Tenacious D’s New Album/Animated Series ‘Post-Apocalypto’ Now Available, and It’s Epic

Jack Black and Kyle Gass are back again, and this time their adventure is as epic (and crass) as ever. The duo added to their legacy as Tenacious D with Post-Apocalypto, a new album and animated series that was made available today (and can be picked up at this link).

As its title might suggest, Post-Apocalypto is about Jack and Kyle’s experiences enduring a nuclear apocalypse that wipes out nearly everybody on Earth. Inexplicably, they survive, and have all kinds of adventures (many of them as R-rated as possible, naturally).

Musically, their old pal and Cal Jam coordinator Dave Grohl is back in the mix behind the drum set, as he was for previous Tenacious D records. The album component of the project essentially tells the story, but Post-Apocalypto was intended as an animated mini-series that aired on YouTube. Here’s that, in all its glory:

And the album itself, via Spotify:

The D performed two of the album’s songs on Jimmy Kimmel Live on the eve of the project’s release:
