John Dolmayan, drummer of System of a Down, announced a side project, “These Grey Men” 5 years ago and it looks like we will be hearing the first album soon! “So, I know it’s been forever, but it will be released. I also had two kids between it, so when I had my kids, I stopped doing everything else and just concentrated on being a father. So, it takes time, but hopefully people will enjoy it” he told SOADmexico at the beginning of December.
“It will be released within the next four months. All the songs are finished, but we’re in the process of adding strings… And then, we’re actually starting to mix some of the songs that have already been done. And there’s some cool artists on it. Serj sang two songs, and the Avenged Sevenfold singer, Matt, he sang a song. And then I have a bunch of other friends that came. Tom Morello played guitar on a song.”
