Black Sabbath Unleash ‘End of the Beginning’ Video as ’13’ Heads Toward No. 1 Debut
Coinciding with the release of ‘13’ this week (June 11), Black Sabbath are offering up a ton of extras for fans who patiently waited the 35 years it took original members Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler to release a new full-length album. In addition to the one-of-a-kind Town Hall they hosted in New York City on release day, they also just revealed the full music video companion to their appearance on the season finale of the TV show ‘CSI.’
Back in May, Sabbath premiered their new track ‘End of the Beginning’ on the CBS show, performing the song in front of a small crowd as part of a scene for the episode. With only a portion of the performance shown on ‘CSI,’ the band has just unleashed the full performance as the video for ‘End of the Beginning’ (watch above).
Meanwhile, according to Billboard, industry insiders are already forecasting that first week sales for Sabbath’s ‘13’ will land the disc at No. 1 on the next Billboard 200 chart with a projected 120,000 units sold in its first week out. The actual chart won’t be finalized until June 19 but it appears as though the return of Black Sabbath is a huge success.
