System Of A Down's Serj Tankian

Hear System Of A Down’s Serj Tankian Guest On New Euringer (Mindless Self Indulgence) Track


Another track from Mindless Self Indulgence vocalist Jimmy Urine‘s (aka James Euringer) forthcoming Euringer solo release has arrived. The latest finds System Of A Down vocalist Serj Tankian guesting and is titled “If It Ain’t You Today It Will Be You Tomorrow“. Tankian and Euringer have a long history together that includes their long-gestating British gangster film inspired Fuktronic project.

Tankian commented of this track, which took inspiration some inspiration from Rev. Martin Niemöller’s famous anti-Nazi sermon, ‘First They Came For The Socialists…‘:

Jimmy and I have been friends for years and I was excited to collaborate with him on his record.

We’re both fans of nutty witty humor, so when he told me to just go off with whatever words come to mind, I grabbed some poetry book titles of mine I had in the vocal booth and randomly spewed them off in the mic.

He then cut the ones he liked and mixed them. His record is bombastic and diverse, unlike most shit out there.”

Euringer also sat down with Revolver to discuss the forthcoming album as well as the aforementioned Fuktronic project with Tankian. Speaking of the latter, he offered:

“Yeah, we’ve got a project called Fuktronic. It’s basically an animated, electronic English gangster cartoon that we’ve been working on for a while. It’s just a lot of fun, just a departure from music. All my side works have been fun and stuff I’d want to do on my own.

Our dynamic is very chill, which is why we do this kind of stuff, especially because, with Fuktronic, it’s electronic type soundtrack music, which we’ve both been doing a lot of on our own. So we really talk a lot about that and dig soundtrack work and dig composing and movies and that. In that sense, I think we love talking about that and plugins! We love to talk about plug ins until the cows come home. [Laughs]”

The song itself is included on Euringer‘s new self-titled album, due out this Friday, October 19th, on Metropolis Records.
