Will System of a Down be added to the growing list of reuniting bands this year? Bassist Shavo Odadjian has caused some controversy on the subject this week from his Twitter account. On January 11th, he posted “Are u guys ready for System???” leading readers to believe that the band will be returning from its hiatus which started after the release of their 2006 album, Hypnotize.
The next day, however, Odadjian tweeted an apology for the question. ”About my ‘are u guys ready for System?’. I’m not sayin we are back but, if so? U guys ready? SoRry for gettin u guys amped. I’m just seeing.”
Although it seems Shavo retracted his statement, a reunion still looks like a possibility, with the System of a Down twitter page making statements like “get ready for 2010.” No word of such an event has become official, so fans will just have to wait and see.
