New SOAD Record to Drop by Band's Next LA Performance
At the end of this Monday's (July 29) performance at LA's Hollywood Bowl, System of a Down drummer John Dolmayan made a seemingly big announcement, saying that the next time SOAD is back in town will be to promote a new studio record. As you can see in the video below, right after performing "Sugar" as the last song of the set, Dolmayan took the mic and shouted, "Next time we come back here, we'll have a new f--king album!" Whether the stickman's prediction was realistic or simply caused by an adrenaline rush from the show yet remains to be seen, but it's definitely certain that the new SOAD album is one of the most anticipated releases in the metal world at the moment. As previously reported, tensions recently rose among the SOAD ranks after bassist Shavo Odadjian's unexpected online outburst. The bassist blamed singer Serj Tankian for "slowing down" the group, going far enough to even consider hiring a replacement vocalist. The band subsequently posted an official statement saying that the rest of the four-piece doesn't share Odadjian's views. As for Tankian, the singer simply stated that the new SOAD album is "not something he can do right now." The latest SOAD studio effort, "Hypnotize," saw its release back in November 2005 via American Recordings as the fifth record in the group's opus. With over 320,000 units shipped in the US within the first week, it debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
