It's been over a decade since TENACIOUS D first rocked speakers with their phenomenal debut album, and in that time the duo of Jack Black and Kyle Gass have witnessed their comedic musical offspring take a career path much like the bands they've been known to parody. The epic first album followed by a sophomore slump, the backlash, years of inactivity, and finally the inevitable rise from the ashes. It would be pretty funny if this was actually all by design. Ha Ha - the joke's on you, rock critics and music industry!
That's right, true believers - RIZE OF THE FENIX (pre-order it now on iTunes!), already hailed as ''The Greatest Album Ever Recorded by Anyone Ever'' by EXTRA's Maria Menounos, is coming to fine record emporiums nationwide on May 15th. The long-awaited comeback album by Kyle Gass and Jack Black, collectively known as the mighty TENACIOUS D, will demand to be a member of your audio listening collection. The Rock Father has the first music video for To Be The Best (featuring BATMAN FOREVER star Val Kilmer, along with old folks favorite Josh Groban and FOO FIGHTERS overlord Dave Grohl) along with a stream of the title track - Rize of the Fenix - below.
