System of a Down – but not quite out?

15 years on from arguably their greatest musical achievement, rumours are afoot that System of a Down could be back with brand new material.

If you believe everything you see on Instagram, then we can absolutely guarantee that the metal gods will be returning. This is after SOAD drummer John Dolmayan posted the below image on his Instagram page, tagged with #Systemofadown and #Let(s)dothis.

It’s now 15 years (yes, that makes me feel very old) since SOAD released the epic Toxicity, and it’s 11 years since the release of their last studio album Mesmerize/Hypnotize, so a new release really would be unexpected.

The band split back in 2006 but returned five years ago for a host of festiavls across Europe, America and Australia, then played he Wake Up Souls Tour to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide Рwhich included their first ever show in Armenia last April.

But could talk of a new album be on the mark? Let’s wait and see with our fingers crossed!

1..2..3..4.. #systemofadown #letdothis
