Tenacious D return with YouTube series and new album Post-Apocalypto

Tenacious D have announced that they’ll release a six-part animated series on YouTube later this month.

It’s titled Post-Apocalypto and it’ll get under way on September 28, with new episodes arriving every Friday. Tenacious D duo Jack Black and Kyle Gass marked the news by releasing a short trailer and a stream of the theme tune. Find both below.

The series will see the pair attempt to save humanity in the aftermath of a nuclear explosion and battle evil creatures which have spawned following the blast.

Black illustrated all six episodes, while he and Gass voiced the characters.

An accompanying 21-track album will launch on November 2, with Foo Fighters leader Dave Grohl playing drums on the John Spiker-produced record.

Post-Apocalypto is now available for pre-order.
