System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian has previewed a new track in a bizarre video posted to his YouTube account. The clip shows Tankian sitting in a studio talking about dogs (and I think we saw batman pop up there for a second), before we see about 20 seconds of new material being played. Tankian posted the clip himself to his Twitter page along with a message “New music? Nahhhhh…Okay, maybe.”
System of a Down recently reformed, but haven’t given signs to show they would release some new material. The band have not been playing any new songs while on tour, and claimed they had no master plans other than to play some shows together again.
Serj Tankian was writing new material for a follow-up to his 2010 solo album, Imperfect Harmonies, but this was before SOAD reformed and went back on tour…
So it’s a little unclear as to what this video means at the moment. Just watch it for yourself.
