Here’s the latest on new System of a Down music
System of a Down drummer John Dolmayan has some good news for fans looking forward to new tunes from the band. Speaking with Kerrang!, Dolmayan explained that System of a Down has “been working on a new album for the last sixth months.”
“There’s about 15 songs that I think are album-worthy,” he said. “We don’t know what’s happening in terms of release, it’s still not 100% as far as plans go. I want everyone on board and feeling good about it, that’s what we’re trying to accomplish right now.”
The upcoming release would be System of a Down’s follow up to 2005’s “Hypnotize.” Dolmayan believes the group’s upcoming release “needs to be something for a new generation of…fans… I’m not gonna put my name on an album I’m not 100 (percent) proud of.”
But, hold your horses. This doesn’t mean we’re positively going to see new System music, as it doesn’t seem frontman Serj Tankian hasn’t given the green light. Speaking in a new interview with LA Weekly, the singer said that System of a Down is simply “going to get together and see if that’s going to be System music or not.” That does not, er, sound very promising.
