Serj Tankian Shares Tease Of A New Solo Single He Originally Wrote For System Of A Down


0

System Of A Down vocalist Serj Tankian, has newly announced a May 17th premiere date for his new single “A.F. Day“. That track is taken from his “Foundations” EP, which is tentatively due out this September through Gibson Records.

This particular song was originally written by Tankian for System Of A Down early on in their career. The outspoken political activist/musician/entrepreneur/poet, etc. newly commented of it:

“This is a song I wrote in the early days of SOAD that I never released. The majority of the instrumentation and vocals are recordings from that time. Dystopian in mood, it’s a reflection of the angst and anti-authoritarian attitude I had to conformity.”

A tease of the music video for the single has been launched below. You can also pre-save the track via gibson.lnk.to/afdaypr. Furthermore, music videos for each of the EP’s five tracks have already been shot. Along with this tease, you can check out the lyrics for “A.F. Day“:

A.F. Day

I borrowed rent today so I can let my body stay awhile
Twice sorrowed by mistake for the color of my step seems too dry
The Ruby of the north is red yet it’s green for the blind consent of our time
Another Day x4
Another Fucking Day x4

Medieval educators locking horns at the playground at 5,
Real live police crime shows
Submission of the population at large
The blind man cannot see all the marchers on the opposite side
Another Day x4
Another Fucking Day x4

Why do religions require from their faithful blind and questioning servitude?
If thy path is so righteous, then why the use of forcing attitude
Celebrations are not the birth or an end but the Christ of being
Blindness servers not God, but man in his self-justified will

I borrowed rent today so I can let my body stay awhile
Twice sorrowed by mistake for the color of my step seems too dry
The Ruby of the north is red yet it’s green for the blind consent of our time
Another Day x4
Another Fucking Day x4

Tankian‘s memoir ‘Down With The System‘, will be published on May 14th by Hachette Books. Several book events have been lined up around its release, here’s the itinerary:

05/14 New York City, NY – Barnes and Noble-Union Square
05/15 Brooklyn, NY – POWERHOUSE Arena
05/21 Los Angeles, CA – Barnes And Noble-The Grove
05/24 Hollywood, CA – Book Soup

Having rejoined his System Of A Down bandmates onstage for a set at this past weekend’s ‘Sick New World‘ festival in Las Vegas, Tankian will next be back out with that acclaimed group at the Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, CA on August 17th. System Of A Down will headline that event, which also boasts performances from Deftones, The Mars Volta, VOWWS & Viagra Boys.
