System Of A Down To Officially Announce Reunion Next Week

System of a Down

So, I was told by someone who once worked with the band last week that “something’s definitely coming soon with System.” I just didn’t know it would be this soon.

According to Blabbermouth, System of a Down much-hyped reunion will be announced on Monday, November 29, with details of a comeback tour being revealed for fans. System’s also expected to make a number of European festival appearances in 2011, including a rumored headlining slot at the U.K.’s Download Festival.

I mean, the writing has been on the wall for months now, and there have been signs of movement within System of a Down, who’ve been on ice since 2006. I guess the money offers were too fucking good to turn down. I wonder if System will return with a stint on Mayhem festival? Or maybe Ozzfest will come back stronger than it went out: System of a Down co-headlining with Ozzy back in ’06. Who the hell knows? But all I can say is, count on this announcement definitely going down next week. Count on it. I love that System has a mole.

The System rumors started not too long ago, when bassist Shavo Odadjian Twitted about System, and that sent everyone into a tizzy. A week or so ago, the rumors started again when some French radio host blogged System of a Down would be performing at the Palais Omnisports de Paris Bercy in Paris, France, on June 6, 2011.

Interestingly enough, Odadjian recently told Hustler magazine — of all places — that SOAD went on an “indefinite break” to save the band from splitting up permanently.

“We won a Grammy and we had two number one records. We were making a lot of loot [money]. Then some people within the group of four brothers started seeing things differently … and their actions made the reactions of others pretty unbrotherly-like. All of a sudden band members are having problems financially … [and] fighting about, ‘I want my style of music to be this and that.’ I love them. They’re my brothers, but I couldn’t see my brothers digging into each other’s pockets and killing each other’s artistic creativity.”
