SOAD: 'If Everyone Gets Music for Free, No One Will Be Able to Create'
In a recent Reddit AMA, System of a Down drummer John Dolmayan discussed his thoughts on file sharing and piracy. Dolmayan was asked by Reddit user empw;

"Any thoughts on digital distribution? I would think with an album titled 'Steal This Album' you'd be all for it, and piracy as well."

To which the drummer responded:

"The name of the album was ironic. If everyone gets it for free, no one will be able to create."

He also addressed rumors that System of a Down was breaking up, stating that this was not the case. However, the drummer admitted that the group had no plans to release a new album as of yet.

Dolmayan is currently working on a covers album project with James Hazley. Under the monicker of These Grey Men, the pair are rearranging tracks by the likes of David Bowie, Radiohead and Outkast. The record is being funded through Kickstarter. You can check out the pledge here.
