System went on hiatus in late 2006 after touring behind the previous year’s Mersmerize and Hypnotize, reassuring fans they were not breaking up and would eventually return to action. System of a Down are also currently up for the Eagle Rock Comeback of the Year award at the 2011 Golden Gods Award Show. Vote here!
