Two years after dropping their latest album "The Pick of Destiny" in 2006, rock comedy band Tenacious D look set to release a new album soon. The news was revealed by one of the duo members Kyle Gass, who told, that he and his bandmate Jack Black have already begun the work for their new album.

Unfortunately, according to Kyle they have only finished about one to one and a half song only, and still don't have any clue on when the rock duo can finally release the new LP. "It's very challenging, we probably only have one to one and a half songs right now, and we probably need 12 to 15," Kyle explained. "It might take the rest of our lives, but I think it'll be worth waiting for."

Moreover, jokingly Kyle also stated that they plan to make the upcoming album as a master piece. "We'd like to do one final masterpiece I think we both know we're approaching death, as it were, and we'd like to have a lasting legacy. ('The Pick of Destiny') was kind of a soundtrack to the movie so we had to fulfill obligations that way. And now it's kind of opened up," Kyle said.

Beside speaking about Tenacious D's new record plan, on the interview, Kyle said that he also hoped to finish his side project band Trainwreck's first studio album soon. "I think that I need to really work harder at completing some of these projects. I think that I've been living on my laurels. I've been lazy, but now I think it's time to kick ass," Kyle said.

This album will be good, I just know it. Sadly, its probably gonna come out in the summer of 2010, or a month sooner. It takes them awhile to write albums, but if their going to write a masterpiece, its going to take awhile.

Alot of people don't take this band seriously because they're a comedy act. But really they have a lot of really awesome songs and I like the fact that they treat rock and roll in a funny comical matter. That's really what early rock and roll was all about. Too many bands take themselves so seriously these days. I hope this album is a real masterpiece so that the D can finally show the world that they really are not just comedians, they are truly gifted musicians as well. I hope they follow this album with a world tour cause I would totally go see them live.
