Are System of a Down Back In The Studio?

I mean, some of them are.

Drummer John Dolmayan and bassist Shavo Odadjian of System of a Down have been writing new material, but it's not clear if it's for SOAD or if it's for a different project.

Dolmayan shared a shot of Odadjian on Instagram, citing that Shavo was a strong writer, and for everyone to "stay tuned."

Great song ideas flowing from a very strong song writer . Stay tuned @shavoodadjian

Loudwire shares that "Both Daron Malakian and Serj Tankian have stated in recent interviews that attempts at coming together on ideas for the next System of a Down album have stalled, with Malakian moving forward with a long in the works Scars on Broadway album and Tankian redirecting material he wrote for System to a new solo EP."

In the meantime, we'll keep hoping they come back together for some new material.
