Watch Entire Performance from SOAD's Recent Performance in Zurich
Watch video footage of SYSTEM OF A DOWN's entire June 1 performance at Hallenstadion in Zurich, Switzerland below:
SOAD drummer John Dolmayan said in a recent interview that it's "very disheartening" that the band hasn't released a new album in nearly twelve years: "In our band, the difficulty really isn't, 'Is one of us gonna fall off the wagon or get into a bad situation?' It's really a matter of, 'Are we gonna come together and make something happen?' It's been about twelve years since we've put out an album."
He continued: "I don't know why we aren't coming out with an album. It's very disheartening, because it seems like we all get along, we all have a great time touring, we still are putting together really good music. I think that we can put out a fantastic album."
Frontman Serj Tankian said that a new album was not on the radar. "As far as a SYSTEM record, there's nothing in the plans right now," he said. "It's something that we'll do down the line when it's the right time. I've got a lot of stuff going on right now on my own, and trying to get all those releases out and work on them. But we've really been enjoying playing together on tour and having a blast, and I think our performance is actually better than it's ever been in our heyday."
