The original line-up have called a press conference in Los Angeles
Black Sabbath are set to make a special announcement next week.
The four original members of the band, Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward, will all be in attendance at the press conference, which will take place on Friday November 11 at 11.11am (PST) in Los Angeles.
The announcement will be made at the Whisky A Go-Go on the Sunset Strip, the same venue where the band made their Los Angeles debut on November 11, 41 years ago. The event will be hosted by Henry Rollins.
Black Sabbath formed in Birmingham in 1968. Original frontman Ozzy Osbourne was fired in 1979 because of his drug and alcohol addiction. He was replaced by the late Ronnie James Dio.
The original line-up reunited in 1997 to headline the Ozzfest festival and released the live album ‘Reunion’ in 1998. The band also entered a recording studio with producer Rick Rubin in 2001, but the sessions came to an end with no material seeing the light of day.
The original line-up have been inactive since, but in 2006 were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
