Modern metal legends System of a Down missed their self-imposed mandate to release new music in 2017. At the time, Serj Tankian gave an interview with reasons why the band hasn’t advanced work on their highly anticipated new album, which would be their sixth if it ever happens. Their last new music was the double albums Mezmerize & Hypnotize (both Columbia Records) in 2005. The band just posted a cryptic message to their Instagram hinting at a return of some kind. Check it out!
