Are There Plans For A New BLACK SABBATH Studio Album?

Producer Rick Rubin (SLAYER, AUDIOSLAVE, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, SYSTEM OF A DOWN) recently told Sunday Herald Associate Editor Alan Taylor that he was in Worcestershire, U.K. to work on a new BLACK SABBATH album. No further information is currently available.

As previously reported, BLACK SABBATH guitarist Tomy Iommi is currently working with ex-DEEP PURPLE vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes on material for a new studio album, tentatively due next year on Sanctuary Records. Joining Iommi and Hughes during the recording sessions for the upcoming CD is ex-JOHN MELLENCAMP drummer Kenny Aronoff.

With regards to the possibility of a new BLACK SABBATH album, Iommi recently told Rolling Stone magazine, "I'd like to think that we'll be doing another album. With SABBATH, things just happen. We weren't supposed to be doing the last Ozzfest, but we did."
