During a recent appearance on X107.5 Las Vegas, System of a Down drummer John Dolmayan took time to speak about the band’s current progress towards a new album and the fact that they haven’t released a new album in ~12 years. You can listen to the interview throough the video link down below and read some quotes right here:

“So we’ve been in the studio for the past year and we’ve put together about fifteen songs so far that I think match or beat anything we’ve done in the past… And I don’t make those kind of claims without having something to back it up. We’re better than we’ve ever been. We’re tighter than we’ve ever been.

We know what we’re doing and the songs are there. It’s a matter of getting together and putting aside whatever differences, or whatever problems people have—which don’t seen to surface when we’re together, by the way. It’s almost like there’s two System Of A Down‘s for me.”
