BLACK SABBATH RECORDING CONTINUES; VINYL BOX SET UNVEILED

11/16/2012

Three original members of Black Sabbath continue to work on their first album together in 34 years, with bassist Geezer Butler recording his bass tracks on Thursday (November 15th). A post at the band's Facebook page featured a picture of an empty stool and a bass guitar in the studio, with the caption reading, "Geezer Butler is all set to record some more bass tracks on the new album today."

Butler, singer Ozzy Osbourne and guitarist Tony Iommi began working on the album earlier this year in London so that Iommi could be close to his doctors after being diagnosed with cancer. Recording has now moved to the Los Angeles area, with the album on track to be released next April and tour dates starting to surface.

Founding drummer Bill Ward is sitting the sessions and all live shows out, with Tommy Clufetos taking over behind the kit.

Meanwhile, Sabbath has also announced a December 12th release date for Black Sabbath -- The Vinyl Collection: 1970 - 1978.

The limited edition box set will contain all eight studio albums recorded by the original lineup on 180-gram vinyl with new reproductions of the artwork, the Live At Last concert album, a seven-inch copy of the group's debut single "Evil Woman," plus a hardback book featuring the original tour programs from the band's 1970, 1975, 1976 and 1978 treks.
