Black Sabbath Announcement Coming Next Week
This, I am surmising from their official Web site, which all of a sudden has been updated with the numbers “11.11.11.” That’s November 11, people.
On that day, at 11:11 a.m., all four original members of the heavy metal icons — Ozzy Osbourne, guitarist Tony Iommi, bassist Geezer Butler and drummer Bill Ward — will attend a special announcement ceremony, hosted by former Black Flag frontman Henry Rollins.
The announcement will be made at the Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood, California.
As you no doubt know by now, there have been rumblings of a Black Sabbath reunion — largely fueled by the members themselves.
Osbourne first said that it was happening, and Iommi later said that the band had gotten together to rehearse.
You don’t just get together to rehearse for shits and giggles — with no motherfucking point to it.
Expect next week to hear that Black Sabbath are back, that there will be some sort of tour, and that an EP or some kind of smaller scaled digital offering will be made available soon.
