During in the recent interview with Consequence Of Sound, System of a Down bassist Shavo Odadjian has revealed new update about new SOAD album.
He clarified the claims that ‘there is a disagreements between guitarist Daron Malakian and singer Serj Tankian over the SOAD songwriting process’ and said:
“Everything that you heard over the summer, that they kind of brought into public, was stuff that was in the past. That stuff happened a long time ago. So, it’s like, 10 years later, something new came up, but it wasn’t really new.
It was something that was really old, and they were just hashing it out. Because one person did an interview, and I guess in the interview they paraphrased his words and it came off wrong. And I read that, too, and it wasn’t like him. He wouldn’t blame anyone.
I spoke with Daron, and he was, like, ‘Dude, I didn’t say those things. I said it this way.’ Anyway, that kind of made someone else [Serj] think something, and then that person had to tell their point of view. It was just point of views.
We’re not even fighting. When we see each other, we’re so happy and we’re cool. It’s weird that we don’t have a new record, or many records, and it’s weird that we don’t go on world tours. We tour, but it’s so little.”
System of a Down’s latest album Hypnotize was released in 2005.
