Black Sabbath co-founder Tony Iommi has confirmed that a box set featuring the five Black Sabbath albums with Tony Martin as lead singer will be released in 2023.

In his New Year’s message Tony said, “We’re gonna have the Tony Martin box set and Cozy Powell and Neil Murray. I’m looking forward to that, because a lot of people have asked about that, which is great. They wanted to see when it’s coming out. And we’ve done ’em in succession, really, with these albums. You can’t just bring everything out together; it has to come out in times. So we’ve had all the original SABBATH stuff come out, box sets, and then we’ve got the Ronnie stuff and then the next thing will be the Tony Martin and then my solo stuff. So it’s gonna be busy again”.

Martin was the Black Sabbath singer on 1987’s ‘The Eternal Idol’, 1989’s ‘Headless Cross’, 1990’s ‘Tyr’, 1994’s ‘Cross Purposes’ and 1995’s ‘Forbidden’.

Tony replaced Glenn Hughes who sang on 1986’s ‘Seventh Star’ and Ian Gillan who sang lead on 1983’s ‘Born Again’.

Martin was the second longest serving Black Sabbath singer after Ozzy Osbourne. In 2022 he released his solo album ‘Thorns’.
