HUGE news from the almighty Black Sabbath! They WILL be recording a new album and will be touring again!!! After the success of “13,” we all were hoping that they wouldn’t be done, and now we know that they aren’t! Here’s what Ozzy told Metal Hammer, “The whole Sabbath experience this time around was great. We all made friends, we didn’t fuck around, we all knew that we had a job to do, and we did it. It was a lot of fun. So we’re going to do one more album, and a final tour. Once the dust settled after the last tour we started discussing the idea, because we were getting asked about it all the time. I said to Sharon ‘What’s going on? Because if there’s no more Sabbath I want to get on with my own thing again’ and she came back and said ‘Let me look into it.’ Three weeks later I asked her about it again, and she said ‘Oh, I still have to talk to so and so…’ and I said ‘Sharon, I ain’t fucking 21 any more, if we’re going to do I want to do it before I’m 70!’ Time isn’t on our side! So she made the call and came back and said ‘Yeah, the record company wants another album.’ I believe Rick Rubin is going to do it with us again.”
So when can we expect the new album? SOON. Ozzy said, “It’ll be sooner rather than later. Obviously a lot of it is coming down to Tony’s health, he’s obviously got his cancer treatment, but we’ll get onto it next year. I don’t know if we’ll be writing in England or LA, but I’ll fly to the fucking moon for it if I have to!”
HELL YES! “13” was such a great album, and to know that we have more new material coming from Black Sabbath is just AWESOME! MORE IOMMI RIFFS ARE COMING!!! Stay tuned for more details, but for now, let’s celebrate with their full set from London earlier this year! All hail Sabbath!
