Black Sabbath “Absolutely” Down to Record Another Album


This week, Black Sabbath announced that they’ll be hitting the road once again to promote a new album.

Ozzy Osbourne expressed optimism to Rolling Stone about recording a new album following a number of forthcoming tour dates.

“We’re going back on the road,” Ozzy told Rolling Stone. “We haven’t really spoken about it beyond that. I’m down for it,” to which Tony Iommi chimed in: “Absolutely.”

Fresh off their Grammy win for Best Metal Performance (“God Is Dead?”),

 Geezer Butler went on to say, “We didn't want to go out on tour and do the same set as we've been doing for 30 years” and it was only natural for the group to get back to the stage.

This comes not long after the group’s tour for 13, the trio’s first album together since 1979’s Never Say Die.

After extending the North American leg of their 2013 tour and wrapping up two days before Christmas, it comes as a surprise that the group would want to tour again so soon.

Yet Ozzy says he, Geezer and Tony have adopted an “it’s now or never” attitude, and Sabbath has plans for more shows in the U.S., Canada and Europe in March.
