While fans would love to hear new music from System of a Down, it doesn’t seem likely it will happen. Apparently, the band can’t find any common ground with how to record.

According to Daron Malakian, singer Serj Tankian is at odds with the other members. “It’s kind of three of us that don’t necessarily see eye to eye with where he would wanna take the band.”

Despite the two taking public jabs at each other, the guitarist admits, “I don’t hate anybody in my band.”

He also added, “When it comes to happy holidays, Easters, birthdays, we’re all still cool, we all consider each other like a family.”

While System’s last album was released in 2005, they still have shows planned, hitting the Sonic Temple Festival and Chicago Open Air this weekend.

How important is it for bands to keep releasing new music?
