A fitting companion to the worldwide tour dates announced by System of a Down would be a full-length album from them, and after about 11 years, that reality will be here soon. According to the band themselves, there are about fifteen tracks that are “album-worthy.” While no date was quite announced yet, the possibility for a 2017 launch date is certainly in the realm of possibility. The band’s drummer John Dolmayan had this to say:

I want everyone on board and feeling good about it, that’s what we’re trying to accomplish right now,” he said. “There’s a tremendous amount of pressure on us, though, because it’s been 11 years – at least 12 by the time it comes out.”

The news fulfills some of the teasers the band has put out on social media, with footage of them practicing new material and adding live dates on their website:
