Last year Shavo Odadjian took to Facebook to express his displeasure about the lack of recording a new album with System Of A Down, and now John Dolmayan has chosen to speak about the situation in a new interview.
Loudwire.com conducted the interview with Dolmayan, who jokes the band is "going to become The Eagles" and not record an album for 15 years. Excerpts from the interview follow.
Loudwire: You seem like the member who is the most gung-ho about making a new System record. Do you feel that’s the case?
I’m not sure if I’m the member who wants it the most. It’s probably true about [me] being the most vocal about wanting it. For me, there’s no ego involved. I don’t write songs, so I’m not worried about who’s going to write the song. I’m just ready. You just give me the canvas so I can paint on it, that’s how I look at it. So it’s easier for me, but look, there’s a lot of emotions involved with being an artist; there’s a lot of emotions involved to being a songwriter; and there’s a lot of fear involved with anything that you haven’t done in a long time. To go in together and work together? We’re different people. 2005 was the last time we were in the studio together. That’s what, nine years ago?
Loudwire: It’s weird to think that.
But it’s true. We’re turning into the fucking Eagles now. 15 years are gonna go by before we make a new album. [Laughs] For me, it’s irritating. But I do the best I can to understand that there’s a lot to be worked through in order to make something great and if it isn’t fantastic, there’s no reason for us to do it.
