System Of A Down: 'We Are Not Replacing Serj Tankian'


System Of A Down Serj Tankian

Heavy rockers System Of A Down have dismissed reports they are seeking to replace frontman Serj Tankian after bassist Shavo Odadjian went public with his frustrations over the singer's solo career.

The Chop Suey! hitmakers have been on a recording hiatus since the release of 2005's Mezmerize/Hypnotize album and Tankian has since embarked on a successful solo career, releasing four projects in the past eight years.

It appears bandmate Odadjian is far from happy about the frontman's alternative career after he sparked rumours of discord in the group on Monday (20May13), when he responded to fans' questions about album plans by claiming that the vocalist was the only one refusing to commit to recording sessions with guitarist Daron Malakian, drummer John Dolmayan and himself.

Tom Morello Recruits Rock Pals For New Occupy Anthem


Tom Morello System Of A Down Serj Tankian Rise Against

Rocker and activist Tom Morello has teamed up with System Of A Down's Serj Tankian and Rise Against frontman Tim Mcilrath to record a new song in support of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

The Rage Against the MAChine guitarist has been a leading voice in the demonstrations since the protests began last year (11) and he celebrated the first anniversary of the anti-big business campaign by headlining a rally gig in New York earlier this month (Sep12).

Now Morello has stepped up his involvement by working with Tankian and MCIlrath. The trio has recorded We Are the 99 Percent (sic) - a call to action track he hopes will be adopted as the movement's new anthem.

Heavy Rock Heavyweights Pay Tribute To Abbott At Dimebag Bash


System Of A Down Serj Tankian Tom Morello Disturbed Pantera

System Of A Down frontman Serj Tankian, Tom Morello and Disturbed star David Draiman were among the rockers who paid tribute to late Pantera guitarist Darrell 'DIMEBAG' ABBOTT at a marathon party in Hollywood on Wednesday night (14Dec11).

The trio joined members of Pantera, Sebastian Bach, Duff MCKagan and singer/songwriter Ben Harper at the Dimebag Bash, which annually honours the memory of Abbott, who was the victim of a crazed gunman at a concert in 2004.

The night's highlights included a version of Bruce Springsteen's The Ghost of Tom Joad performed by Morello and Tankian, and a reworking of Pantera's classic Seek and Destroy, sung by Draiman.

Proceeds from the five hour tribute concert will benefit the late Ronnie James Dio's Stand Up and Shout charity.

Tankian Postpones Album Release


System Of A Down Serj Tankian

System Of A Down frontman Serj Tankian is delaying the release of his new solo album - so he can print the packaging on eco-friendly paper.

The heavy rocker was expected to drop Imperfect Harmonies, his second solo effort, on 7 September (10) but fans will have to wait another two weeks - Tankian is pushing back the date so he can ensure his project is as green as possible.

The eco-activist, who recorded the album in his own home studio in Los Angeles, used the same environmentally-friendly materials to release his 2007 solo debut, Elect the Dead.

Tankian Rules Out System Of A Down Reunion


Serj Tankian System Of A Down

Rocker Serj Tankian has ruled out a full System Of A Down reunion, insisting the group remains on an indefinite hiatus - despite reports to the contrary.

Bass player Shavo Odadjian gave fans reasons for hope in a series of recent Internet notes, but Tankian insists the band is no nearer a comeback.

He tells Billboard.com, "We always have offers to play, from festivals and stuff, but we have not decided to do anything as of yet.

"We're in touch. We talk. We call it an indefinite hiatus, and that's how we still look at it. Nothing's really changed."

Tankian Promotes Hologram Tours


System Of A Down Serj Tankian

Former System Of A Down frontman Serj Tankian is urging eco-conscious rockers to stop showing up for gigs - and project themselves onstage instead to save the environment.


The rocker claims his peers could cut down on emissions by getting holographic.


He says, "I think we could reduce our need to travel if we could project ourselves into meetings and concerts. We have the technology, and we're not using it right now.


"There would be no travel costs, so bands with very little money could play shows, and tickets would cost less."

Rock Stars Help Striking Grocery Workers


Tom Morello System Of A Down Serj Tankian Slipknot Corey Taylor Phantom Planet

Former RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE star Tom Morello and System Of A Down's Serj Tankian are offering striking grocery workers in California a little Christmas cheer after hastily organising a benefit concert.

Grocery workers in Los Angeles have been locked out of big stores ever since they went on strike in October (03) in a fight over a reduction of their benefits.

And, with many of them facing a grim Christmas, the two rock activists organised a benefit show to raise cash for them.
