With BLACK SABBATH's 2016 THE END tour launch now just a week away, comes news about a new special limited edition CD — “The End” (at left) — to be sold exclusively at shows on the band's massive worldwide final tour.
Featuring original artwork by Shepard Fairey/Obey Giant, the CD is comprised of eight previously unreleased tracks: four songs are outtakes from BLACK SABBATH's worldwide #1, Grammy Award-winning album “13” and four live songs from the band's critically acclaimed 13 World Tour.

Tracks 1-4 were recorded at Shangri La Studios in Malibu, CA and produced by Rick Rubin, mixed by Andrew Scheps at Punkerpad West and recorded by Greg Fidelman. Tracks 5-8 were recorded and engineered by Greg Price and mastered by Robert Vosgien at Capitol Studios Mastering.

For those who can't wait for THE END tour to hit their city, the band has released a behind the scenes preview from their Los Angeles rehearsals. Set to debut Friday, January 15 at Blacksabbath.com and via the band's social media, the clip was teased via a short clip Wednesday, January 13.
