Published Jun 06, 2016While Black Sabbath are just a couple of months away from completing their seemingly career-capping "The End" world tour, former drummer and founding member Bill Ward has revealed he's started up a new band. He'll now be hitting the skins for a project called Day of Errors.
Ward announced the project today (June 6) through his website, noting in a post that the act comprises himself on drums, Joe Amodea on guitar and Nick Diltz on bass. All three will be singing, though it's unclear if that means the members will alternate lead vocal duties.
In addition to the core trio, Day of Errors are being helped out by keyboardist Aron Ward, Bill's son, and percussionist Walter Earl.
The iconic metal musician has not yet explained when Day of Errors will make their live debut, or if they have begun to record new music. For now, all he's revealed is that the act play "loud, hard, with overtures of gut-kicking heavy, heavy parts."
As previously reported, Ward pulled out of the Black Sabbath reunion in 2012, citing an unfair contract offered to him that he felt would compromise his "rights, dignity and respectability as a rock musician." In 2015, he issued a solo LP titled Accountable Beasts.
As for Black Sabbath, the band currently have a number of dates coming up around Europe and North America. This includes a stop at Toronto's Molson Canadian Amphitheatre on August 29. You'll find info on all of the remaining "The End" dates over here.
