While Geezer Butler thinks another new Black Sabbath album would be seen as "a failure" if it didn't live up to 13 artistically and commercially, Tony Iommi hasn't completely ruled it out. Just not now.

Sabbath has been on the road supporting 13 for almost a year and have more dates scheduled for Canada and Europe through June. For Iommi, who is continuing treatment for cancer, that's more than enough.

Tony wrote on his website:

Well the dust has settled on the Grammy’s now, great to win another one but what a palaver. As the East Coast is three hours ahead the televised part begins at 5pm so you're leaving the hotel at lunchtime, all dolled up and ready for the red carpet! It was good though, plenty of interest in the album still and endless questions about what we’re doing next. Well it’s shows in the US, Canada, and Europe, so far too busy with that to be thinking about more recording.

Black Sabbath have a show at Brooklyn's Barclay Center on March 30 followed by a trek across Canada in April, an appearance at the Hollywood Bowl on April 25 and the UAE and Europe from May 28 to June 28.
