"The brave warriors return...savagely beaten down by the long exile in the desert of non believers.they emerge triumphant.survivors of a post apocalyptic war on rock and roll.more heroic and robust than ever before. it is the dawning of a new day..the dawn of the D." -Tenacious D
Their first studio album in six years, Rize of the Fenix is the follow-up to 2006's gold The Pick of Destiny and 2001's platinum debut album Tenacious D. 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).
