Tenacious D return to the UK this autumn
Date Posted: 19/07/12
Comedy rockers Tenacious D are to return to the UK later this year in support of their third studio album Rize of the Fenix, which was released in May.
Fans of Jack Black and his good friend Kyle Gass should book Brighton hotels for Thursday, October 18th to catch the first date of the tour at the Brighton Centre.
The duo then head to Wolverhampton and Manchester, before finishing at London's Hammersmith Apollo on Wednesday, October 24th.
Anyone who has seen one of Tenacious D's hilarious music videos will be quick to recognise the frontman Black, who has played leading comic roles in many films, including High Fidelity, Shallow Hal and School of Rock.
Their latest album Rize of the Fenix was produced by the excellent John Kimbrough, recorded in a garage behind his home in Los Angeles. The pair were joined by Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl on drums, John Spiker on bass, piano and organ and John Jonesky on electric guitar.
Black has described the production process for the album, which is their first in six years, as a voyage similar to the one taken by Gandolph in The Lord of the Rings.
