Talk about raising expectations.
In a new appearance on the Kyle Meredith With podcast System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian was asked if the band has any future plans. Rather than evading the question, Tankian gave the best answer he could at the moment:
Serj said, “As of now, we haven’t talked about anything. We will be making an announcement about something next year that I can’t really tell you about. So there is that. But further than that, I can’t really say.”
So we know something is coming, but we don't know what it is and will have to wait over two months to find out. Well, it's something.
