Because of the war [in Ukraine], it’s sort of stopped some of the parts coming through. But we’re almost there. In another couple of weeks, I think I’ll be ready to go in and start work in there, which I’m really looking forward to. writing another album.”
The guitarist also wished his fans well and hinted at a possible live performance in the future.
“Anyway, happy new year to you all and I hope to see you sometime on tour, whether it’s playing or a talks thing. Thanks for all your support over the years, I really appreciate it,” Iommi said.
