Tenacious D bring their Rize of the Fenix tour to Ireland for one night only on Saturday 20 October. Earlier this summer Jack Black and Kyle Gass, the duo known as Tenacious D, released their long awaited third album Rize of the Fenix. Recorded over the past six years the record brought the duo back to their roots. “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.”
Produced by the brilliant John Kimbrough, Rize Of The Fenix was recorded in the garage behind his LA home and features Jack Black and Kyle Gass (Tenacious D’s core duo), performing with Dave Grohl (drums), John Spiker (bass, piano, organ)and John Konesky (electric guitar). The album was engineered and mixed by John Spiker who has been touring with the band for years.
Tickets priced from €40 inclusive of booking fee are on sale this Friday 21 July at 9am from Ticketmaster.
