The hatchet has largely been buried between the members of veteran hard rock band Black Sabbath. After over three decades of waiting, fans of this groundbreaking band will finally get to hear new music from the band this Summer. And in support of the new album, titled 13, Black Sabbath—Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, and Geezer Butler—will hit the road in support of the album with a full North American tour. Drummer Bill Ward will be replaced on the band’s upcoming tour with a replacement drummer. Tickets for the band’s upcoming tour will be available Friday, May 3rd.
