HEAVEN & HELL: New Audio Interview With RONNIE JAMES DIO, GEEZER BUTLER Available

MTV's HeadbangersBlog.com recently conducted an interview with HEAVEN & HELL vocalist Ronnie James Dio and bassist Geezer Butler about the creation of the band's "The Devil You Know" album, the demons that once haunted the group, the corruption of politicians, the crumbling economy and their general disinterest in today's metal scene. The entire 25-minute chat is available for streaming below.

Roadrunner Records this week announced the signing of HEAVEN & HELL for the territories of Europe, Australia, New Zealand and South America. The band's long-awaited new album, "The Devil You Know", featuring 10 soon-to-be-classic tracks from the Dio-fronted version of BLACK SABBATH, arrives in North America on April 28 from Rhino for a suggested list price of $18.98 (physical) and $9.99 (digital).

HEAVEN & HELL's new single, "Bible Black", is available for streaming in its entirety below. The track begins with Tony Iommi on acoustic guitar behind Dio's plaintive wail before the rhythm shifts to a menacing stomp for the rest of this dark tale about a book of sinister scriptures. One of the first songs written for the album, Dio says it established a tone for the rest of the LP. "When you start off with a blockbuster like that, it makes the rest of the album so much easier because it gives you a benchmark to measure the other songs against."

"The Devil You Know" track listing:

01. Atom And Evil
02. Fear
03. Bible Black
04. Double The Pain
05. Rock And Roll Angel
06. The Turn Of The Screw
07. Eating The Cannibals
08. Follow The Tears
09. Neverwhere
10. Breaking Into Heaven
