Black Sabbath have announced their new album will be titled '13.'

The record – expected to drop in June – will be the first since 1978's 'Never Say Die!' to feature three of the quartet's original line-up.

Frontman Ozzy Osbourne will be joined by Tony Iommi and Geezer Buttler, although drummer Bill Ward will not be making an appearance.

Rage Against The Machine's Brad Wilk replaced him on the sticks as the 'Paranoid' rockers joined award-winning producer Rick Rubin in the studio.

Bill wasn't part of the band's reunion appearance at Download Festival last summer because of a contract dispute, and Sabbath's guitarist doesn't expect him to return anytime soon.

In November Tony, 64, told 'The Blairing Out' TV show: ''We'll always have a heart for Bill, but I think it's gone past that now, because it's gone on so long I don't see that happening at the moment.''

Although a complete Black Sabbath reunion is no longer on the cards, the remaining members will be on the road in Australia and New Zealand this spring.

There were fears the band's reunion would be affected by Tony's cancer diagnosis last year but he has responded well to treatments and his bandmates decided to relocate recording session for the album to the UK from Los Angeles for the sake of the guitarist's health.
