System of a Down have confirmed that they’re working on a new record.

The Serj Tankian-fronted quartet have some 15 songs sitting ready to be recorded for an as-yet-untitled new record.

Drummer John Dolmayan told Kerrang! the following: “Our playing ability is better than it ever has been and we’re trying new things. We’re not trying to make Toxicity Part II, just because it was by far our biggest album. This needs to be something for a new generation of SOAD fans, so everyone can see we’re not resting on our laurels.”

The band have already announced a string of huge headline shows next summer, including sets at Rock am Ring and Rock Werchter. Listen to classic track Chop Suey below.
