Black Sabbath’s ’13’ Album Streaming a Full Week Ahead of Street Date


Little by little, Black Sabbath have been leaking out their highly-anticipated ’13’ album, but now that leak is a full-on gusher. With the disc due in stores next Tuesday (June 11), the group has decided to let everyone have an advance listen to the collection by streaming it via the iTunes store.

Fans who pre-order either the standard or deluxe editions of the album will have immediate download access to the band’s current single, ‘God Is Dead?,’ which has been quickly climbing the charts. The primary difference between the standard and deluxe editions is the three bonus tracks Black Sabbath tacked on to the deluxe edition. ‘Methademic’ already made its concert debut during the band’s tour of Australia this spring, while ‘Peace of Mind’ and ‘Pariah’ will be fresh to listeners.

The ’13’ album found the band working with acclaimed producer Rick Rubin and utilizing the hard-hitting style of Rage Against the Machine’s Brad Wilk on drums after the group and longtime drummer Bill Ward fell out over a contractual disagreement. The result is a true album-listening experience, with many of the tracks clocking in at over five minutes long.

Black Sabbath will return to the concert stage in North America for a 20-date run that kicks off July 25 in Houston. Look for the band on the road and be sure to pick up ’13’ when it arrives in stores June 11.
