Ozzy Osbourne: "I'm up for another Black Sabbath album and tour"

Ozzy Osbourne has revealed that there is a possibility for a new Black Sabbath album.

The band took part in a press conference at this years Sweden Rock Festival in Sölvesborg on Friday [June 6]. The group discussed their plans for the future, and hinted that a new album may be in the works.

"We haven't really discussed it. It is possible there's gonna be another album," said Osbourne. "But we haven't really sat down and decided what we're gonna do yet. We just wanna finish this tour and then we'll see."

In May, Tony Iommi said that the band's Hyde Park gig this July could be their last ever. He admitted that he and his bandmates currently have no plans to play live after the festival and that, combined with his ill health, could mark the last time Black Sabbath fans get to see the band perform live.

Commenting on Iommi's remarks, Osbourne said: "If it's goodbye, we're ending it on a high note…But I'm up for another Black Sabbath album and tour. If we can, great. If not, I'll just carry on doing my own thing."
