The world has been hanging out for a sequel to Tenacious D’s feature-length film The Pick Of Destiny. Wait no longer! Jack Black has announced over the weekend that a sequel is due out within a matter of months.
Tenacious D performed at the Shaky Knees Festival in Atlanta, Georgia on Sunday, where they played alongside Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The National and Vance Joy.
Jack Black took a brief moment out of their set to announce that a sequel to their 2006 film The Pick Of Destiny is set to be released in October.
“I don’t know where you’ll be able to see it, but we have decided that it’s happening and it’s coming out,”
Tenacious D’s The Pick Of Destiny was released back in November of 2006. It featured cameos from Dio, Meatloaf and Dave Ghrohl.
If you do not remember The Pick Of Destiny, here is a little refresher of one of the best Rock Off’s featuring The Devil (AKA Dave Ghrohl).
New album and a rock opera?
Including the announcement of the movie, Tenacious D are reportedly on track to also release a new album this year, tentatively titled “Post-Apocalyto”.
During an appearance on Conan O’Brien in December, Jack Black explained the new album would be a rock opera.
“It’s a post-apocalyptic musical comedy, and the idea is that you know, you’ve got Pink Floyd The Wall, and you’ve got Tommy [by] The Who, and those are the only true rock operas in existence.”
“You hear rock opera all the time. There’s only two rock operas. Ours is gonna go right there, somewhere in there, and all of the other ‘supposed rock operas’ can suck it! ‘Cause they suck.”
No word as of yet if the new album will tie in with the movie as a soundtrack or as a stand-alone. Nor if we will expect Dave Ghrohl to return. Either way, we will have until October to find out more.
