Ozzy Osbourne has confirmed that a new album and tour has been agreed for Black Sabbath.
It had been thought the Birmingham band's last album, 13, released last year and tour might have been their last. The album broke the record for most years between number ones, coming 43 years after their last.
But speaking to Metal Hammer, Osbourne said:
The whole Sabbath experience this time around was great... It was a lot of fun. So we're going to do one more album, and a final tour.
Although no timescale has yet been set the singer said: "It'll be sooner rather than later."

Birmingham rock legend Ozzy Osbourne has revealed he would enjoy returning to reality TV for one final episode of The Osbournes.
The MTV show shot the Black Sabbath star back into the limelight, along with wife Sharon and children Jack and Kelly.
Speaking to Q Magazine, he said the final say over whether a one-off special would be made would rest with "the boss" - Sharon.
I wouldn't mind maybe doing one episode - The Osbournes now, what's happened to us all, that kind of thing, but I don't know that we'd want to do a full series.
It's up to the boss. Mama. The thing is, it was real reality. People would come up to me and go, 'Who writes your scripts?'.
What are you talking about? I watched my kids end up on drugs, I watched my wife nearly die of cancer.
Black Sabbath are topping the bill at an outdoor show in London's Hyde Park this summer - and they hope they will get royal approval.
The veteran rock group is the latest headline act to be announced for the British Summer Time festival, and will play the event's opening night on July 4.
Osbourne reminisced that when he first went to London he was impoverished and "spent the advance I got for the first album on a new pair of shoes and some Brut aftershave".
"Returning almost 50 years on we are doing a bit better for ourselves, so I may even splash out on some new aftershave before taking to the stage at Hyde Park ... We are beyond honoured to be allowed to put on a show and hope that the royals will enjoy it," he added.
Black Sabbath have stormed to the top of the charts for the first time since 1970 with their new album, entitled '13'.
The heavy rock trailblazers have set a new UK chart record for the longest gap between number one albums, overtaking Rod Stewart who set a similar record last month.
The tour will start in London on December 12th before the band finally come home to Birmingham on Friday 20th December when they will play the LG Arena.
