The album artwork and track listing for 13 — the first new studio album in 35 years from the original Black Sabbath — have now been revealed. In classic Sabbath fashion, the album, which is due out June 11, features eight songs and clocks in at just under 60 minutes.
Tony Iommi, who is knee-deep into recording Black's Sabbath's new album, 13, is already looking beyond that project to something new — a riff-based album with Queen guitarist Brian May. The idea behind the project, as reported by RollingStone.com this morning, is that fans would be able "build their own songs" around Iommi's and May's unused material.
In a recently posted video from last month's 2013 Winter NAMM Show, That Metal Show co-host Eddie Trunk -- who also roasted Dee Snider at Guitar World's Rock & Roll Roast -- interviewed Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler at the Samson/Zoom/Hartke booth.
Throughout the decades, Phish have made a habit of performing "out of the blue" covers during their fan-favorite New Year's Eve Shows. In the past, they've performed complete albums by The Beatles (the White Album) and Pink Floyd (Dark Side).
Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi posted an end-of-year update on his official website. Iommi, who has been battling cancer since earlier this year, assured fans that the band are hard at work on their new album and that they'll be touring as much as possible in 2013.
