Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath Reform For Tour And New Album

Black Sabbath, the iconic British rock band of the 1970's, are reforming with their original line up - including Ozzy Osbourne. The reunion has been kept a closely guarded secret for some time, but guitarist Tony Iommi revealed the news to The Birmingham Mail.
The band, consisting of Ozzy, Tony, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward have already begun rehearsing for an upcoming tour, but the even bigger news concerns a new studio album. In June, Ozzy and Iommi began writing new material for a record that will be released next year. Tony said, "We're really looking forward to it and I think the stuff we've been writing is really good.It's more back to the old original stuff". The guitarist added that the reunion has been kept under wraps for several months, saying, "It's all been very hush-hush. Ozzy's been the worst at trying to hold it back. He's doing a lot of TV and he's being asked stuff about a reunion and he's going 'well I never say never". Iommi, who played with band Heaven & Hell until singer Ronnie James Dio died in 2010, said he had plenty of offers to start a new band but couldn't reveal the Sabbath reformation, saying, ".I couldn't tell them what I was doing. I just had to say I was busy".
Black Sabbath, best known for their rock classic 'Paranoid', formed in Birmingham in 1969. Ozzy was fired from the group in 1979 and there have since been innumerable variations of the line-up.
