Tankian’s eagerly awaited EP, which he announced last May, will be released on March 19 via Alchemy Recordings.
The five-tracks on ‘Elasticity’ were originally intended for a new System Of A Down album however, Tankian said the band were unable to “see eye to eye” and move forward with the project.
“As we weren’t able to see eye to eye on the vision going forward with an SOAD album, I decided to release these songs under my moniker,” Tankian explained. Find the full tracklist below.
To mark the announcement, Tankian has shared a taste of the five-track offering (which he teased on Twitter on February 1), dropping new single ‘Elasticity’. It also received a music video, directed by Vlad Kaptur, in which Tankian appears as a singing tattoo on the protagonist’s forearm.
