Black Sabbath Announce New Album Title '13' -
Black Sabbath has announced that their new
album will be titled '13,' according to NME.
The new album will be the first from the heavy-metal pioneers since 1978's 'Never Say Die!' album which marked the last time Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler recorded together.
Back in November, Tony Iommi revealed to The Guardian that the final album will feature 15 tracks saying:
'We've written the 15 songs and we've played them all, but now at the moment we're recording them. We're about six tracks in at the moment.'
The come-back record has been primarily recorded in Los Angeles with producer Rick Rubin (Johnny Cash, Metallica, System Of A Down) and also features Rage Against The Machine's Brad Wilk, who replaces Bill Ward on drums.
In related news Black Sabbath have also revealed that in advance of their new album release, the band will perform in Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
