Drowningman Confirm Reunion
May 21, 2004
Drowningman have confirmed the rumor that they would be reuniting. Frontman Simon Brody released the following statement on the matter:

Apparently the cat is out of the bag. We had planned on waiting a bit longer, launching the new website, and taking care of a few outstanding obligations. But, yes, it's true Drowningman is back.

Drowningman was started in late 1996 by Denny Donovan and myself (Simon Brody). When Denny left due to personal reasons several years later we made a difficult decision to soldier on.

After that Drowningman changed in a lot of ways, I think that's apparent to fans of the band when comparing our Hydra Head material to later stuff. Denny and I started working together again in San Francisco in a band called The Scheme which unfortunately fell apart. Having moved out to the west coast specifically to play in The Scheme, the aftermath was a difficult time for Denny and I, anyone that's lived in the bay area knows it's not cheap, so yeah things got a bit disastrous for us at points, but the good news is that Denny and I playing together again felt right and we knew that in some way we had to find a situation where it could work.

Well we finally have. The turbulent times of the Drowningman and Scheme breakups are behind us. The insanity of the past several years is gone and we're eager to approach this with clearer heads and something to prove.

This is not something we would even consider doing if we thought the results would be less than spectacular. A website will be launched in the coming weeks, at which point you'll be introduced to the new guys in the band. A record of demos spanning our career will be released this summer through our good friends at Law of Inertia Records entitled "Learn to Let It Go" live performances will be announced shortly as well. Yes, we will still play old songs but in terms of newer material, were working on some next level type shit. If you want to hear us rehash our "metal emo" past it won't happen, there's plenty of bands out there doing that, if that's what you're still into...

PS. outstanding merch orders will be honored, please email if your address has changed. you'll also be receiving complimentary copies of "Learn to Let It Go" when it is released to make up for the year long delay..."

System Of A Down Check In With Update On New Album
May 21, 2004
System Of A Down are currently holed up in their North Hollywood rehearsal space writing songs for their new album. The band recently commented on the new material, here is what they had to say:

"We've all been stretching and growing as musicians," said guitarist Daron Malakian. "The musicianship on the new songs is more complex, more intricate and technical. We're all so excited about being in this band and about getting into the studio to start recording the new album. There are a lot of things we want to try once we're in the studio, we'll be doing a lot of experimenting with these new songs."

The songs on "Toxicity" and 2002's "Steal This Album!" were thoughtful and issue-oriented, dealing with everything from the perils of government to cocaine-crazed groupies, the prison system, poverty and war. So, what can we expect from the new songs?

Vocalist Serj Tankian explains, "There's a good amount of social commentary in our new songs, as is typical with our writing in terms of lyrics. There are also songs where we deal with love, with reminiscing, relationships, politics, and funny experiences. But the thing that I find about the songs is that they're less specific, they are more open to interpretation, which we like a lot more."
