Could it be true?
Could System of a Down be heading in the direction of a new record?
According to Serj Tankian’s latest interview with Rolling Stone, mayhaps.
“There has been talk, and we are going to play this [upcoming U.S.] tour, come back and we’re going to see where we are,” said Serj.
“If we have songs that work for System, if I have them and [guitarist] Daron [Malakian] has them. The openness is there to work together, but we haven’t made any particular plans that we can announce.”
Serj admitted he has a few ditties he’s been working on that may fit a new System disc, “but I’m not sure until the time comes where I can actually play them for the guys and see if it’s something that vibes off them.”
He continued: “Right now, I’m actually focusing on a film score. It’s actually a really cool score, and it’s for a film based on, again, the genocide. That’s all I’m dealing with right now. It’s called ‘1915.’ It’s a very interesting drama that’s actually shot in Los Angeles at the Los Angeles Theater, a very old and distinguished theater. It’s a really, really interesting psychological thriller, modern story. It deals with denial and the psychological impacts of a genocide rather than the physical aspects of it.”
