New System Of A Down music is "just a matter of time" says bassist Shavo Odadjian

Rock News 20/12/2018


In a new chat with Consequence of Sound via Loudwire, System Of A Down bassist Shavo Odadjian suggested that it is only a matter of time before the band eventually work things out to release new music, and when it happens, it will be worth the wait.

Shavo says,

Nothing between us has happened that’s so terrible that people can’t get in the studio and work. Nothing!

Everything is just [a matter of] taste, and they just gotta get in and forget the past, and kind of move forward, and I think that will happen. I’m not worried. I’m not worried at all.

There were reports earlier this year that the band members were at odds with each other, but Shavo reveals those concerns were more related to past issues and that, just like any family, while they may disagree with each others' views, they are all on good terms.

We’re not even fighting. When we see each other, we’re so happy and we’re cool.

When asked about new music, Odadjian revealed that the music they have worked on was impressive.

We have material that tops everything we’ve done, and that’s me telling you, honestly. I can’t wait to record that and drop it. It’s just a matter of time. I just hope it happens sooner than later.

But we’ve written stuff together. Daron’s brought a lot of stuff in. I’ve brought stuff to Daron and we’ve worked it out. I have so much more stuff that is ready to go out. I’ve told Daron this, too. I’ve said, 'We’ve gotta get this done,' and he’s like, 'Yeah, I’d love to.'

So, we all want to, and I think Serj is kind of doing his own thing, and I get it.

Music to our freakin' ears.
