Black Sabbath to reunite for tour, album

Postby sledge » Thu Nov 17, 2011 1:42 am

British heavy metal legends Black Sabbath have announced they will reunite for a tour and to make a new album, the original four members of the band led by Ozzy Osbourne have announced.

The group, whose hits include Paranoid and Iron Man, unveiled their plans at the legendary Whisky A Go Go club on Sunset Strip, where they played their first Los Angeles gig four decades ago.

"We've tried a reunion before and it didn't work, but this time, for some magical reasons ... we've written seven or eight songs and they're really good," said Osbourne.

Guitarist Tony Iommi said the group's members had always stayed in touch, but it was good to be back in the band.

"It's not that we haven't spoken for all these years. It's been a constant thing," he said.

"It's great that we can all actually be in a room and start playing together."

Osbourne, Iommi, bassist Geezer Butler and drummer Bill Ward, who are all now in their early 60s, wore the group's signature black outfits at the announcement, dubbed "Reunited. 33 years in the making", on their website.

The band, which formed in 1968, reunited for a first time in 1997, but did not produce an album.

The new record - their first material together since 1978's Never Say Die - will be released next year through Vertigo/Universal Republic Records.

At the same time they will embark on a worldwide arena tour, including headlining the Download Festival in England next June.

"It's now or never. We are getting along great. Everything's really good," said Iommi.

"It's like putting on an old glove. It's fantastic."

Wow good news the original members getting back together and recording a new album and reunion tour. :rockon:

It is a good thing, indeed, that the true fathers of heavy metal are still creating and together, alive. Can't wait to hear them again!
