Tenacious D will tour mostly in September and October this year, and they've chosen those two months very purposefully. The band is hitting the road not only to play music, but to help get American voters registered for the 2020 election.
"[Donald Trump is] the most divisive, corrupt and dangerous President in the modern history of this country, and we simply cannot stand for another four years of his administration! Now is the time to elect a REAL leader!" said Tenacious D mainmen Jack Black and Kyle Gass.
"In 2016, six states were decided by 2 percentage points or less, and ten states were decided by 4 percentage points or less. Swing states played a pivotal role in the outcome of that election, and they will again in 2020. Knowing that, we looked at each other and agreed: just like the tale of Post-Apocalypto, it is time for Tenacious D to RIDE and help save the world from Trumpian destruction. With great rock comes great responsibility."
Seriously though, go vote. Roughly 40% of Americans didn't vote in 2016 and now we're dealing with what we're dealing with. Don't let it happen twice.
