Black Sabbath have confirmed that their new album '13' will be released on June 10. Scroll down to see a new behind-the-scenes clip showing the band making the album now.

The album is the first original band members Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler have recorded together since 1978's 'Never Say Die!'. The Birmingham rock legends made the album primarily in Los Angeles with renowned producer Rick Rubin (Johnny Cash, Metallica, System Of A Down) and features Rage Against The Machine's Brad Wilk, who replaces original sticksman Bill Ward on drums.

'13' will be available in a number of different formats, including the Standard CD album release, a deluxe double CD album (which includes a second disc of bonus material), 12" heavyweight vinyl (180g) in a gatefold sleeve plus a super-deluxe box set containing a Black Sabbath - The Reunion documentary.

In advance of the new album, Black Sabbath will tour Australia, New Zealand and play a show at Ozzfest in Japan. Additional tour plans are expected to be announced in the coming days.

Meanwhile, it was revealed last week that Tony Iommi has written the song that Armenia will use in this year's Eurovision Song Contest. Iommi will not perform at the annual competition, which this year is taking place in Sweden, but he has written the song 'Lonely Planet' for Armenian band Dorians.
