After announcing their reunion on 11/11/11 and letting fans know that a new album is in the works, heavy metal legends Black Sabbath have revealed their first run of what will hopefully be many tour dates in 2012.

On May 18, Black Sabbath will make their triumphant return to the stage in Moscow, Russia, at Olimpiski [the Olympic Stadium built for the 1980 Summer Olympics].

The Black Sabbath festival dates currently run through the end of June with stops at the Download Festival in the UK, Hellfest in France, Azkena Rock Festival in Spain, and Gods of Metal in Italy.

Sabbath promise that this is only the beginning, and they have worldwide plans to take the band to places they’ve never played before and places they haven’t been in over 30 years.

The new album, being produced by the legendary Rick Rubin, is slated for a fall of 2012 release.
