System of a Down
drummer John Dolmayan
once again addressed the band's lack of progress on the new album, noting that the issues from the past are still looming over the four-piece."You know, there's still some drama from the past that we've got to figure out, and the funny thing is that we get onstage, we have a great time,"
he told the Pulse of Radio
. "The last couple of tours have probably been the most fun we've ever had, but I'm a very honest guy."You know, there's problems in this band. But they're problems that can be figured out and we're in the process of doing that."
Touching on the new record matter, the drummer added (via Blabbermouth
), "We probably would have been in the studio making an album already, but for personal reasons, one of our members can't be in the studio right now. It's a positive thing, but that's all I can say on that right now."
As reported, Dolmayan previously stated that he's "not happy with where the band is right now."
John has also launched a new cover project Three Grey Men
, kicking off a fundraiser to support an album and a tour. More info on that here
