The American-Armenian heavy metal band System Of A Down has revealed that a new album will not be recorded for the time being. Lead guitarist and second vocalist of the band, Daron Malakian, has singled Serj Tankian out as the reason no new album has been released yet.

Serj Tankian, frontman and lead vocalist of System Of A Down, has posted his thoughts concerning a new release in a statement he published yesterday. In an attempt to clarify all the things about the release of a new album he concludes that ”we couldn’t see eye to eye on all these points we decided to put aside the idea of a record altogether for the time being.”

However, the band has announced that they are going to perform at East Coast this fall, while they are also going to headline Force Fest in Mexico and Aftershock Festival, which takes place between 13 and 14 October 2018.

System of a Down

System Of A Down is an Armenian-American heavy metal band that formed in 1994. They managed a rapid rise to fame in the late 90s. They initially supported legendary bands such as Metallica and Slayer, but also produced original and capturing metal music. Their big breakthrough came in 2001 with the release of their album Toxicity. The album sold more than 12 million copies worldwide and produced several hits such as ‘Chop Suey’, ‘Toxocity’ and ‘Aerials’.

System went on to produce another three albums in the early 2000s. The band subsequently went on a hiatus between 2006 and 2010 to pursue their individual musical interests. They re-united in 2010 and have been touring the world since then. No new material has been produced by the band since 2005 despite several circulating rumours throughout the years.
