There's been so much talk about a new System of a Down record that's becoming difficult to know exactly what's going on. Fortunately, we've got Serj here to set us straight! Serj has made it pretty known that he's in no rush to make a new System record, and only went further to say the …

Serj Tankian: party pooper 🙁

System Of A Down frontman Serj Tankian has moved to dispel rumours that the band are finally working on a new studio album.

“We really appreciate [the fact that the fans want a new studio album from us], but we have to make a record when we think it’s time, not anyone else,” commented the singer in a Reddit Ask Me Anything session yesterday.

“No, that is not true [that we have made plans to begin work on a new album],” he responded to one question. “A quick scan of press online will show that we have not yet agreed on a timetable for another record due to its time commitments.”

The internet went into a frenzy yesterday following John Dolmayan’s on-stage comment at a gig in LA that “Next time we come back here, we’ll have a new fucking album!” Presumably they won’t be coming back to LA for a long time, then. Sad faces.

Back in May, bassist Shavo Odadjian suggested that it was only Serj that was serving as a stumbling block towards a new SOAD album.

“It’s Serj who doesn’t want to do a new album!!!!,” he ranted on his official Facebook page. “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 to..

“Sorry, folks!!! We’re trying to get a new album out, it’s 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 someone we have to beg to be a part of System!!

“So with that in mind, what do you guys [think] we should do? Just remember, he’s been holding us back for seven years so far. Wanna wait another 4-5 years? Or shall we release a record without Serj? You tell us.

SOAD are back! Um, again!

“I don’t want to make a record without him… but if he’s not down? Should the three 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 who’s just as good, if not better? PLUS new System songs and tours???? Please give me your opinion, people!!! Is System better with no singer or someone who is excited to be our new singer?? You decide.,. ’cause I’m confused!!!

Meanwhile, the band make their return to the UK this August as a part of Reading and Leeds 2013, contributing to what we’ve all pretty much agreed is the best Reading and Leeds lineup for fucking ages.

Friday night I had one of the coolest metal moments of my metal nerd life. Summer Slaughter kicked off in San Francisco and The Ocean put out a Facebook post saying you can negotiate with them for some merch and a CD. What do they want in return you ask? Booze. I coordinated with Robin Staps to …
