Tenacious D have announced a new album and North American tour in a new animated video posted today.

In the video, Jack Black and Kyle Gass realise they have to pay the rent and need to write another album, but it's going to take five years, so they're "fucked, so fucked." But then Kyle has an idea, and we hear a snippet of new music from the pair, accompanied by the text 'New album 2018... probably. New tour 2018... definitely.'

The new album will be the duo's fourth full-length and the follow-up to 2012's Rise Of The Fenix. Last week, Jack Black announced that the pair were also working on the sequel to 2006 movie The Pick Of Destiny.
