In 1989 Tony Iommi and Ian Gillan re-recorded the classic Deep Purple track 'Smoke on The Water' to raise money for those affected by the Leninakan earthquake that struck Armenia in 1988 and in October of last year both Tony and Ian travelled to Armenia to see how the funds raised had helped the local community.
They visited a music school only to find it was theonly location not to have been rebuilt twenty years after the earthquake had struck.
Tony and Ian will now be heading back into the studio, joined by Jon and Nicko to record a new track to raise money to rebuild the Armenian music school.
Bassist Jason Newsted (Metallica, Flotsam & Jetsam, Voivod) and guitarist Mikko 'Linde' Lindström (H.I.M.), have added their parts to 'Out Of My Mind'.
