Tenacious D have announced an autumn tour of the United States, focusing on swing states in the run-up to the Presidential Election.

"The D are very excited to announce The Purple Nurple Tour... twisting hard to the Left!," say the band in a statement posted on social media.

"JB & KG will be hitting swing states across the country, with special stops in NYC and DC, and partnering with 46 for 46 to promote voter registration and overall civic action through music.
