SYSTEM OF A DOWN's Musical Future Might Include 'Greatest Hits' CD With Previously Unreleased Tracks, But No NEW Music!
Recently, Musik Universe chatted with SYSTEM OF A DOWN's front man Serj Tankian about the bands future plans. The interview took place on August 11 at this year's Heavy MTL festival at Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
About writing NEW music:
The band has made it clear in recent interviews that no plans have yet been made for the group to begin work on a NEW studio album.
"I think we have about four or five unreleased tracks that we finished before. We need to talk about what to do with them, etc. But I would be very open to releasing, like, a greatest-hits record with a few [previously] unreleased tracks. However, we haven't really discussed it, so I don't wanna make a promise."
Solo project vs SYSTEM OF A DOWN:
"It's an interesting dynamic, I think, writing by yourself and writing with people. When you have a very focused idea, a very concrete kind of understanding of what you wanna present and have the skills and the ability to completely present it the exact way that you want to, it's much more conducive to do it yourself. If you have ideas that require other people's input to kind of make it something else than what you have, then a collaboration — whether it's with SYSTEM or anyone else for that matter — would be much smarter."
