Loudwire is reporting that Tenacious D, featuring Jack Black and Kyle Gass, is releasing a new album on November 2nd titled Post-Apocalypto with Foo Fighters frontman and ex-Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl on drums. They’ll also debut a new six-episode animated series on their YouTube channel on September 28th. The animated series was hand-drawn by Black and all of the characters were voiced by Black and Gass. All of the episodes will feature songs from the upcoming Tenacious D album.

“Post-Apocalypto finds Tenacious D thrust into a world of complete and utter destruction following the drop of an atomic bomb,” reads a press release. “Surviving the attack in classic cinematic fashion (a good old imperishable 1950’s refrigerator), the duo quickly learns that new forms of evil have spawned from the blast. One thing becomes apparent — for humanity to prevail, Tenacious D must save the world.”

The storylines include travel in a time machine, a visit to the White House and a space adventure. “‘Post-Apocalypto’ is as hilarious as it is political and as brilliant and multi-faceted as its incredible creators,” the possibly biased statement continues. “The songs are damn good, too.”
