The band will play a concert in the show attended by some of the characters. The performance in CSI will debut the first single, "End of the Beginning," from the group's new album.

"When we first heard that Black Sabbath was interested in premiering a song on CSI  from their first studio album in 35 years, we were all really excited," said the show's executive producer, Don McGill, in a release. "So many of us are longtime fans."   

The group had planned to release its 19th album in fall 2012, but rescheduled to June 11, 2013.
