Black Sabbath Video and TV
Black Sabbath will premiere online the video for “God Is Dead,” the first single off their new album, 13, on June 17th.
Ozzy Osbourne says the song was inspired by a visit to office where he saw a magazine and on it it said, “‘God Is Dead,’ and I suddenly thought about September 11th, 2001 and all these terrorist things and religion and how many people have died in the name of religion. When you think about the tragedy that’s happened throughout time, it just came in my head. You’d think by now that their God would have stopped people dying in the name of, so I just starting thinking that people must be thinking, ‘Where is God? God is dead’ and it just hit me.”
13, the band’s first studio album with Ozzy in 35 years, will be out next Tuesday, June 11th.
Sabbath will celebrate the release with a performance on NBC’s Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Monday/Tuesday, June 10th, at 12:35 a.m. ET.
