System Of A Down bassist Shavo Odadjia has hinted that the rockers may be reuniting this year, reports Nme.com.

The band have not been active since 2006 but Odadjia posted a message on his Twitter page suggesting that a comeback may be on the cards.

"Are u guys ready for System???" he wrote.

Rumours of a System Of A Down reunion have abound at various points since they went on hiatus.

Frontman Serj Tankian embarked on a solo career. He released his first solo album, "Elect The Dead", in 2007 while Odadjian recorded with members of the Wu-Tang Clan and launched a new online music initiative. Meanwhile, guitarist Daron Malakian started a new band called Scars On Broadway, also featuring System drummer John Dolmayan.

Last November three of the band members joined Deftones on stage together in Hollywood for a benefit gig for Deftones bassist Chi Cheng, who is currently hospitalised.

    Please, no, music is as bad enough as it is at the moment. Time for some better reunions than this.
    yobobwhatsup
    Its gotta happen sooner or later (hopefully sooner)... Serj's solo stuff was a solid below average and Scars on Broadway only had one good song (3005). They've GOT to get back together.

    I'll be so excited if they get back together... especially with how absolutely god-awful Scars On Broadway is. Serj's solo stuff is alright, but nowhere near as enjoyable as SOAD. Woo!

    Whoa there, chief! Let's stick to the topic at hand and not say anything silly... SOAD is a fantastic, entertaining, original band. Tool is something entirely different. Everyone has a right to his/her opinion and all, but your opinion sucks.

    A front page news based on a Twitter post? Haha how desperate people are for System reunion (Well, I know I am...)

    I was expecting this Spoke to Serj in 2007 and he said it would probably be this year

    I'm very dissapointed with the way this article was handled. I was the happiest I have been in months for about 10 seconds until i read the other tweet. Oh well, I'll wait as long as necessary for the best mainstream band in the past 10 or so years.

    This or Soundgarden better not be Andy Copping's big announcement for Download. They're good bands, but not the "biggest news story of 2010".

    I used to be a mega huge SOAD fan but honestly, I don't know if I'll be able to get back into their stuff, I hope I'm wrong but we'll see, anyone else?

    HELL. FUCKING. YES. Don't get my hopes up, Shavo. This had better be true.

I saw Oasis live and they were awesome, but they are past it as a band and I'm glad Noel is solo, he's a great songwriter, even if he and his brother are tossers, Liam to a MASSIVE extent...
    Comparing SOAD to oasis? you on something??

    He is Odadjian, no Odadjia . . . He is Armenian like Serj Tankian, Daron Malakian and John Dolmanian . . . All armenian surenames finishes with "ian" . . . . And I hope them to reunite . . . .

    you, sir, have no musical taste. would you rather listen to some sh!tty hiphop or rap? at least SOAD writes about sh!t that's actually going on around us (ex: Toxicity). That's one of the main reasons I think they're an amazing band. Better than listening to some half-@ssed song about f*cking everyone and 'gettin crunk.' Although you can't pass up good bud ha!

    Wow! Look at all these posts. Best news since I got my brand new Epi Thunderbird. Certainly makes up for Metallica's new album, and this is just a rumor. System for life M*th*rf*ck*rs

    I hope Brent Hinds gets a piece of him one day, and repays him for that little incident after the '07 VMAs. He'll put that little **** under the dirt. Overall though, I wouldn't mind seeing a SOAD reunion.
