Tony Iommi Reveals Future Plans With Former Vocalist Tony Martin

 

Ahead of the Australian leg of Black Sabbath's final world tour, lead guitarist Tony Iommi has opened up about his future post-Sabbath in an exclusive interview with theMusic, where he revealed hopes of reuniting with former frontman Tony Martin to record new music, in addition to the re-issues of some of their classic material. 

Tony Iommi confirmed that re-releases of Headless Cross and TYR are just around the corner. 
"We've held back on the reissues of those albums because of the current Sabbath thing with [current frontman Ozzy Osbourne], but they will certainly be happening," Iommi said.

"...I'd like to do a couple of new tracks for those releases with Tony Martin. I’ll also be looking at working on Cross Purposes (1994) and Forbidden (1995)."

Iommi's comments come on the back of Martin announcing on his Facebook in January that the two had reconnected for the first time in 15 years and plan to work together. Tony Iommi and Tony Martin both were among the musicians who attended the unveiling ceremony for a plaque honoring legendary drummer Cozy Powell, organized by Rossella Amadori on January 7 in Cirencester, England.

Martin took to his Facebook page after the event to write: "Well, what a great day. I attended the unveiling of Cozy Powell's memorial plaque in his hometown of Cirencester, along with Brian May, Neil Murray and Tony Iommi... And, to my surprise, [I] was greeted by Tony Iommi VERY warmly. It's the first conversation of any length I have had with him in 15 years! And it turns out we may well be working together soon!"
