System of a Down’s Serj Tankian on upcoming album: “I’m gonna call it Elasticity”

System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian on upcoming EP: “I’m gonna call it Elasticity”. He also interviews for his new solo album.

We’ve got some bad news about System of a Down may not be dropping a new album any time soon. However, the band frontman Serj Tankian has planning to release an EP (solo album) full of tracks. That was originally made for the band, saying he had “I’ve got an EP of rock songs that’s gonna be out this year. Once I score another film I’ll probably put out some more soundtracks next year as well.”

Serj Tankian just explained in a recent interview with Spin Magazine:

“Originally I had these songs in mind for a System record if we were to end up doing a System record. But as we could not really see eye to eye on how to go forward with that I decided to finish them off myself and release them as an EP.” He also talks about when System of a Down will release a new album: “I don’t know, man. It hasn’t happened. But I’ll never say never.”

Then he added for his upcoming solo EP:

“I always have random rock tracks done at different times and I sit on them. And then one day the right project or right idea for releasing them will come along. They all have piano or synthesizers, which is a little different than the four-person crew with System, although we had some synths as well. It’s got stuff that’s really heavy, heavy and there’s a funny aspect and then there’s a song about my son. It kind of runs the gauntlet on the diversity of thematic expression: political, non-political.

I guess that’s always been me, all over the place. I think I’m gonna call it Elasticity just because I wanted to do it with System and it didn’t happen. For me, it’s not Toxicity but it is Toxicity. [Laughs.] That’s what I’m thinking of calling it. I haven’t finalized it, but that’s what I’m thinking of calling it. We’ll probably put it out later this year.”
