System Of A Down ‘still on indefinite hiatus’, says Serj Tankian

Frontman says the band 'always have offers to play festivals'

System Of A Down frontman Serj Tankian has cooled rumours about the band reforming, saying they have “not decided” on their future yet.

Tankian, who releases a new live album on March 8, was responding to a recent Twitter post by the band’s bassist Shavo Odadjia, which said: “Are u guys ready for System???”.

The band announced they were going on hiatus in 2006 and Tankian stressed that that is still the case now.

“We always have offers to play, from festivals and stuff, but we have not decided to do anything as of yet,” he told Billboard. “We’re in touch. We talk. We call it an indefinite hiatus, and that’s how we still look at it. Nothing’s really changed.”

Tankian added that he’s currently working on a new solo album, tentatively titled ‘Music Without Borders’, which he’s aiming to release this summer.
