System of a Down frontman and solo artist Serj Tankian has announced “a memoir of sorts” to be released this year titled Down With The System. Serj’s story is an unlikely one, he never expected to tour 5 continents or have 3 albums enter the Billboard Top 100. With Serj’s unique gift for words, readers can expect a thought-provoking and unforgettable ride.
From his roots as a child born to Armenian parents in Lebanon, moving to LA to flee civil war, to the present day, it's a spiritual journey in which he abandoned a promising business law career to make music, found his voice as an activist, and pushed the boundaries of what mainstream music can be. Not to mention what musicians can and cannot say. Down With The System: A Memoir (Of Sorts) will be available on May 14, 2024 via Hachette Books. Pre-orders are open now.
