Black Sabbath's new album, 13, will be released in June on Vertigo/Republic in the U.S. Ozzy Osbourne (vocals), Tony Iommi (guitar) and Geezer Butler (bass) -- recorded with drummer Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine.
(Original drummer Bill Ward was unable to participate in the reunion due to a contract disagreement.)
Produced by Rick Rubin, 13 marks the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees’ return to Vertigo, their original label; it’s also the group’s first studio album together since 1978’s Never Say Die!
In advance of the album’s release, Black Sabbath will do select tour dates, with additional
shows to be announced.
