Tenacious D released their movie Pick Of Destiny in 2006 and it seems like 12 years later, we're getting a sequel. Frontman Jack Black told the crowd at the Shaky Knees Festival over the weekend that the sequel would be out in October, and that "I don't know where you'll be able to see it, but we have decided that it's happening and it's coming out."
Presumably the new movie will feature a full-on soundtrack from the band, which will also count as their first album since 2012's Rize Of The Fenix.
Tenacious D also teased a new song called "Apocalypto" before their performance at Corona Hell And Heaven Festival in Mexico City. Wikipedia is currently listing a new album from the band called Post-Apocalypto for this year, though no citation is given for that information.
So that's either the name of the Pick Of Destiny sequel or a new album… or nothing. Though Jack Black did mention the album in an interview once in December 2017, but that's the only mention of it thus far.
The original Pick Of Destiny movie did $8.2 million in the box office and received pretty mixed reviews across the board. The soundtrack went to #1 on the US Top Rock Albums that year, charted fairly highly in other countries, and came in at #200 on the US Billboard 200 at the end of 2006. The album and movie also featured musical and acting appearances by Meat Loaf, Ronnie James Dio, and Dave Grohl.
