After five years of kicking back, Tenacious D are hitting the road. On Tuesday the humor-rock duo encompassing Jack Black and Kyle Gass announced a North American tour, which will commence June 16 in Québec and finish up on Nov. 13 in Chicago.
The announcements arrived in typical Tenacious D fashion: by way of a cartoon tour trailer in which an animated Black and Gass aimlessly play videogames and spit off various expletives, brainstorming methods for paying next month’s rent. The solution: a new album … probably. “Dude, that’s gonna take us like five more years,” Black bellows in the clip. Whether we’ll get a new Tenacious D album within the year is up for debate, but the tour is set in stone. Tickets go on sale this Friday, May 18 at 10 a.m. local time.
