In anticipation of the release of Imperfect Harmonies this Tuesday (21st), Serj has a special message for all his fans:
Ahoy Friends, Fiends and Friars :
I am extremely excited to announce the release of my new solo record, “Imperfect Harmonies” on Tues Sept 21st.
It represents a whole new sound, one that is a result of my musical experiences starting from System, to my 1st solo record Elect the Dead, to the orchestral Elect the Dead Symphony, to the present. It is an adventurous departure, some may say, from what I’m known for. Maybe it is.
But if there are any whom I consider as adventurous musical fiends as I, it is you, the friends and fans of System Of A Down.
After all, when System released our self-titled debut in 1997, it is you who understood us, not radio, not MTV, and certainly not the music industry.
Check out the link below to listen to some music and watch a couple of videos from ‘Imperfect Harmonies’
If you like what you hear, come join me later today at 7PM PST at http://www.ustream.tv/serjtankian where we’ll be doing a live video/audio stream of the whole ‘Imperfect Harmonies’ album from the studio where the live orchestra was recorded. I’ll be doing a live video chat after the album playback is finished and answer some questions from all of you.
Thanks for listening.
As mentioned in the letter to his fans, Serj will be chatting on his Ustream channel tonight at 7PM PST. Be ready to ask Serj your questions!
