Music News For The Week Of May 19, 2013!

Looks like System Of A Down has a little Queensryche thing going on. You remember when Queensryche kicked out Geoff Tate? Well, bass player Shavo Obadjian came out last week and said that the band is ready to go and record and tour but lead vocalist Serj Tankian is the problem, working on his projects, etc. Shavo went on to say maybe that SOAD should look for a new singer and make music and tour, asking fans for their support. Later this week the band on their site stated that Shavo had a bad day and they believe that only that the four of them can continue as SOAD. No word from Serj but maybe this will spark a new album.
