Black Sabbath are to reunite in 2012 with new album and tour
Black Sabbath have announced that they will reunite next year to release a new album and to go on tour.
There was much speculation as to whether or not they would get back together when they announced that they would hold a press conference on 11/11/11 at 11.11am but now they have confirmed that they will release a new album next year, their first in 33 years.
Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward, who are all now in the 60s, will bring the new album out on the road as they go on a worldwide tour as well as a headling spot at the tenth anniversary of Download Festival in the UK.
Guitarist Tony Iommi has said that the reunion is "like putting on an old glove. It's fantastic”.
Butler said in February of this year that a reunion of any nature would never happen.
Their next album will be the first record released since 1978's 'Never Say Die' and it will be produced by Rick Rubin.
