Serj Tankian just released the official video for his first Harakiri single, “Figure It Out.” The video was directed by Ara Soudjian. “It’s a comical political song talking about abusive capitalism and the differences created in economic stature and the reaction to it,” says Tankian about the video. “CEOs have gotten away with murder, until now….”
Check out the video right here (but please feel free to disregard the commericial, it was beyond our control).
Harakiri, the new studio album from singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, poet and political activist, Serj Tankian, is set to be released July 10th on Reprise Records/Serjical Strike. Harakiri, a Japanese word meaning ritualistic suicide, is the follow up to 2010′s Imperfect Harmonies and the third solo release from the System Of A Down frontman.
Harakiri is presently available for pre-order on the singer’s official website. $2 from the sale of each pre-order will be donated to a non-profit organization to fight global hunger.
Serj and the rest of his bandmates in System of a Down will be performing a handful of dates with Deftones in August.
