The album is the soundtrack for the duo’s six-episode animated series Tenacious D in Post Apocalypto, which was released through YouTube. The tour kicked off with a two-month North American run starting in New York City and wrapping in Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve. They headed to Europe in June of 2019 for several dates, before returning to North America to perform in July and August. On October 15, 2019, the fifth leg of the tour will see Tenacious D return to the U.S. for a fall run that will last a couple of weeks.
