Black Sabbath Reunion: It`s Official; New Album And World Tour In 2012; 31 Minute Press Conference Video

The original lineup of the legendary heavy metal band Black Sabbath - Ozzy Osbourne (vocals), Tony Iommi (guitar), Geezer Butler (bass) and Bill Ward (drums) - has reunited and will release a brand new album in 2012. The group's first studio effort in 33 years will be produced by Rick Rubin.A  world tour will follow, including an appearance at the U.K.'s Downloadfestival on June 10th, 2012.

A three-and-a-half-minute reunion-announcement video can be seen below.

Osbourne told last month that a reunion of the original Black Sabbath lineup was a "very, very strong possibility." He added, "It's in the very early stages, so we haven't recorded anything yet. If it works out, it'll work out. If it doesn't, I'll keep doing my thing."

Speculation about a reunion was fueled later that month when Ozzy skipped the Hollywood premiere of the documentary about his life, "God Bless Ozzy Osbourne". Both his son Jack and daughter Kelly hinted at the time that their dad was "doing something that is very, very exciting."
