Black Sabbath Announce Plans To Release Back Catalog On Vinyl
NME reports that Black Sabbath announced they they will release remastered versions of their back catalog on vinyl.
A box set of all nine albums, called The Vinyl Collection: 1970-1978, will be released on November 13. The set will feature posters, inserts, a hardback book with all of the band’s 1970s tour programs and a seven-inch vinyl of their debut single “Evil Woman” and non-album B-side “Wicked World”.
The band are currently working on a new album that they will release in April of next year. They have finished six songs and are hoping the final album will have fifteen. They are working on the album without original drummer Bill Ward.
Ward issued a statement in May that said he would not be a part of any Black Sabbath shows from this summer, after he claimed he was unhappy with the contract he was offered to work on the new album and tour. The band played the Download Festival and a small show at Birmingham’s O2 Academy as well as headlining Lollapalooza in Chicago in August. They will play shows in Australia next year, their first since 1974.
