This years SXSW is obvi going to be epic, but perhaps it will be spun into an epic musical tale sung by lyrical wizards Jack Black and Kyle Gass!!
The duo behind Tenacious D will debut their brand new musical romp Rize of the Fenix at a special SXSW performance.
The show, only available to music badge and wristband holders, kicks off
their magical adventure through time and space the Rize of the Fenix tour which includes stops in Santa Barbara, Oakland and Vancouver, BC (for full tour list, scroll below).
Tenacious D will also play The Sasquatch Festival in Washington on memorial day.
Rize Of The Fenix, the fantastically funny duo’s first album in over 6 years, will officially be released on May 15th. Jack Black describes the making of the album like:
"…a journey similar to that of Gandolph in The Lord of the Rings."
Oh, and lest we forget Foo Fighter’s fans - Dave Grohl is featured as drummer extrodinaire on the album!!
We can’t wait to listen to Rize in all it’s mystical, magical glory. How about U??
