Serj Tankian is the vocalist of iconic, much-loved metal band System of a Down. 2020, The Year of Our Pandemic: A year of social unrest, police violence and a monumental US election. The year of COVID-19 and its mounting death toll. A massive explosion and mass death in Lebanon. Political upheaval in Belarus. A spiraling world economy. Global protests. If ever a stage was set for new music from Serj Tankian, this is it. With his trademark eclecticism and one-of-a-kind vocal style, Serj delivers 'Elasticity', a five song EP that run the gamut from hard-driving, electronically enhanced anthems like the title track to rallying cries for his beloved Armenia ('Electric Yerevan') to the tongue-in-cheek political mash-up of 'Your Mom.' Elasticity is comprised of songs originally intended for System of a Down. But it didn't quite work out that way. The EP will delight fans of System who have waited a long time for new music.
