According to a post from Lambgoat, new System Of A Down material is on the way. The band has already been stirring recently, announcing upcoming 2017 live performances at Download in June and Rock Werchter in July, but now it appears an actual album will arrive rather than just reunion shows.

According to Lambogat, System Of A Down drummer John Dolmayan is quoted as saying:

"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. Our playing ability is better than it ever has been and we're trying new things. We're not trying to make 'Toxicity' Part II, just because it was by far our biggest album. This needs to be something for a new generation of SOAD fans, so everyone can see we're not resting on our laurels."

As usual, the recently solo-focused Serj isn't quite on the same page as everyone else however, as just this week he said this an interview with LA Weekly:

"We're going to get together and see if that's going to be System music or not. And who the fuck knows? If it is, great, and if it's not, then great."

There appears to be some question as to whether any of this music is actually going to be a SOAD album and when its coming, but for now we at least now songs of some variety are actively being worked on. Stay tuned for more album and tour date info as it becomes available.

I'd love to hear a new system of a down album at last.
But whether those guys can finally make it after 11 years remains to be seen.
