News about the upcoming IOMMI/Hughes album

Tony Iommi is said to be making great progress with his new album which features Glenn Hughes on vocals and Kenny Aronoff on drums. They've cut 13 tracks, all produced by Bob Marlette, who worked on Tony's first solo album in 2000 and the Sabbath "Reunion" album in 1998. Compared to the songs on the recently released "The DEP Sessions", the new material is "more riff-oriented," Iommi told Rolling Stone.  He also promised that, like its impromptu predecessor, the songs would "come together very, very quick." The album is now at the mixing stage and discussions are taking place regarding the release date, which will be later this year. Tony is also hoping to be able to take this album out live.
