SYSTEM OF A DOWN Wants To Release A New Album But SERJ TANKIAN Is Holding Them Back Says Bassist

System of A Down bassist Shavo Odadjian posted on his official Facebook page (just a few hours ago) that the band wants to release a new album but front man Serj Tankian is holding them back, stating:

"ok..... Ill come clean.. Its not us(meaning Daron,John Or Shavo!! Its Sej, who doesn' want to do a new album!!!! so please stop harassing us about it!!! We are just waiting for SERJ! Now He might hate me for exposing the truth but i Had too.. Sorry folks!!! we're trying to get a new album out, its just not passing Serj's RULES! . Kinda funny, since we started the band and now he's holding us back!! I think we should should release another album again??? As for me.. I'm ready to release one with someone who wants to be the singer of SYSTEM. not soeome we have to beg to be a part of SYSTEM!! So with that in mind, what do you guys w should do? Just remember, Hes been holding us back for 7 years so far.. wanna wait another $-5 years? or shall we release a record without Serj? u tell us?????"

"I dont want to make a record without him... but if he's not down? should the 3 of us just sit and wait?? Not cool!!!!!!!! i want the fans from all over the world including Brazil to tell us what they think.

No System? or System with with a new singer whos just as good if not better? PLUS new System songs and tours???? please give me ur opinion people!!! is SYSTEM better with no singer or someone who is excited to be our new singer?? you decide.. cause im confused!!!"

"no diss to Serj.. If he wants to be in the band then he's welcome but if he's not? what do you expect us 3 to do.?? we really want anorther System Record! wish Serj was down but if hes not, then im going ahead and making a System record without him!!! im furious that he let us down like this, but we gotta do something to keep this great band alive!!! agreed????????"

It looks like something is happening in the System of a Down camp. Could the band release a new album without Serj Tankian? Would that even work? (knowing how crazy SOAD fans can be). It's all up to speculation right now, but Shavo is definitely pushing for a full System of A Down comeback.

  1. im am a huge fan! And yes i want another albumb so bad. but serj's voice cant be copied and he is what gives system it's signature sound. but if hes really being as bad as you say then maybe it is time to go for a new singer but if you do he better be like the best singer alive because thats what i consider serj to be

  2. i dont believe, it must be a hack
