Tenacious D new album & tour coming, Hammerstein Ballroom included (WIN TIX!) —- 2012 dates & SXSW videos

Tenacious D @ SXSW 2012 (cicatriz83)
Tenacious D

Jack Black & Kyle Gass aka Tenacious D, who just stopped in Austin make their live return at SXSW, will release a new album of (hopefully) funny and rockin’ songs called Rize Of The Fenix on May 15. They said:

“We recorded down and dirty in a friend’s garage with a shoestring budget of 600 dollars, much like Nirvana’s first album “Bleach”-or the Beatles first album “Help”. Rough and yet a masterpiece.”

May tour dates in support of that masterpiece were previously announced and include the Sasquach Festival.

It has now been reported that the duo will be heading out on a summer tour that brings them back to NYC to rock our socks off at Hammerstein Ballroom on June 28th! Tickets ($55) for the NYC show go on sale Friday, 3/30, at 10am. We also have a pair you can WIN. Contest details, the new album art, with all currently known tour dates, and some videos from SXSW, below…
