Update: 07/12 Videos Harakiri – ButterflyYesterday, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, poet, political activist and System Of A Down front man Serj Tankian released his new studio album, Harakiri, his third solo album to date. In conjunction with the album’s release, Serj premiered the video for the title track, “Harakiri” which is now up on YouTube as well. Tune in tonight to Jimmy Kimmel Live! (ABC 12pm/11pm CS) when Serj performs “Harakiri” on the Bud Light Outdoor Stage.

“‘Harakiri,’ an infectious celebration of our collective unconscious suicide” explains Serj on the meaning behind his new album. “The message here is as important as the music as seen on the video for the title track – hear it, see it, post it, share it, love it, hate it, own it. We raped the earth yet don’t know why it strikes. Children outcry grandfather sky.”

Serj and the rest of his bandmates in System of a Down will be performing a handful of dates in August. Serj is also confirmed to be part of Slipknot’s Knotfest August 16th and 17th.
