In an era where band breakups and reunions are on six-month cycles, the last thing I need clogging my inbox is another lead that nothing’s changed for System of a Down. Frontman Serj Tankian addressed the rumors, claiming nothing has changed since their “indefinite hiatus” announcement:
“We always have offers to play, from festivals and stuff, but we have not decided to do anything as of yet. We’re in touch. We talk. We call it an indefinite hiatus, and that’s how we still look at it. Nothing’s really changed.”
The rumors started with bassist Shavo Odadjian’s misinterpreted tweets earlier this month.
Tankian will release a live CD/DVD set, Elect The Dead Symphony, on March 9 and is currently recording his next solo album, tentatively titled Music Without Borders.
