Serj Tankian teilaa huhut uudesta System Of A Down -albumista

Viidentoista vuoden äänitystauolta marraskuun alussa palanneen System Of A Downin nokkamies Serj Tankian kertoo ”Protect The Land/Genocidal Humanoidz” -singlejulkaisun syntyneen enemmän aktivismin kuin musiikillisen ilmaisuhalun seurauksena. Tankian keskusteli Studio Brusselin kanssa motiiveistaan palata takaisin sorvin ääreen System Of A Downin kanssa pitkän tauon jälkeen:

“It was great. It was not so much an artistic decision or a decision of, ’Hey, let’s make music together. Let’s have fun making music together.’ It was nothing like that. It was more about because Azerbaijan and Turkey had attacked the peaceful, civilized people of Artsakh on September 27th. We have to do something for our people. This is bullshit. We need to get some justice. So we did it as an act of activism more so than a musical decision.”

Laulaja kertoi myös, ettei mitään suunnitelmia ole tehty koskien System Of A Downin tulevaisuutta, ja yhtyeen keskittyvän keräämään varoja humanitääriseen apuun Artsakhissa:

“We got together for the cause. We’re still working for the cause. We’re still fundraising for the cause. We have not talked about the future of the band. It’s not something that we’re thinking about right now. Right now we’re still dealing with the fallout of what happened with the war, refugees, displaced people, humanitarian aid. So we’re concerned about that. We’re not concerned right now about music or anything else.”
