Serj Tankian drops hints on System of a Down hiatus
It was noted that at the end of the show on Saturday he said “we will always remember you”. He reposted the photo that bassist Shavo Odadjian posted of the band with Korn but deleted the part where Shavo said “see you soon”. Then last night he uploaded a clip of him at the show with the caption “we will always cherish your enthusiasm, love and support”. Some might be thinking too far about the band’s future, but the band could seemingly part ways.
Zombie Roca posted, “I know it’s unlikely that this really is it, but Serj is seriously making it sounds like it’s over. At the end of the show Saturday he said ‘we will always remember you.’ He reposted the photo Shavo posted of the band with Korn but deleted the part where Shavo said ‘see you soon.’ Then last night he uploaded a clip of him at the show with the caption ‘we will always cherish your enthusiasm, love and support.’ Maybe I’m reading to far into it but it really made it seem like this is it.”
One of the fans also speculated a possible farewell announcement as the fan said: “Yeah I kinda feel that way too. Maybe a farewell announcement soon or something.”
While another fan believes that “if these shows were truly the last, they would’ve made an official announcement.” They fan also said: “When they first started, they didn’t come in quitely, and I don’t see them as going out quitely either. Not their type.”
A fan also noted that both Shavo and John Dolmayan openly said they would like to do it again. Serj can only speak for himself, and sure, his unwillingness may result in even less shows from now on. But, should the band go on hiatus, they are likely to get a proper farewell. It is to be also noted that the band would likely to make the official announcement of the disbandment or hiatus rather than just Serj.
