System of a Down Confirm New Album Is Coming
There is good news to be had this week. Here is another band from our Artists Who Disappeared Who Need To Come Back list is preparing a comeback album. First it was The Shins, now it’s System of a Down!
“I want everyone on board and feeling good about it, that’s what we’re trying to accomplish right now,” drummer John Dolmayan told Kerrang. “There’s a tremendous amount of pressure on us, though, because it’s been 11 years – at least 12 by the time it comes out.”
The metal band currently has about 15 tracks that they feel are “album-worthy.” So it looks like we may be getting the album sometime in 2017. The last project we heard was their double album Hypnotize and Mesmerize in 2005.
“Our playing ability is better than it ever has been and we’re trying new things. We’re not trying to make Toxicity Part II, just because it was by far our biggest album. This needs to be something for a new generation of SOAD fans, so everyone can see we’re not resting on our laurels. I’m not gonna put my name on an album I’m not 100% proud of.”
