Those serious 'arteests' known as Tenacious D are about to rev up their shtick fueled rock and roll engine and hit the road for a summer tour chock full of chuckles and guffaws, with musical accompaniment. With a new album titled ‘Rise of the Fenix’ set for May release, the much loved 'comedy' duo of Jack Black and Andrew Ridgeley, sorry, we mean Kyle Gass, will no doubt have fans grooving along and eating up their gags, which of course is better than gagging up their eats. Ba-dum-bum.

The tour launches May 25 in California and takes the duo across the states as well as a week of dates in Europe, and will run through the end of July. You can grab ticket info and more from the TD website.
