System of a Down North American Tour

(Gibson) System of a Down have announced that they will play their first shows in North America in five years. So far, the band have revealed a seven-date trek that begins May 10 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Gogol Bordello will open each show.

Last fall, SOAD said they would be reuniting for 2011 shows their first since going on hiatus in 2006. The band already have a bunch of European festival appearances scheduled for this summer. There's no word on if the band have plans to record a new album anytime soon.

Previously, bassist Shavo Odadjian told The Pulse of Radio that he never thought the band was permanently finished. "We're brothers, man, we'll take bullets for each other," he said. "So it's like, you kind of miss each other after a while and you, one guy makes the first move, then another starts making phone calls... this is a juggernaut, man. System of a Down is my lifeline. It'll never go away. We could not make a record for 10 years that's not gonna happen, but I'm just saying we could and we'll come back strong." more on this story
