Black Sabbath called it quits in 2017 after one final show in Birmingham. Drummer Bill Ward has stated he wants to do one more album as a proper farewell considering he wasn't involved, and while Ozzy Osbourne agrees, he's certainly not interested in doing any more shows.
Now guitarist Tony Iommi has taken more of a neutral stance in an interview with My Planet Rocks, stating that you can never say never with Black Sabbath.
"You can never say never, can you? We've known in this band you can never say, 'That's never gonna happen again,' because every time we said that, it has. We never thought we'd get back with Ozzy the early years. We never thought we'd get back with Dio again; we did. We never thought we'd have Ian Gillan in the band, but we did. So you just can't say it's never gonna happen."
Iommi also said that Black Sabbath is absolutely done touring, but one-off shows could still happen.
"We haven't stopped it. It's just the major touring that has come to a stop; I wouldn't wanna do 18-month tours again. But that doesn't say we wouldn't do any one-off stuff."
Iommi recently released a new song called "Scent Of Dark" that sounds extremely Black Sabbath-ey (obviously). If we could just get a whole album of those riffs with Ward on drums, I think we'd be all set!
