It’s Official: Black Sabbath Plan 2012 Tour & New Album


We told you last week that Black Sabbath were planning a press conference today and we can now confirm that not only has the original lineup reunited, they’re planning a whole lot in 2012.

We heard it first from Rolling Stone, who is covering the event (our invitation must have gotten lost in the mail). Their official account tweeted “It’s official: Black Sabbath are recording a new album with Rick Rubin and touring the world in 2012” just after 2pm this afternoon.

This is exciting news, but I’m pretty sure we all assumed they were getting back together. I mean, who reunites to say they’re not reuniting? Either way, metalheads around the world are either rejoicing or quivering at the thought of geriatrics trying to reignite the metal flame. Comment below and let us know your take on these developments.
