System Of A Down drummer John Dolmayan says the band have 15 new songs in contention for their sixth album.
Dolmayan reveals System Of A Down have been working on the follow-up to 2005's Hypnotize for the last six months and admits they are feeling the pressure as they approach 12 years since their last studio release.
He tells Kerrang: "We’ve been working on a new album for the last six months and there’s about 15 songs that I think are album-worthy.
“We don’t know what’s happening in terms of release, it’s still not 100% as far as plans go.
“I want everyone on board and feeling good about it, that’s what we’re trying to accomplish right now. There’s a tremendous amount of pressure on us, though, because it’s been 11 years – at least 12 by the time it comes out."
