Serj Strikes Down New System of a Down Album Reports
Bassist Shavo Odadjian recently released and then removed a barrage of outbursts on his Facebook page, claiming the rest of SOAD wanted to get into the studio but frontman Tankian was preventing it.
Earlier this week drummer John Dolmayan told an audience in Los Angeles: "Next time we come back here we'll have a new f**king album!" But in a Reddit Ask Me Anything session, Tankian last night stated nothing was underway.
Q: Is it true that there's a new System of a Down record in the making? Tankian: No, that is not true. A quick scan of press online will show that we have not yet agreed on a timetable for another record due to its time commitments.
Q: Can you tell us how much truth there is to Shavo's controversial claim that there has been no new SOAD album "because Serj doesn't want to", and your feelings about the statement coming from a fellow band member and friend? Tankian: Shavo's comments have been redacted by the author :) The truth is above in my first answer.
