SABBATH ALBUM UPDATE

The near-complete line up of the original Black Sabbath recently commented on the progress of their new album.

.

Speaking in an interview, the band discussed their first new album together in 33 years, working with producer Rick Rubin, and their recent Download warm-up
gig in Birmingham.

.

Osbourne commented on the album sessions, saying: “We’ve written about 15 songs so far, whether they’ll get on an album [I don’t know]… You just keep on writing. I was trying to [work out]: where would we be now musically if we’d have stayed together? Next year — 2013 — is a good clue of what we’ll call the album.”

.

Speaking on Rubin’s approach to the writing sessions with the band, Geezer Butler said: “He sat us down, put the first album on and said ‘listen to this’, imagine it’s 1969, you’ve just done that, what would you do next?”

.

Iron Man Iommi also discussed the band’s comeback show in Birmingham last month, saying:”It was great. Going through what I’ve gone through over the past year has been like living in a different world — being onstage and to get that [reaction from the fans] is just fantastic, it really boosts you up.”

.

Sabbath’s new album will be released via Vertigo/Universal Republic, hopefully in 2012.
