Black Sabbath set to release new studio album in June

- January 13th, 2013

Will it be lucky No. 13 for Black Sabbath?

The metal gods are set to release a brand new studio album, “13,” in June.

The effort will have original members Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler, with Rage Against the Machine drummer Brad Wilk replacing Bill Ward (who dropped out last year).

It will be produced by seven-time Grammy winner Rick Rubin (Johnny Cash, Beastie Boys, Metallica) and will be released in June. It’s their first album since 1978′s “Never Say Die!”

Work on the record was slowed due to Iommi’s cancer battle, but it is hoped he will be well enough to rejoin his bandmates for a number of 2013 shows.

    Without Bill Ward, it’s not Sabbath. Plain and Simple.

    Mob Rules didn’t have Bill Ward (or Ozzy for that matter) and it’s still one of Sabbath’s best. I wish it was the four original guys but I’m still looking forward to hearing this big time.

    Come on Bill

    They should have got Vinny Appice, a far superior drummer to the Rage guy.

    I respect Iommi and Butler but Ozzy is a joke. I smell a cash grab and an excuse to tour.

    I’m really looking forward to the record but I wish they’d avoided Rick Rubin….his productions always sound too clean. I’d glad they got rid of Bill Ward as he was always the band’s weak point….he sounded like he was drumming on shoe boxes with the shoes still in them.
