Tony Iommi Announces New Solo Album

October 4, 2018

After closing the book on touring with Black Sabbath on February 4th, 2017 in the band's home town of Birmingham, England, guitarist Tony Iommi has announced that he will be working on a new solo album starting in the winter of 2018.

The unnamed project will be Iommi's first solo album since his 2005 record Fused.

While speaking at the Whtley Bay Film Festival, Iommi put out his plans for his new record. "I'm still writing stuff; I've put ideas down on tapes. When all this nice, sunny weather goes and it gets grim, I shall start going in the studio and putting it down,” Iommi said. "My engineer, who I had for everything with me at home, he's just done Judas Priest's album. Now he's finished that, and we'll hopefully start again and put some ideas down. I don't know what it's gonna be yet — whether it'll be an instrumental album. I've been approached by a lot of people to do something with them."
