Black Sabbath 'Far Too Busy' to Think About New Album, Iommi Explains
Although they've noted being "absolutely down for it," metal icons Black Sabbath still seem to be far from making a new studio record.

In the latest official website post, guitarist Tony Iommi noted that the band is way too busy touring to focus on the "13" follow-up.

"Well the dust has settled on the Grammys now, great to win another one but what a palaver," the guitarist stated. "As the East Coast is three hours ahead the televised part begins at 5 p.m. so you're leaving the hotel at lunchtime, all dolled up and ready for the red carpet! It was good though, plenty of interest in the album still and endless questions about what we're doing next."

Tony then touched on the matter of new material, adding, "Well it's shows in the US, Canada, and Europe, so far too busy with that to be thinking about more recording."

2013 marked a very successful year for Black Sabbath, as the band topped the charts with their comeback record "13," ultimately bagging a Best Metal Performance Grammy at this year's ceremony.
