Black Sabbath are busy touring and promoting their latest album 13
, which is the first studio album to feature singer Ozzy Osbourne since 1978.
Now guitarist Toni Iommi says that he would be open to record another album, as long as his ongoing battle with cancer permits it.
Iommi told CT.com: "It’s a question that’s been asked a few times. I don’t really have an answer. Because of my treatments and stuff I can’t commit to doing another two years or anything like that. I have to play it as it comes now."
When it comes to playing live Iommi said: "I think it’s better than it was 40 years ago."
In fact, the band is even toying with the idea of playing 13 in full as part of the show.
"I think the songs fit in great with the old stuff, and it's also great to have new songs to fit in, because we haven't had any for so many years. As far as the whole album: we haven't tried that yet. We are playing four songs off the album, but I'd be up for doing the whole thing."
As far as another Black Sabbath album goes, Iommi says we just have to wait and see: "If the rest of the year goes well, then we'll look at it and see if it's possible to do another album. It would be very nice to."
