System Of A Down haven't performed live in Europe since 2017, where they headlined a bunch of the continent's biggest fests including Copenhell, Nova Rock and Download.

Next year the band will celebrate 15 years since the release of their Mezmerize and Hypnotize albums, perhaps we'll see a special anniversary setlist? But you can probably bet against hearing any new music.

Speaking earlier this year about the possibility of a new album, guitarist and vocalist Daron Malakian said: "As friends, everything is cool and I have no problems with anybody. But then as band members, we tend to have different ways of wanting to do things. And it doesn’t seem like we meet eye to eye as band members.

"So, I never say never because you never know what happens. But at the same time, I don’t see that happening anytime soon that we’re all going to get together and make a new System Of A Down album.”

But nevertheless, a greatest hits System Of A Down set is still chock-full of legit metal ragers. Toxicity, Chop Suey!, Prison Song, B.Y.O.B., Violent Pornography, Aerials... the list goes on.
