Tony Iommi has speculated that the original lineup of Black Sabbath might reunite for a new album and tour next year if the members of the band, including Ozzy Osbourne, are up to it.

At this point in time, there is nothing confirmed for a Black Sabbath reunion, but it appears things might be heading in that direction.”

“We’re really looking forward to it and I think the stuff we’ve been writing is really good,” Iommi said in a statement. “It’s all been very hush-hush. Ozzy’s been the worst at trying to hold it back. He’s doing a lot of TV and he’s being asked stuff about a reunion and he’s going ‘Well, I never say never.’”

It’s interesting to note that about six months ago, Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler, put out a press release saying a reunion would never happen.

“I would like to make it clear, because of mounting speculation and rumors, that there will be definitely no reunion of all four original members of Black Sabbath,” Butler wrote. “Whether to record an album or to tour.”

The Ozzy-led lineup of Sabbath hasn’t toured since 2005, and their last album was 1978′s Never Say Die. They attempted to cut a new album with Rick Rubin in 2001, but the sessions fell apart and Osbourne turned his attention to his solo career. The Ronnie James Dio lineup reunited under the moniker Heaven & Hell in 2006 but split four years later, after Dio passed away.
