About the last band in the world you would think would be affected by violence at a show was on Saturday night (July 28), as Tenacious D's performance at Las Vegas' House of Blues was cut short after an altercation between two audience members resulted in a stabbing.
The hardest rocking acoustic band of all time, Tenacious D, are once again ready to tear it up as they've got a new record to promote. Jack Black and Kyle Gass have always worn their influences on their sleeve, and the group have chosen to honor one of the all-time great bands - the Who - while on tour.
If there's any film star/recording artist you could conceivably expect to see onstage belting out background vocals on a Queen song being covered by a band dedicated to releasing concept albums inspired by the 'Mega Man' video game franchise, it's Jack Black of Tenacious D.

Starting today, comedy-rock band Tenacious D are streaming their upcoming record 'Rize of the Fenix' on their website. With a release date of May 14 in Europe and May 15 in North America, the duo's new record marks their first release since 2006's 'The Pick of Destiny.'

To promote their upcoming album, 'Rize of the Fenix,' Tenacious D have enlisted the help of their friends in both the comedy and rock worlds. Bob Odenkirk, known for his work on 'Mr. Show' and 'Breaking Bad,' teamed up with bassist Rudy Sarzo (Quiet Riot, Whitesnake, Ozzy Osbourne) to create an mock-informational film on behalf of the Tinnitus Institute.
