As expected since last week, Black Sabbath have official announced today that they are back. The band made the announcement over at the Whiskey A Go Go in California. Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Bill Ward are back together and are ready to roll. The band are planning to record a new studio album, their first with Osbourne on it since 1978's Never Say Die. Producing the album will be renowned producer Rick Rubin. The album is expected to be released in the fall of 2012. The band will also be headlining for the Download Festival on June 10, 2012. As expected, a worldwide tour will happen sometime next year.
Well this is fantastic news. I'm very happy to see the first line-up reunited. It's about time!
