Brad Wilk Replaces Bill Ward On Sabbath Reunion

After ample speculation that former Ozzy drummer Tommy Clufetos would take over Bill Ward’s drum throne in the recently reunited Black Sabbath, we have learned that the honor instead went to former Rage Against The Machine/Audioslave drummer Brad Wilk. The album, titled 13, is scheduled to be released this coming June.

This appears to close the book on Ward’s dramatic departure from the reunion in February 2012, when Sabbath’s founding drummer protested the lack of a “signable contract.”
