System of a Down is working on a new album. 15 songs are ready !!
In a new interview with John Dolmayan for the 1644 edition of Kerrang! Magazine, an excellent update on the new System of a Down album was confirmed. Check out the excerpt:
“We’ve been working on a new album for the last six months and there are about 15 songs that I think are worthy of being on an album. There is tremendous pressure on us, because we are 11 or 12 years old and we have not released anything. But we have not yet scheduled to launch”.
“Our ability to play is better than ever and we are trying new things. We’re not making a new ‘Toxicity’ just because it was by far our biggest album. The new work must mean something to a new generation of System of a Down fans, so everyone can see that we’re not resting on our laurels. I’m not going to put my name on an album I’m not 100% proud of.”
