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.
