Ever since they reunited this summer, we’ve known that Black Sabbath have also been working on 15 new songs for an upcoming album. Today we learned that the band plans to release the album next spring.

‘Black Sabbath is currently recording their first new studio album in more than 33 years, helmed by seven-time Grammy winning producer, Rick Rubin,” read a post on their website. “The album is due for release in April 2013.”

The album’s release will coincide with the band’s first tour of Australia in nearly 40 years. They will play four dates between Apr. 25 and May 4, with cities and venues listed below. Pre-sale for tickets will begin Friday, Nov. 2 at 9:00AM, with sale to the general public beginning Thursday, Nov. 8 at noon. Full details can be found at Live Nation Australia’s website.

But people looking to travel for the shows should take into account that all times listed for ticket sales are local. Those in America wanting the best seats will have to purchase their tickets late at night, which, when you think about it, is kind of fitting.
