Serj Tankian Says Reason Why System of a Down Hasn't Released Anything In 15 Years Is 'Quite Simple'


Serj Tankian During a recent Q&A at the Tumo Center for Creative Technologies, System of a Down vocalist Serj Tankian was asked about the band's lack of creative output in the past 15 years.

SOAD released its latest studio album "Hypnotize" in November 2005. The musician replied:

"There's been many things said, but it's quite simple: We just haven't been able to see eye-to-eye creatively to go to the next level. To me - and I know to the other guys in the band - System's very special. What we've done together is very special and we can't do something unless we're all really, really into the same direction, into the same goal, into the same vision. And that hasn't happened. We tried. I would say a couple of years ago, we made that effort - songs were written by myself, by the other guys, but we just couldn't see eye-to-eye, and that's really it. And that's OK. We're still all friends, we have great relationships, and we tour together, we have fun together, and that's that."

Drummer John Dolmayan recently said on the Paltrocast about the current SOAD situation (transcribed by UG):

"I don't see us recording - we're pretty stupid about that. We haven't released an album in 15 years, and I think the people in my band are more stubborn or less stubborn, so it's pretty unlikely."
