System of a Down’s “indefinite break” is over. The band announced the dates of its concerts in Europe this June. Below is the announcement, posted on System of a Down’s website.
We are excited to announce that System will be playing some dates together in 2011.
We also want to thank you for your loyalty and support, not only to System Of A Down, but to all of our solo efforts as well. We have no master plan of sorts – we are playing these shows simply because we want to play together again as a band and for you, our amazing fans.
The list of dates and on-sale information for these shows is below.
We look forward to seeing all of you!

Its members are Serj Tankian (lead vocals, keyboard, guitar), Daron Malakian (vocals, guitar), Shavo Odadjian (bass, vocals), and John Dolmayan (drums).
