Back in Black
Sabbath, that is. Yes, Black Sabbath announced today that their new album will be coming out in June. Titled 13, the album will feature original Black Sabbath members Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler, according to Rolling Stone.
Apparently, it's the first studio album together since 1978's Never Say Die!, although it's not quite a full-on reunion: Bill Ward dropped out of Black Sabbath projects last May, and drummer Brad Wilk from Rage Against The Machine will step in.
The album was mostly recorded in Los Angeles, with renowned producer Rick Rubin. And the band is slated to go to New Zealand, Australia and Japan to tour in advance of the album.
