The rumors were true, Black Sabbath is getting back together. Original band members Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler, Bill Ward, and Tony Iommi just announced the return of Black Sabbath with a new studio album (their first in 33 years) and a 2012 fall tour kicking off after they headline the Download Festival in June. Rick Rubin will be producing the album.
The heavy metal band made the announcement during an 11-11-11 press conference held at the Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood. They also released a video featuring clips of the band from years ago, along with the basic details of the reunion.
