Black Sabbath launched their world tour on April 20th with two shows in Auckland, NZ. They are now in Australia for performances in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide, before heading to Tokyo for the first ever Ozzfest in Japan on May 12th.

Along the overseas tour, Black Sabbath (Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler) are previewing music from their forthcoming 13. On the new album, due out June 11th, the band that defined heavy metal picks up immediately where they left off with eight sprawling songs (five of them are over eight minutes) that possess every ounce of the maniacal vitality of the Grammy-winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees’ trailblazing work in the ’70s. Songs such as End of the Beginning, Loner, Dear Father and Age of Reason reinforce 13’s testament to the enduring relevance of Black Sabbath’s long-running reign. Produced by Rick Rubin (seven-time Grammy winner, two of those as Producer of the Year), 13 will be released on Vertigo (worldwide) and Vertigo/Republic in the U.S.

Here’s some critical feedback from Black Sabbath’s opening night:

New Zealand Herald (4-21-13): Black Sabbath brought together fans young and old…in horn-throwing, fist-pumping fashion…[Ozzy] jumped and stomped about the stage with passion and energy to burn. Could he still cut it? Yes, he could…Black Sabbath’s spark lit up the arena.” (4-21-13): “Black Sabbath still the kings…on a night when Sabbath proved just why they belong in the unique pantheon of true rock greats…you realize that catching Sabbath at this stage in their long career was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience.”
