Tenacious D Announces New Album, 'Rize of the Fenix'

Tenacious D, the mock-rock duo comprised of Jack Black and Kyle Gass, will release its third album and first effort in six years, "Rize of the Fenix," in May.

"Fenix" follows the group's 2001 self-titled album, which featured funny-but-actually-awesome-and-well-written rock tracks like "Wonderboy" and "Tribute," and 2006's "The Pick of Destiny," which served as the soundtrack to their film "Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny." Black spent the hiatus starring in comedies like "Be Kind Rewind," "Gulliver's Travels" and both "Kung Fu Panda"'s, while Gass has appeared in films like "Extreme Movie" and Black's "Year One."

The duo is included on the newly announced lineup for the Sasquatch! Music Festival, which will invade the Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Wash. from May 25-28. Tenacious D recently supported the Foo Fighters on the Australian leg of their Wasting Light tour last year. Watch Foos frontman Dave Grohl play a demon in the 2002 music video for "Tribute":
