Tony Iommi fans rejoice as the Black Sabbath co-founder and guitarist announced there’s new music coming.
In a video Iommi shared on his YouTube channel titled ‘A 2024 New Year’s Message,’ the rocker said:
“Hello all, I hope you’ve had a great Christmas. We certainly have here. It’s been good fun. Plenty of food and drink. Marvellous, absolutely marvelous.
“Last year when I did my message, I did say we’d have a box set coming out. Well, now I’ve been informed that it’ll be out in May… it’s been held up with paperwork and legal stuff. But anyway, it’s coming out in May now, if you’re interested, and I hope you are.”
“But it’s been an interesting year again this year, great, great fun. A lot of different things happening. I was working with the Birmingham Royal Ballet with Carlos Acosta on doing the Black Sabbath ballet, which was absolutely marvellous. I mean, they’ve done such a brilliant job. And the dancers are fantastic. Just all the people involved in it were just so into it, and it was great fun.”
Iommi noted he’s looking forward to the plans he has for this new year, he added:
“I am writing and doing plenty of stuff and it’s sounding really good. I’m very happy with it. I might use some orchestration, I might not. So we’ll see how it goes.”
The box set Iommi mentioned will feature Tony Martin, The Eternal Idol, along with Headless Cross and Tyr. Watch his New Year’s video message below.
