VIDEO: Tenacious D – “To Be The Best”

Tenacious D

Tenacious D – the wonder duo of Jack Black and Kyle Gass – have released a new video! It’s the first taste of new, recorded material from the duo in some time, and it’s been far too long.

It’s less of a music video, and more of a prologue to their new album. Some backstory. If you’re impatient you can skip to about 4.20 for the actual song, which goes for just over a minute, but you’re better off watching the whole thing. Seeing Dave Grohl train the pair in guitar playing and ballroom dancing is a highlight. They fly on an eagle too.

Prior warning: Kyle’s little basement/den/slum scene is surprisingly graphic and slightly disturbing.

Rize of the Fenix is set for release on May 15. It’s going to be hilarious. Trust me, I heard “Roadie” when they supported Foo Fighters.
