49 years after their inception in 1968, iconic English rock band Black Sabbath have confirmed the band’s split.

Led by lead singer Ozzy Osbourne, the band was known for their occult themes and horrifying lyrics.

On Tuesday, the band posted a picture of the read “Black Sabbath. 1968 – 2017” and captioned it, “#TheEnd”.

Their last concert was back in February, where they performed at Birmingham’s Genting Arena, wrapping up a career where they sold over 70 million records worldwide.

It’s not the end for Osbourne though, who isn’t planning to retire from music yet.

‘I’ll be continuing my own musical thing. My wife is good at telling me partial information, but I know I’m not hanging my boots up for a while,’ he told Ultimate Classic Rock in an interview.

Guitarist Tony Iommi also added that while he was just done with touring, they might still make music in the future.

He said: “I don’t think we’ve ruled anything out, apart from me not wanting to tour any more. Who knows? We may do something. We haven’t spoken about it. We haven’t talked about anything, really – but I’m sure something can happen somewhere.”
