While on tour, System Of A Down vocalist Serj Tankian revealed that their group might release a new album after they finish their road shows.
In a report by Rolling Stone, Tankian revealed that the band is expected to regroup after the tour and see where the band is currently sitting at.
Following the 2005 record “Hypnotize,” Tankian and guitarist Daron Malakian is expected to work on the record but final words are set to be announced yet.
They, however, assured fans that they would be the first to know of the album even before the media releases anything about it.
“There has been talk, and we are going to play this tour, come back and we’re going to see where we are,” Tankian said.
“If we have songs that work for System, if I have them and Malakian has them.
The openness is there to work together, but we haven’t made any particular plans that we can announce.” “They will be the first to know.
Fans will know before the press knows, I assure you.” While on tour, the 47-year-old vocalist also claimed in the interview that they are commemorating the 100 th year anniversary of the Armenian genocide that took a lot of lives.
The Armenian-American artist that the unfortunate event that happened before became the inspiration for their current System Of A Down tour.
“This is a recommitment and expansion of some of the work that we’ve been doing with the Armenian genocide for years,” Tankian said.
“The whole “Souls” concept became a tour, and it’s something that we all believe in because we’re all children of survivors of the genocide.
It’s important for the recognition of the genocide as an end result, as well as attaining justice.”
