HBO has announced that a Flight of the Conchords special with Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie is coming later this year in the spring.
The hour-long special will be recorded in front of a live audience in the UK, and will feature the duo performing both classic and new songs from their “Flight of the Conchords Sing Flight of the Conchords Tour.”
“The Humans Are Dead” is not just a Flight of the Conchords song. Really, the humans are actually dead…well, technically undead. New Zealand’s Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords, Eagle vs. Shark) and Taika Waititi (Eagle vs. Shark, Boy) have created a “vampire documentary” called What We Do In The Shadows and they believe “the truth about vampires must be told in America.”
This award-winning independent film, which we got to see a trailer for back in December, is now in New Zealand, but Clement and Waititi are raising funds on Kickstarter to bring it to 70 cities in the United States.
I Told You I Was Freaky, the second album from New Zealand comedy/folk/… group Flight of the Conchords, nearly defies categorization, but it’s worth a listen for it’s all-over-the-place sound and smirk inducing lyrics from Oscar winner Bret McKenzie and Jermaine Clement.
