Tenacious D have released a medley of songs from the Who’s rock opera Tommy, including “Pinball Wizard,” “There’s a Doctor,” and “Go to the Mirror.” It arrived with a new video directed by Liam Lynch (who also directed the band’s film The Pick of Destiny), and their recording is being released as a 7″. All sales will benefit Everytown for Gun Safety. Watch it below.
Jack Black and Kyle Gass released this statement with the new single: “Who better to deliver a tribute to the greatest rock opera of all times? Who? The D! That’s Who!! We’ve been working on this medley for 20 years. It’s finally ready to be unleashed. Crank it. It’s a humdinger. Enjoy.”
The duo are about to tour. Find those dates below. They’ve also released a new fiber bar.
