We’re getting closer and closer to a new Black Sabbath album, and the latest update involves bassist Geezer Butler.

The band posted a photo (seen below) of an empty stool and a bass guitar where Butler apparently would be setting up shop for the day. If that wasn’t enough, they spelled it out by saying, “Geezer Butler is all set to record some more bass tracks on the new album today.”

Guitarist Tony Iommi recently revealed that while the band does intend on having their next album ready by April, recording is still afoot on the disc. Black Sabbath should be in the home stretch though, as not only do they have a specific time frame for the album release, but they’ve started booking tour dates for 2013, as well.

Meanwhile, Black Sabbath fans will have something to tide them over until the new disc arrives, as the group has announced a Dec. 12 release for their ‘Black Sabbath The Vinyl Collection: 1970-1978. The limited edition box set celebrates the iconic albums of the band’s full original lineup.

Included in the box set (seen below) are full reproductions of the original album releases, remastered from the band’s personal archives on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl. In addition, the poster from ‘Masters of Reality’ and photo insert book from ‘Volume 4′ will be part of the set. And fans can relish in having a 7-inch copy of the group’s debut single ‘Evil Woman,’ backed by the non-album b-side ‘Wicked World.’

Also included as part of the box set is a hardback book featuring the original tour programs from the band’s 1970, 1975, 1976 and 1978 treks and a “Back to Black Sabbath” download voucher good for easy download of the full set.
