Tenacious D have announced November 2 as the release date of their fourth studio album “Post-Apocalypto,” marking the follow-up to 2012’s “Rize of the Fenix.”

Produced by John Spiker, the effort will feature 21 songs, as well as a six-episode accompanying animated mini-series that will premiere on the band’s YouTube channel.

When it comes to personnel, Jack Black and Kyle Gass will be joined by Dave Grohl behind the drum kit.

The series will premiere on September 28. Then, a new episode will be rolled out each Friday up until the record’s official release. Note that each frame of every episode was hand-drawn by Mr. Black himself. Additionally, every character was voiced by either Black and Gass.

Each of the six episodes will feature songs from the new album. As each episode is premiered, the track that was presented in it will be made available via digital music platforms.

As for the album’s theme, the press release reads:

“‘Post-Apocalypto’ finds Tenacious D thrust into a world of complete and utter destruction following the drop of an atomic bomb.
 
“Surviving the attack in classic cinematic fashion (a good old imperishable 1950s refrigerator), the duo quickly learns that new forms of evil have spawned from the blast. One thing becomes apparent – for humanity to prevail, Tenacious D must save the world.
 
“With unimaginable twists and turns, an insane visit to the White House, a time machine, a space adventure, and the help of some tried and true daddy issues, ‘Post-Apocalypto’ is as hilarious as it is political, and as brilliant and multi-faceted as its incredible creators. The songs are damn good, too
