DEFTONES frontman Chino Moreno joined SYSTEM OF A DOWN on stage this past Tuesday (August 14) at DTE Energy Music Theatre in Clarkston, Michigan to perform the SOAD song “Suite-Pee”. Fan-filmed video footage of his appearance can be seen below.
SYSTEM OF A DOWN last released new music in 2005 on the “Mezmerize” and “Hypnotize” albums, going on hiatus the following year.
The band reunited in 2011 for touring purposes and launched a new run with DEFTONES on August 2 in Philadelphia.
SYSTEM OF A DOWN frontman Serj Tankian told Loudwire that SYSTEM‘s recent tours have been a “blast,” adding, “I think we’ve played better because of it. There was new excitement in playing together and all of the shows have been really great. Everyone’s told us that we sound better than we did in 2006 when we left off, so I think it’s great.”
DEFTONES‘s seventh album is tentatively scheduled for release on October 9. The CD will follow up 2010’s “Diamond Eyes”, which was the group’s most successful and acclaimed outing in years.
