    Couldn't see another thread for this, but remove if there is one already.

    Looks like SOAD teasing new music for this year.

    Looking forward to this.

    EDIT: Not a new music announcement after all. I'll leave this here with an edited thread title to discuss the band in general.

    Looks like it’s most likely just an announcement that they’re playing Aftershock Festival this year. Serj said only a few months ago that there’s not gonna be new music anytime soon, and I doubt that’s changed.

    This Is What SYSTEM OF A DOWN Is Teasing Today

    Yeah, I was also getting excited. Did some digging and was quickly made very sad.

    Should I just get rid of this thread or leave it as a warning for any other foolish speculators?

    It doesn't look like there's a band thread for them, so you can just edit the title and turn this into that.

    Sucks that this isn't even a tour announcement.

    Why tease announcing ONE show?

    Only a West Coast tour? What a bummer.

    If I have primarily only listened to Toxicity, what album should I explore next from them?

    Steal This Album! or Mezmerize.

    Toxicity is when I got into SOAD. It came out my junior year of HS. Never was able to get into any of their material before that but loved Toxicity, Hypnotize and Mezmorize. Also, Serj’s First solo album is great. I never checked out any of his others after that though.

    I’d say Mezmerize/Hypnotize

    THe self titled is more metal and less accessible for people not into that genre, bt the sound is similar because it’s Serj’s voice and Daron’s riffs and such.

    Steal This Album is basically all the leftovers from the Toxicity sessions, so that may work for you...There are some true gems on there, but a lot of others you can see why they didn’t make Toxicity.

    Mesmerize/Hypnotise have some duds IMO but they still had some of the Toxicity magic in them for those albums.

    Check out Serj's album Harakiri. It is his best and so great. A bit heavier than his last ones and more "System" I'd say.

    Self titled is still my favorite

    Toxicity pips it for me. But only marginally. Both are classics that haven't aged at all.

    Pretty good review nonetheless... but I do agree, I can't see Pitchfork having been kind to this album back in the day.
