The rock legends are also in the studio with producer Rick Rubin working on an album of new material for release in late 2012. The tracks will be the band’s first album in 33 years since Never Say Die! was released in 1978, right before Osbourne had initially left the band.

The European dates will see the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band and MTV’s “Greatest Metal Band of All Time” perform at the Download Festival in England on June 10. At first, this was the only date listed when the band made the initial announcement of the new tour and album last week.
