Tenacious D will hit the road again this October in support of their hugely successful album Rize of the Fenix. This tour follows the sold out dates they played here in June, which included 3 nights at Brixton Academy plus a storming performance at Download Festival.

The bands first studio album in over six years, Rize of the Fenix was released in May on Columbia Records. Tenacious D describes the making of the album as “journey similar to that of Gandolph in The Lord of the Rings.” Produced by the brilliant John Kimbrough, Rize Of The Fenix was recorded in the garage behind his LA home and features Jack Black and Kyle Gass (Tenacious D’s core duo), performing with Dave Grohl (drums), John Spiker (bass, piano, organ)and John Konesky (electric guitar). The album was engineered and mixed by John Spiker who has been touring with the band for years.
