Tenacious D is ready to rock you. The kooky duo--Jack Black and Kyle Gass--will return with their second cd, the Pick of Destiny, on November 14th. The cd doubles as the soundtrack to the Tenacious D film, Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny. The film (with a cameo from Ronnie James Dio!!!!!!!!) opens on November 17th.

Here's more info, and it's straight from the horse's mouth, or at least from prnewswire:

Tenacious D Announce a Date for Destiny

Platinum-Selling Duo Jack Black and Kyle Gass Return on November 14th With Highly Anticipated New Album The Pick of Destiny
Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny in Theaters November 17th


NEW YORK, Sept. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Epic Records has announced a November 14th release date for The Pick of Destiny, the highly anticipated soundtrack to the upcoming New Line Cinema comedy, Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny. The movie, an epic musical adventure that follows Tenacious D (Jack Black and Kyle Gass) on their quest to obtain the Pick and become The Greatest Band on Earth, arrives in theaters on November 17th.

The album, produced by the Dust Brothers' John King (Beck) and mixed by Ken Andrews (Pete Yorn, A Perfect Circle) and featuring guest appearances by Dave Grohl (drums), John Spiker (bass) and John Konesky (guitar), spotlights fifteen Tenacious D songs and dialogue highlights from the movie. Among the record's many standout tracks are "Classico," fan favorite "History," and "Kickapoo," a song written specifically for the film and guest-starring Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Meatloaf and legendary metal singer Ronnie James Dio.

The latter appears in the film's opening scene, in which a ten-year old Black (played by Troy Gentile) serenades his ultra-conservative, very religious family with a rocking rendition of "Kickapoo," a song whose lyrics would make a sailor blush. When his father (Meat Loaf), who believes rock and roll is the devil's work, unleashes his belt and shows him no mercy, tearing down all of his beloved rock posters, the young Jack Black implores Dio, one of his rock gods, for guidance. Dio reassures him that he is on the right path but must leave his stifling home environment and go to Hollywood to "find the secrets of his art."

The album is led by first single "POD" and its companion video, which is currently in heavy rotation/Big 10 on MTV. The clip was directed by Liam Lynch (Sarah Silverman: Jesus is Magic), who also directed the film and shared writing credits with Black and Gass.

The Pick of Destiny will be available in a special limited-edition deluxe version offering fans the full album as well as special tarot cards, and their very own guitar pick of destiny, all packaged in a slipcase designed to look like an ancient tome.

The full track listing for The Pick of Destiny is as follows:

"Kickapoo"
"Classico"
"Baby"
"Destiny"
"History"
"The Government Totally Sucks"
"Master Exploder"
