Black Sabbath Say ’13’ May Not Be Their Last Album

Written by Sarah Bella on June 8, 2013

Their latest album has only just been released but reformed metal legends Black Sabbath have already dispelled the rumour that 13 is to be the last from the outfit, with both Ozzy Osbourne and bassist Geezer Butler saying that a follow-up record is not entirely out of the question.

In an interview with Billboard, Butler states that he was happy to get back together with Osbourne and guitarist Tony Iommi to make one final album, but when called on about his use of the word “final”, Butler said, “Well, I guess you should never say never. It could be, though. We’ll see how this album goes, see what happens.”

The Prince of Darkness himself echoed the sentiment:

“Let’s put it this way; it’s taken us 35 years to do this one. So if there’s gonna be (another) album there’s gonna be an album but I don’t want to say if there’s going to be a follow-up. I wouldn’t mind doing another Sabbath album with them, though.”

13 is the first album Osbourne has made with Sabbath since 1978’s Never Say Die, so one can’t fault the man for being cautious. Both members say the response to their new material has been phenomenal, with Ozzy saying he’s “blown away” by it. “I mean, 45 years down the road and we’ve got a really great album to put out – talk about icing on the cake! It’s unbelievable.”

13, which was produced by Rick Rubin and features Rage Against The Machine‘s Brad Wilk replacing Bill Ward on drums, was released yesterday and can be streamed in full on iTunes. Sabbath kick off a massive North American tour next month, but there’s no news yet on whether they’ll be getting cocaine flown in by private jet like they did in the 70s and 80s.
