Follow up to the weekends System of a Down news...

by Otto Man

System of a Down have released an official statement regarding bassist Shavo Odadjian's public diss of frontman Serj Tankian. Shavo said over the weekend Serj was holding the band back, but now the group is backpedaling on his remarks saying: "Earlier today, Shavo posted a few statements on his personal Facebook page that do not reflect the sentiments of System of a Down as a collective band. These were misleading statements that were made during a temporary state of bad judgment on his part alone. To be clear, the full band lineup . . . will be performing all scheduled tour dates. With respect to new SOAD music although we have not agreed on a timetable for a new album, we all believe that having the four of us do it together is the way to be true to the band and our fans." More  and more
