Black Sabbath Debut New Song, ‘Loner,’ Live in Australia

Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on

Black Sabbath fans down under are scoring big as the band continues their trek through Australia. Sabbath debuted another new tune titled ‘Loner’ during their gig last night (May 1) in Melbourne, marking the song’s world premiere.

The fan-filmed footage above of Black Sabbath performing ‘Loner’ is reminiscent of old school Black Sabbath, rich with classic Tony Iommi riffs. Initial feedback on the new song based on the amateur footage covers a broad spectrum  from “best song on the album yet,” and “eargasmic riff by Iommi” to fans lamenting over Ozzy Osbourne’s lackluster vocals. In all fairness to Ozzy, this isn’t professional footage and should only serve as a teaser to the full, studio recording of the track.

With anticipation building for the release of their new disc ‘13,’ this is now the fourth track that the band has shared. They kicked things off with the official first single ‘God Is Dead?’ and they’ve now played three additional new songs live – ‘End of the Beginning,’ on the opening night of their tour, the deluxe edition bonus track ‘Methademic’ at a show on April 29, and now ‘Loner’ can be added to that list.

‘13’ will be available on June 11 in several formats including a deluxe edition. Their full 20-date North American tour was recently announced and will kick off in Houston, Texas on July 24.
