While speaking with Kerrang!, System of a Down drummer John Dolmayan confirmed that the band is, in fact, working on a new album! He had the following to say of this:
We’ve been working on a new album for the last six months and there’s about 15 songs that I think are album-worthy. We don’t know what’s happening in terms of release, it’s still not 100% as far as plans go.
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.
