According to reports, you might actually hear that new Black Sabbath album fairly soon. The band is shooting for an April 2013 release on the Rick Rubin recorded album, the Sabbath’s first with Ozzy Osbourne since 1978’s Never Say Die, though they did record two songs for the Reunion album in 1998. The band, which had to cancel all but two of their original shows last year due to Tony Iommi’s lymphoma, has also scheduled some 2013 shows around the world.
