If you've been hanging out for a sequel to Tenacious D's feature-length film debut, The Pick Of Destiny, there's good news in the pipeline, with Jack Black announcing over the weekend that a sequel is due out within a matter of months. While performing at the Shaky Knees Music Festival yesterday (May 6), Jack Black briefly informed the crowd about the follow-up to the film. They then filmed their movie, Tenacious D in The Pick Of Destiny in 2006 and recorded a supporting album of the same name.

"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", Black said during the set.

Black and Gass laid somewhat low for the next few years, eventually releasing a new album, Rize of the Fenix, in 2012. It's unclear whether the film will receive a wide release or if it will head straight to DVD and digital. In an interview with Conan O'Brien past year, Black said that they're working on a rock opera and compared the project to Pink Floyd's The Wall.

Sensex surges 293 pts, Nifty above 10700 as bank stocks rally
At 2:42 PM, the BSE Sensex was trading at 35,187, up 273 points, while the Nifty50 index was trading at 10,709, up 91 points. Among broader markets, midcaps traded strong as well but mildly underperformed the benchmarks, gaining around 0.70 percent.

Now, couple this with the fact that during an interview with Louise Molony on the United Kingdom radio station Kerrang!, Jack Black mentioned casually that the band was working on "a post-apocalyptic musical comedy that's an animated series that no one wanted in Hollywood but we're making it anyway".

"You hear rock opera all the time". Together, the two form Tenacious D, that satirical heavy metal juggernaut that mixes real world musical chops with a ribald sense of humor that skewers the entire rock music industry. Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl also delivered a memorable cameo in the film's closing scene, playing Satan in a rock-off against Black and Kyle Gass.
