|Dio Confirms Heaven and Hell CD Plans|
Dio: Yes, we have decided to do that. When it would be, I couldn't tell you. This is the last part of the tour after about 9 months on the road. It's time for us to take a little breather. When the time is right we will get together and start writing for the next album, but as far as the release date goes it will probably be later next year.

I want to keep a hand in on that one. I love this band that I play with as well, and it's another career, another career with a lot of great music as well.- more from this interview which includes an apology to Def Leppard and Vivian Campbell
