Black Sabbath announce new album


Black Sabbath

So, originally billed as the first Black Sabbath album to feature the original line-up for 33 years, before drummer Bill Ward bowed out, three quarters of the original band and Rage Against The Machine drummer Brad Wilk announced the release of new album ’13’ this weekend.

Produced by Rick Rubin, it will be released by Warner/Vertigo in June – no specific date has been announced yet, but as they went with 13 Jan for the announcement then why don’t we just guess that it’ll hit iTunes on 13 Jun? The album’s called ’13’, you see. Do you see what they’ve done there?
