Black Sabbath never say ‘Never again’

The Masters of Reality

Well, that’s one way to trumpet that your pivotal gang of heavy metal pioneers are back in the proverbial saddle.

Black Sabbath announced on Friday that they’ve reformed with the classic line-up – Tony Iommi, Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward – and will record a new album and tour next year.

Uber-producer Rick Rubin will produce the record, with sessions commencing in January 2012.  The tour kicks off later in 2012 and includes a headline slot on the final night of next year’s “Download” festival.

If you fancy finding out more, there’s a YouTube video of the band’s press conference here.
