...but at least we have this bit of positive news!!!
"The original lineup of metal titans Black Sabbath-- Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, and Geezer Butler (minus drummer Bill Ward, who left the band last year)-- are releasing their first studio album together since 1978's Never Say Die!. Their new album 13 is due out in June via Vertigo, and it was produced by Rick Rubin.
On 13, the band is filled out by drummer Brad Wilk from Rage Against the Machine. The band's reunion was announced last year when they were revealed as Lollapalooza headliners.
This spring, they'll tour New Zealand, Australia, and Japan. More dates will be announced later this year."
