Black Sabbath Will Release Last Album & Embark On Final Tour

Ozzy Osbourne has just announced some big news for Black Sabbath. The frontman plans to head back into the studio with Black Sabbath in 2015 for one more album before embarking on one final tour. Earlier this year, it was originally understood that Black Sabbath’s last gig would be their July 4th gig at London’s Hyde Park.

In a recent interview with Metal Hammer, Ozzy stated, “The whole Sabbath experience this time around was great. We all made friends, we didn’t fuck around, we all knew that we had a job to do, and we did it. It was a lot of fun. So we’re going to do one more album, and a final tour.” Ozzy also revealed, “I believe [producer] Rick Rubin is going to do it with us again.”
