black sabbath Black Sabbath reunites for new album, massive tour

The long-rumored reunion of Black Sabbath is finally official. At a press conference in Los Angeles this morning, the iconic metal outfit’s four founding members — frontman Ozzy Osbourne, guitarist Tony Iommi, bassist Geezer Butler, and drummer Bill Ward — revealed plans for their first studio album in 33 years. The as yet untitled record will be produced by Rick Rubin and released in Fall 2012 via Vertigo/Universal Republic.

In addition, the band will embark on a worldwide arena tour, as well as headline the 2012 installment of the UK-based Download Music Festival on June 10th.

Below, you can watch a video promo for the reunion.

The band’s original lineup previously reunited in the late 1990s with similar plans for a new studio album. However, studio sessions with Rubin were halted in favor of Osbourne’s solo album, and the band ultimately went on hiatus.
