even be a new album on the way.

After that, they’ll play more traditional concert dates in November, with stops in Brooklyn; Boston; Washington, DC; Philadelphia; Pittsburgh; Columbus; Detroit; and Chicago. Ticket pre-sales start Wednesday, May 16, the on-sale day is Friday, May 18, and information about both can be found on the Tenacious D website.
There’s even more good news, as I alluded to: they haven’t confirmed it yet, but it looks like they’re trying to have a new album done by the end of this year. In the press release announcing the tour, it reads, “New Album 2018…..Probably. New Tour 2018…..DEFINITELY,” and it later says the band is “also hard at work at the follow up to 2012’s Rise of the Fenix; stay tuned for more…”
