According to System of a Down bassist Shavo Odadjian, the band apparently have already written some new songs. There’s a good chance they’ll be heading back into the studio to record a new album to follow both Mesmerize and Hypnotize, both of which came out ten years ago in 2005.

It’s not entirely news. Vocalist Serj Tankian had also voiced the idea of a new album, as well as drummer John Dolmayan in a 2014 interview.

It’s crazy to think that after such a long hiatus the band is finally getting back in the groove of things, but a new album isn’t entirely out of the realm of possibility considering System of a Down already have several concert dates in Europe and South America.

It will be nice to hear some new System material, however. There just aren’t enough bands out there doing politically-charged material anymore. It’s all just triangles and Illuminati.
