image for Tenacious D have announced a sequel to 2006’s ‘The Pick Of Destiny’

While their set contained a number of their best-known hits, it was a comment from frontman Jack Black that had the crowd talking.

“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,” Black said.

Tenacious D’s The Pick Of Destiny was released back in November of 2006 to mixed reviews, earning only $13.9 million back from its reported $20 million budget.

As it stands, Tenacious D are reportedly on track to also release a new album this year, tentatively titled Post-Apocalypto.

In interviews, Jack Black has referred to the new project as a “rock opera”.

Ours is gonna go right there, somewhere in there, and all of the other ‘supposed rock operas’ can suck it!
