Black Sabbath's win for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance at the 2014 Grammy Awards has inspired the metal legends to return to the recording studio.

According to an article posted Jan. 27 at, the "Paranoid" hitmakers, who received the honor at the Grammys held Jan. 26 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles for their "13" track “God Is Dead," had previously cast doubt on the possibility of any future Sabbath recording projects, but the win has reinvigorated the ageing British rockers.

In response to a Rolling Stone magazine query about future Sabbath studio work, frontman Ozzy Osbourne says, “We're going back on the road," the singer told Rolling Stone. "We haven't really spoken about it beyond that. I'm down for it."

"Absolutely," added guitarist Tony Iommi.

The reunited lineup will kick off their North American tour March 31 in Brooklyn, N.Y. at Barclay's Centre, which includes a 10-city tour Canadian trek slated to commence April 3 in Halifax, NS at Metro Centre.

Sabbath made their full studio album catalog from 1970-1978 digitally available on iTunes last week for the first time in Canada and the U.S. in a remastered collection titled, "The Complete Studio Albums 1970-1978."
