Late last year, many System of a Down fans got excited thinking a new album would arrive sometime this year. We haven’t seen anything new from these guys since 2005’s Hypnotize aside from frontman Serj Tankian’s solo efforts. No one can really understand what’s taking them so long, including drummer John Dolmayan who recently revealed the band has at least fifteen “fantastic” songs written.
Over the holiday weekend, bassist Shavo Odadjian shared another SOAD update. stating the album is “not happening” right now. The bassist revealed this news while holding a video Q&A for fans and he was asked about the new album’s arrival.
“I’m waiting for a new album too. It’s not happening. I don’t know. I don’t know when it’s gonna be. Not right now.”
