According to Consequence of Sound, Black Sabbath will release their first album in 35 years, titled 13, on June 11.
Produced by the legendary Rick Rubin, 13 reunites the British heavy metal band’s founding members Geezer Butler, Ozzy Osbourne and Tony Iommi for the first studio album since Never Say Die! in 1979. Rage Against The Machine’s Brad Wilk filled in for Black Sabbath’s original drummer Bill Ward.
In addition to CD and vinyl formats, a deluxe double CD will also be available featuring exclusive studio recordings. The Super Deluxe Box Set includes both CD and vinyl versions of 13, the extra studio material, a Black Sabbath documentary on DVD and several photographs and art work of the band.
13 will be released via Vertigo Records in the U.K. and Republic Records in the U.S.
