Daron Malakian recently made headlines after he essentially said Serj Tankian is the one standing in the way of a new System Of A Down album. Tankian then responded with a lengthy statement to offer a more detailed explanation as to why the band haven’t created new music. Now, John Dolmayan has decided to weigh in on the situation, saying in a way they are all to blame.
Here’s Dolmayan’s statement:
“Many theories and much speculation have circulated through the years with blame focused on one member of the band for the lack of new material, if that is true; then why is that? Every action has a cause , every reaction has a cause and the truth is, each member of the band is equally responsible for both our incredible success on our previous recordings and our unbelievable failure to get along and make music together. Not one of us, rather ALL of us are to blame. Egomania eccentricities ,megalomania-and sometimes just stupidity all play roles.
To our fans, I’m truly sorry for letting you down , to the songs that could have been-I’m sorry you haven’t.”
