Veteran British rock band Black Sabbath announced on Friday they are reuniting in their original four man line-up for their first new album in 33 years and a 2012 world tour.

Black Sabbath is pulling out all the stops on the band's first album with Osbourne on vocals since 1978's Never Say Die! The band will be debuting their new single "End of the Beginning" during "CSI" on the shows May 15 season finale. In a press release revealing the news, show executive producer Don McGill said,  "When we first heard that Black Sabbath was interested in premiering a song on CSI from their first studio album in 35 years, we were all really excited." It's an interesting combination, which will reportedly feature actors Ted Danson and Marc Vann attending a Black Sabbath concert during the season finale episode. It definitely sounds like "CSI" is excited to be able to premiere the new single. "So many of us are longtime fans," said McGill. "And seeing as the album is titled 13 and this is the finale of CSI's Season 13, it seemed like the perfect match. We couldn't be more thrilled."
