[News] Black Sabbath will carry on without drummer Bill Ward

After Bill Ward' statement about leaving the band, Black Sabbath have responded with a promise to continue without him.

On their Facebook page, you can read the following:

"We were saddened to hear yesterday via Facebook that Bill declined publicly to participate in our current Black Sabbath plans...we have no choice but to continue recording without him although our door is always open... We are still in the UK with Tony. Writing and recording the new album and on a roll... See you at Download!!!

- Tony, Ozzy and Geezer"

Tonny Iomma was also recently diagnosed with lymphome, so the band had to move their recording sessions to the UK, where he can receive proper treatments.
