Black Sabbath reunion definitely on?

Black Sabbath have reported they are to make a “special announcement” next week.

The legendary heavy metal pioneers are to be in attendance at a conference at the Whiskey-a-Go-Go next Friday morning.

It is not yet known what the band will be announcing, but it adds fuel to the current rumours that the band’s original line-up of Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward have plans to work together again.

In the summer of 2011, it was reported the band had already reunited and were back in the studio working on new material, but these reports were quashed by Iommi approximately twenty four hours later.

In 2001, the last time the attempted to make a new record, the sessions were cut short when Ozzy resumed solo work. As a result, the proposed album was never finished. A new song ‘Scary Dreams’ was, however, performed live at various gigs. You can view footage of the unreleased song below.
