System of a Down are getting themselves ready for 2017, but what exactly are they planning? We know that there’s a European tour scheduled for June of next year, but the guys have been spending plenty of time in the studio of late rehearsing.

Both Shavo Odadjian and John Dolmayan just posted short Instagram videos of members of the band in the studio working through some music. It’s mostly some noodling around, with Daron Malakian riffing a bit on guitar, while Dolmayan pounds away on the skins. Not shown in the videos is vocalist Serj Tankian. Check out the videos below:
