Serj Tankian understood ‘hypocrisy and denial of the Armenian genocide in the Un

The System of a Down band members are currently busy with their solo albums and have no plans of rejoining, SOAD frontman Serj Tankian said in an interview with KROQ Radio.

“At this present time, we are not working on new music,” Tankian said. “We are enjoying each other’s company touring and one day we’ll make another record. I just don’t know when or how.”

As for his solo album Harakiri, scheduled for release on July 10, Tankian said that rock is easy and it comes to him naturally and pretty quickly.

Renowned for his activism as well as his art, Tankian said that his political awakening came at a “pretty young age” when he understood “the hypocrisy and denial of the Armenian genocide in the United States” and pondered the many truths being “held back for geo-political gain or political capital.”
