BLACK SABBATH continue to tease with information about their anxiously-awaited reunion album, 13, due out In June. In a newly-posted interview excerpt with guitarist Tony Iommi he says: "I think as far as the anger and the youthful feel that we had all those years ago, that we had on the early albums, I think a lot of it is going to be on this album. I don't know much happy stuff."
Black Sabbath's first album in 35 years to feature singer Ozzy Osbourne, bassist Geezer Butler, and Iommi (along with RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE drummer Brad Wilk) was recorded primarily in Los Angeles and was produced by Rick Rubin (SLAYER, METALLICA). The album will be released by Vertigo (worldwide) and Vertigo/Republic in North America on June 13th.
