Well hot-diggity, they weren’t lying. After using that horrible word that generally implies immediate death sentence – ‘hiatus’ – back in 2006, fast-talking Armenican dudes System of a Down are indeed reuniting. They had the following message for fans, posted on their website:

Hello All,

We are excited to announce that System will be playing some dates together in 2011.

We also want to thank you for your loyalty and support, not only to System Of A Down, but to all of our solo efforts as well. We have no master plan of sorts – we are playing these shows simply because we want to play together again as a band and for you, our amazing fans.

The list of dates and on-sale information for these shows is below.

We look forward to seeing all of you!

Peace,

System Of A Down
