System Of A Down’s Serj Tankian to appear on Anthony Bourdain’s CNN show

The vocalist will travel around Armenia

System Of A Down vocalist Serj Tankian has announced that he will appear on Anthony Bourdain’s CNN show, Parts Unknown.

The programme will see the pair travel through Armenia, where Tankian’s parents are from, with historian Richard Giragosian.

It will air on May 20, and take a wide-angle look at the culture of the country.

Tankian made the announcement on Facebook, writing: “So I guess the cats out of the bag about my trip to Armenia last year. Pictured next to me is one cool cat named @anthonybourdain.”

He instructed followers to watch them as they “cruise around Armenia in a sweet black Volga.”

Earlier this month System Of A Down released tour dates with At The Drive In and Skeleton Witch.


The gigs were promoted with artwork depicting an apocalyptic family holiday, featuring a beach littered with atomic bombs.

This has led to hope and speculation that the band will soon be releasing their long-awaited sixth album, as the band have not released a full record since 2005’s double album ‘Mezmerize/Hypnotize’.
