Well, the August US dates are now over. Sabbath is "resting" until December, when the European dates are scheduled to begin. I don’t know what the guys are doing during this time, but I heard a rumour that this (almost) three month break could be used for recording. That’s not to say it will happen, but it could. Realistically, I think the guys will just rest, maybe dabble with solo stuff. I have no solid information here on this – this is personal speculation based on what I have heard.
