System of a Down’s Shavo Odadjian Says Serj Tankian is to Blame for No New Album
Update, 3:50 pm: The band has now issued a statement in response to Odadjian’s declarations… the short version is something along the lines of, “Shavo was drunk Serj please don’t leave us.” From the SOAD Facebook page:

In the comments section beneath these posts, Odadjian adds, “we Daron, John and I are dying to make a new record and tour again>>> you decide!!!!!!!” [sic], “we’re tired of waiting!!!! NO disrespect to Serj System has to go on!!!!! who agrees???????????” [sic], and “sorry bro, @ serj Tankian . had to tell the truth.. ive been being harassed since you didnt wanna do anther record. love u.” [sic]
