“Black Sabbath 11.11.11″ What does it mean?

black sabbath 111111 reunion announcement thrash hits

How cryptic. If anyone knows what this photo from the Black Sabbath Facebook could refer to, please let us know.

Ho ho ho! Obviously it’s the long-awaited reunion news, right? Maybe a festival announcement? Download Festival 2012 headliner? Sonisphere Festival 2012 headliner? Ooh, err.

It’s probably just another re-issue though. Or it’s the Cancer Bats cover band.

**UPDATE** Noisecreep, AOL’s far-better-than-you-might-think metal blog, have revealed that they’ve been invited to the Black Sabbath press conference next Friday, and revealed the following info:

According to the email [invitation], all four original members of the heavy metal godfathers – Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward – will all be in attendance. Former Black Flag frontman Henry Rollins will be hosting the private event.

Now far be it for us to piss on the PR parade, but does anyone else think that this trend of trying to teaser-trail news stories by officially announcing the date when you plan on making official announcements about things has just gotten a little bit too silly and out of hand? Black Sabbath, just bloody well announce your reformation and get on with it.

    Black Sabbath are announcing their reunion… to play Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. They’re all clubbing together on the PC edition. QED.
