With the good news comes the bad right? Yesterday, due to a high ticket demand, Black Sabbath announced a second run of “The End” tour dates here in the States. While that made fans everywhere across the nation happy, a new interview with Ozzy brings some bad news. Although it was rumored that we would have another Black Sabbath album, that rumor appears to be false. NOLA.com confirms “the group has opted against recording a final album after scoring its first No. 1 and winning a Grammy Award with 2013’s “13.”
Here’s what Ozzy added in the NOLA.com interview: “It’s the end of Sabbath, believe me. In December, I’ll be fucking 68 and I think it’s time to call it the end of the day. I’m not saying I won’t get on stage with Geezer or Tony or any of them some time, but officially we’re going to be done. I don’t want it to dwindle and dwindle and play just for the sake of making another fucking sack full of cash. So it’s time, and then I’ll go back to doing my own thing.”
While it’s a huge bummer that we won’t have any more Black Sabbath albums to look forward to in the future, the catalog that they’ve left behind is untouchable. They are the creators and kings of heavy metal, and their music will forever live on in our hearts and ears forever. At least we have one last chance to thank them in person on “The End” tour. Do not miss your chance to do just that! All hail Sabbath!
