Heavy metal titans ready first new studio album in 35 years
By Alex Baker
The current lineup for the Sabs consists of founding members Ozzy Osborne (vocals), Tomy Iommi (guitar) and Geezer Butlet (bass). Founding drummer Bill Ward has been rather acrimoniously excluded from the latest round of gigs and other activities the band has engaged in.
The album will be released worldwide by Vertigo Records. Vertigo was Sabbath’s original label back in the late Sixties, when they first came bubbling up from industrial Birmingham, like some ominous omen that the curtain had fallen on flower power.
Prior to the release of 13 the band will be taking a tour of New Zealand, Australia, and Japan.
