System Of A Down’s John Dolmayan Weighs In On The Band’s Issues: “Not One Of Us, Rather ALL Of Us Are To Blame”


Earlier today (July 12th) this interview conducted by Kerrang! with System Of A Down guitarist Daron Malakian made the rounds, which led to a tell-all response from the band’s frontman Serj Tankian that shed a bright light on the various issues that have kept the band from making a new album.

The band’s drummer John Dolmayan has since responded via social media as well on the matter, commenting with the following via Instagram:

“Many theories and much speculation have circulated through the years with blame focused on one member of the band for the lack of new material, if that is true; then why is that? Every action has a cause , every reaction has a cause and the truth is, each member of the band is equally responsible for both our incredible success on our previous recordings and our unbelievable failure to get along and make music together. Not one of us, rather ALL of us are to blame. Egomania eccentricities ,megalomania-and sometimes just stupidity all play roles.

To our fans, I’m truly sorry for letting you down , to the songs that could have been-I’m sorry you haven’t.”
