System Of A Down back in the studio? Where The Hell is Serj Tankian?
Over the past three days, three of the band's four members have posted Instagram (watch below) pictures of themselves playing together in a studio.
The veteran Californian heavy metal band, haven't released an album since 2005's 'Hypnotize', yet they have regularly played together live in the intervening years. They last performed in the UK in April 2015 with a show at London's Wembley Arena.
Bassist Shavo Odadjian started the speculation by posting a picture of himself in a rehearsal studio with drummer John Dolmayan behind his kit, While this triggered much discussion about the possibility of new music among the band's fanbase, the excitement was increased earlier by the added presence of guitarist Daron Malakian in the studio, a moment captured on Dolmayan's Instagram.
Notably, vocalist Serj Tankian is absent in all three pictures, with some fans asking Dolmayan where he is. "Where the fuck is Serj. But fuck it, if you take Daron's voice it will be perfect", wrote one fan.
