…and it’s lucky for some.
As reported in November, metal titans Black Sabbath will return later this year with a new album, produced by professional career-resuscitator Rick Rubin. Although the last official Sabbath release was 1995’s Forbidden, the new album will be the first Sabbath studio LP in 35 years to feature vocals from Osbourne. Classic Sabbath members Tony Iommi and Terence “Geezer” Butler are both set to feature, although a public spat with original drummer Bill Ward appears to have ruled him out of the process.
As Exclaim report, the album is now set to arrive with the relatively unshowy title 13. We now also know that Rage Against The Machine sticksman Brad Will has taken Ward’s place on the album. No more fresh news than that, we’re afraid, but the album remains slated for a June release through Vertigo Records.
