System of a Down bassist Shavo Odadjian did a Q&A with fans and was asked whether or not the new album was on it’s way. Shavo gave an update, but was not very optimistic on when or even if the album would come out stating, “It’s not happening.”
“I know, I’m waiting for a new album too. It’s not happening, I don’t know. I don’t know when it’s going to be. Not right now.”
System of a Down broke up in 2006 and then returned in 2010 for a world tour run. They had mentioned at the time that they would release a new album. Most recently, the band had revealed that 15 songs had already been written.
I guess we’ll just have to do some more waiting.
