VIDEO: Black Sabbath returns to the studio preview

While Black Sabbath continue working on their new album, “13”, the band is sharing a preview of some behind-the-scenes video on the project.

The group will issue a full video on Wednesday and, in advance, they’ve offered up a 30-second preview clip of what fans can expect.

“The last time we were in the studio, all together, was 1978,” says guitarist Tony Iommi, referring to the band’s “Never Say Die” album.

“If you try to live up to the expectations of the past album, then you just fail dismally,” explains bassist Geezer Butler.

“I want it to sound current but yet still have that Sabbath vibe, ya know,” adds Ozzy Osbourne. “This Black Sabbath album is quite possibly the most important album of my career.”

The original Sabbath lineup held a press conference in 2011 to announce the project, but drummer Bill Ward has since chosen to sit out the reunion record due to contractual issues. The group brought in Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine to fill the chair in Ward’s absence.

Song titles revealed to date include "End of the Beginning", "Age of Reason" and “God Is Dead”.

In advance of the CD's June release, Sabbath will head to New Zealand, Australia and Japan for live performances starting in April.
