Black Sabbath Guitarist Announces 2023 Comeback


As reported by Ultimate-Guitar, Tony Iommi announced he’s got a new album in the works and that he’s getting ready to get into the studio to record it and we are all ready to see what this legend has in store for all of us as he is ready to hit the studio.

This was all stated by Tony in a newly-released New Years’ Message video. In the video, he stated how he is not only ready to make new music, but he has been heavy at writing new songs.

He said: “It’s been a good year for me – in parts anyway. I’ve been writing and recording; I’m having a new studio built, which I’m really pleased about. Well, actually, the studio is built, and it’s almost ready to go… In another couple of weeks, I think I’ll be ready to go in and start work in there, which I’m really looking forward to — writing another album.”

Recently, Toni Iommi has also had some new music come out recently, namely the two songs he recorded with his ex-Sabbath bandmate Ozzy Osbourne for The Prince of Darkness’ latest solo album, “Patient Number 9”.

Toni had this to say about those projects: “I’ve done two tracks for Ozzy’s album, which I really enjoyed doing. I wrote it at home and sent it to him, and he liked it. And I played on another track, and got a Grammy nomination for it, which was very pleasing. So we’ll see what happens; if we do get a Grammy in February. We’ll see.”

Toni then also added a little more in his video message to what some could look forward to with collecting material.

He said: “And then, in 2023, of course, we’re gonna have the Tony Martin box set, and Cozy Powell [drums] and Neil Murray [bass]. I’m looking forward to that because a lot of people have asked about it, which is great… And we’ve done [Black Sabbath re-releases] in succession, really. You can’t just bring everything out together; it has to come out at times.”

On top of that, he also dropped some words about Ronnie James Dio Material: “So we’ve had all the original Sabbath stuff come out, the box sets, and then we’ve got the Ronnie [James Dio] stuff, and then the next thing will be the Tony Martin and then my solo stuff. So it’s gonna be busy again. But it’s great. And it’s nice to be doing the interviews and talking about what we did and all the rest of stuff.”
