A new System Of A Down album could be in the works, according to frontman Serj Tankian.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, the singer revealed that there “had been talk” between he and the rest of his bandmates about recording a new LP. Their last album, ‘Hypnotize’, was released 10 years ago in 2005 but the band are scheduled to tour both the US and Europe this year.

Speaking about the prospect of a new album, Tankian said: “There has been talk. we are going to play this tour, come back and we’re going to see where we are. If we have songs that work for System, if I have them and Daron [Malakian, guitarist] has them. The openness is there to work together, but we haven’t made any particular plans that we can announce.”

System Of A Down will tour Europe this year to mark the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. In addition to playing their first ever gig in Armenia, with a free show in Yerevan’s Republic Square, they will also play shows in London, Cologne, Lyon, Brussels, Amsterdam and Moscow during April 2015. The date at London’s Wembley Arena will take place on April 10 and is the only UK date on the tour.
