The band, who have reformed to record their first album since 1978, will premiere new song ‘End Of The Beginning’ on the season finale of the US TV show when it airs on May 15. Fans of the crime drama can get a sneak preview of Ozzy Osbourne and his band as they film their scenes in the video below.
Also in the video, the show’s star Ted Danson explains that the season finale will see his character DB Russell and a trio of suspect serial killers hold a meeting backstage at a Black Sabbath gig. “It’s my first Black Sabbath concert, how cool is that?” says Danson.
Talking about his own cameo on the show, Osbourne explains: “I’m not an actor. When you see it on TV it’s all done but when you’re filming there’s a lot of stuff going on. It’s been a long time but the wait has been well worth it and I’m really pleased with the outcome. It’s good fun and it’s a good way of telling people that we’re back together, you know?”
‘End Of The Beginning’ is the first track from ’13’, which will be released on June 10. It is the first album 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 it features Rage Against The Machine’s Brad Wilk, who replaces original sticksman Bill Ward on drums.
