In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian had some words to offer in regards to the current status of the band. From the sounds of it, ideas are being tossed around which may very well lead to a long awaited new album. Here’s what he had to say:
I’ve written a bunch of rock songs. We’ll see where they end up. I leave that vague on purpose because I don’t know what’s going to happen with them. Whether they become System or solo or whatever, we’ll see. Time will tell. And I’m waiting for a couple of friends of mine who have films that just got financing, so I’m waiting for them to shoot their film so I can start working on the soundtracks.
We’re communicating and trying to see if we can bring our material together. There’s definitely a lot of communication going on, a lot of back and forth. I can’t make a statement in terms of whether we’re going to have a record or not, because we haven’t gone into the studio and done it. But there’s definitely communication going on, songs being played to each other and all that stuff, so it’s good. We’ll see what happens.”
I think it would be great to create something brand new in a new direction. It would be very exciting, but everyone’s got to be on board, on the same page, and it’s got to be done in a way so that everyone is happy. If we can do that, we’ll do it.
