After a few months of playing games with the media, the original line-up of Black Sabbath have announced they are working together once again. There are plans for a world tour, but also new recordings with legendary producer Rick Rubin at the helm.
Sabbath last attempted to record new material in 2001, but the sessions were aborted when Ozzy Osbourne returned to solo work. Although the band issued a couple of new studio recordings as part of their ‘Reunion’ double live album, if the new sessions are a success, it will mark the first time the original Black Sabbath have recorded a full album together.
Watch their official statement below.
