You're not being Paranoid. This is really happening.

It's been almost 33 years since Ozzy Osbourne first left Black Sabbath, so fans should be positively batty after hearing that all four original members of the band, including their legendary frontman, are reuniting for a 2012 tour.

Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward announced the news today at the Whiskey A-Go-Go in West Hollywood, where they played their first L.A. show 41 years ago.

Ozzy recently told Billboard that new Black Sabbath material wasn't available yet, it was "a very, very strong possibility. It's in the very early stages, so we haven't recorded anything yet."

Rick Rubin is onboard to produce the group's comeback album, which is expected to be ready by next fall. As for the tour, Black Sabbath will for starters headline the Download Festival in Donington Park, England, taking place June 8-10.
