Black Sabbath’s 13 Announced

Posted on January 15, 2013 AT 07:15am

Sabbath Bloody Sabbath

Black Sabbath have announced that their new album, 13, will be released this June.

Though not a full reunion of the band’s original line-up, the album is their first studio album since 1978’s Never Say Die to feature original singer Ozzy Osbourne on vocals, Tony Iommi on guitar, and Geezer Butler on bass.

Joining the trio are Rage Against The Machine’s Brad Wilk (original drummer Bill Ward opted out of the reunion), and Ozzy keyboardist Adam Wakeman, who, fittingly, is the son of Yes’ Rick Wakeman, who played keyboards on “Sabbra Cadabra,” a track from Sabbath’s 1973 album Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.

The album is being produced by Rick Rubin, who’s worked with such Sabbath-inspired bands as Metallica, Slayer, and Danzig.

Prior to the album being release, the band will embark on a tour of New Zealand and Australia, and appear at Ozzfest in Japan.
