It’s been a Long time that we’ve been listening to System of a Down.
All the tracks, now turned classics, always drew a thought in our minds, that ‘When are they coming up with a New Album ?’
This kept recurring again and again and again, and meanwhile many new listeners who probably started listening to SOAD with Chopsuey or Toxicity or BYOB or Soldier Side kept adding up with the same question.
Where is the new album?
After waiting in the queue for 12 years, now finally, out of the blue, it has been announced by drummer John Dolmayan through Kerrang ! that they are finally coming up with 15 new songs.
Here’s what John Dolmayan said,
“I want everyone on board and feeling good about it, that’s what we’re trying to accomplish right now. There’s a tremendous amount of pressure on us, though, because it’s been 11 years – at least 12 by the time it comes out. Our playing ability is better than it ever has been and we’re trying new things. We’re not trying to make ‘Toxicity’ Part II, just because it was by far our biggest album. This needs to be something for a new generation of SOAD fans, so everyone can see we’re not resting on our laurels.”
So every listener now can possibly have a happy breath as the wait is almost over now.
