Black Sabbath Announce 13 Release Date

Black Sabbath have confirmed that their new album, 13, is set for release in the U.S. on June 11 and worldwide on June 10. The new album will be issued on CD, 180-gram vinyl and in a limited edition set with an extra CD of special features.

In addition to the CD, 12" and deluxe CD, a Super Deluxe box set will also be released. That will include both CDs, the vinyl, a behind the scenes DVD, 13 photos of the band, a download card and a handwritten lyric sheet.

The new album was produced by Rick Rubin, who says it was an honor to work with the heavy metal legends:

"Getting to come to work every day and hearing Black Sabbath play," he said. "It stimulates something in me, just like when I was 14 years old . . . That same thing gets turned on, and it's a really good feeling."
