System of a Down is Reuniting, European Dates Announced (Is a US Tour Forthcoming?)
When news broke that our beloved System of a Down was reuniting and playing in Europe for two weeks in June 2011, my brain started shorting. After going on indefinite hiatus in 2006 (just a few months after releasing their fifth album, Hypnotize), System of a Down left a discernible gap in the spectrum of intelligent rock music.
And because we missed them so...
On their site, the band said they don't have a "master plan of sorts," but "We are playing these shows simply because we want to play together again as a band and for you, our amazing fans."
