Is there possibly some new SYSTEM OF A DOWN music on the way in 2023?
Serj Tankian was asked in a recent interview with Kyle Meredith if there were any plans for SYSTEM OF A DOWN in the immediate future. Serj responded: “As of now, we haven’t talked about anything. We will be making an announcement about something next year that I can’t really tell you about. So there is that. But further than that, I can’t really say.”
In a recent talk with Guitar World, SYSTEM OF A DOWN guitarist Daron Malakian was asked about the chances of more new music from the band in the near future. He responded: “I never say never, but at the same time, I’m not expecting to do any more with SYSTEM OF A DOWN right away or immediately after [these two songs]. It really does seem like our fans like these new songs. That’s important to me.”
He continued: “We’ve added two new songs to the SYSTEM catalog ( 2020’s “Protect The Land” and “Genocidal Humanoidz“) that are on the level with everything else that we’ve put out and our fans have accepted it that way, which means a lot to me. That’s kinda where we’re gonna leave it for now. If more happens later on, then we’ll talk about that, but for now I will continue doing what I’m doing and everyone else will just continue what they’re doing. It’s all cool though, I’m really pleased with the response we got.”
SYSTEM OF A DOWN has only recorded two new songs in the last 17 years, 2020’s “Protect The Land” and “Genocidal Humanoidz“, with all proceeds from the new tracks going to support humanitarian efforts in the band’s homeland of Armenia.
