Ozzy Osbourne just made headlines with the announcement that he went into an 18 month drug and alcohol relapse, but the band isn’t shy to admit that they once “spent more on cocaine than the studio.”
Black Sabbath has recently finished their album 13 with Rage Against The Machine drummer Brad Wilk and producer Rick Rubin. The band hadn’t worked together in 33 years and Rubin said that there was a “little trepidation.”
“Once they started making music they felt like the band again,” continued Rubin.
13 will be release on June 10th. Black Sabbath have announced a brief 2013 tour after the release with a few dates in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
