SYSTEM OF A DOWN has toured intermittently since ending its hiatus in 2011.
The band played a couple of U.S. live shows in May, including headlining slots at Columbus, Ohio's Sonic Temple festival and Chicago Open Air.
SYSTEM OF A DOWN has blamed "creative differences" for stalled attempts to record a follow-up to its "Mezmerize" and "Hypnotize" albums, which came out in 2005.
Last year, guitarist Daron Malakian publicly accused singer Serj Tankian of not wanting to record, with Tankian responding that creative and financial issues with Malakian led to the stalemate. In a message on Facebook, Tankian wrote that Malakian wanted to control SYSTEM's creative process, take more of the publishing money and be the only band member to speak to the press.
