New album with Dio Part II

A quick follow up. An interview surfaced on Komodo today where Ronnie Dio was asked about the new studio album with Black Sabbath Heaven & Hell. Ronnie confirms it too in the interview with this:

Q: There has been talk of maybe a new studio album from Heaven & Hell next year. Is that something that could happen?
Dio: Yes, we have decided to do that. When it would be, I couldn’t tell you. This is the last part of the tour after about 9 months on the road. It’s time for us to take a little breather. When the time is right we will get together and start writing for the next album, but as far as the release date goes it will probably be later next year.

There you have it, lads. It’s looking promising for the 13 year overdue (when released) followup to Forbidden! :)
There’s a lot of other stuff in that interview too about how the tour has been going, crowds, what Dio thinks of the shows, and all that. It’s a good read; thanks to Blabbermouth for the link.
