Like the band @ their music. Have seen em a few times. Could do without the singers political rants on stage. I'm there 4 the music not a political discussion. Singer goes overboard at times with his rants. Shut up and play some music. If I want Chomsky ill stay home and read it. Grrr!

Oh hell yes, I really hope I can see them. I was a huge fan a while back.

Also, who the hell wastes their time and money to go to a bands concert to "rail" on them? Really?

Are u f***ing joking?!?!?! that's y i missed System! their political rants are f***ing NEEDED today, what with ministry gone, who's gonna tell us the sh** people usually shut their ears to. Remember, that spill is STILL pumping out in the ocean, and the debt keeps getting bigger, and wikileaks shows whats really happening out east (genocide). So go listen to your metal music and miss the message in most songs u dolt. now how do u like that for a rant? lmao
And very much agreed Caveman1, Toronto! skip quebec for once, f***in mayhem...

There had better be another announcement though, cause if they don't come to Toronto I will abduct their tour manager and have my way with him.

LMFAO!!!!!! @ triforce

i stopped liking system the moment preppy frat posing white boys were singing "chop suey", AFTER "B.Y.O.B." came out. nvr rlly cared for their newer stuff. 'toxicity' was an amazing album, as was their s/t.

A great living is to be made critizing the very system that made them. Hate capital but love big major label bucks. f*** the police unless your mansions getting broken into or your Mercedes has been keyed. Then they're ok concerts and shows for me are a way to get away from real world problems. A little Motorhead @ Clutch. Don't need to find out what's wrong with the world at a concert. I can keep myself informed in other ways and yes self titled and Toxicity were very good releases

dont label a band by the people who listen to or like them, go by the music its not that hard. to the dude that mentioned a7x and system in the same sentence, the plain difference is one band writes homo music and one doesnt.

system have had their off moments but they have also written some really cool unique music, which is why even dudes like branded, who in my mind is a bit of a purist (no offence man) give them props.

ive yet to see these dudes live and im p***ed off at myself for passing up opportunites looking forward to the chance if they will care to venture this far south :p
