Serj is independently releasing two albums this summer through his own Serjical Strike Records.
Orca, Tankian’s first true symphony, will be released on June 25 and the collaborative jazz infused album Jazz-iz Christ will be released on July 23.
I recently recorded this beautiful song in Armenian called Garuna by Komitas, with Tigran Hamasyan on piano. It will be released on our Jazz-iz-Christ record this summer. I want to dedicate it to all those in Armenia fighting for positive change.

Just wanted to share this article from Yahoo that I thought was really cool. Peace, Serj
LONDON (Reuters) - Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi has written the music for Armenia's entry to the annual Eurovision Song Contest, bringing a heavy metal pioneer to an event described by the media as a "kitschfest" and "bad taste party".
The musician, a founding member of the influential British band, said the song called "Lonely Planet" was a "demo idea" which was eventually voted Armenia's Eurovision contender.
Note From Serj: "History cannot be re-written."

Serj has written the full musical score for the upcoming video game Morning Star. Industrial Toys, the studio producing the game, is set to release Morning Star in Spring of 2013, initially for iOS devices.
"I'm really enjoying working on Morning Star because it gives me the ability to create new musical worlds to complement the new visual worlds in the game,” explains Tankian. “Though most of the gameplay will be action oriented cues, the stunning artwork and static scenes have inspired unique sounds unheard before."
After our successful Kickstarter campaign for ORCA, we received numerous requests from some of you that wanted to support the project, but missed out on the opportunity to do so through Kickstarter. We're happy to announce that we have new Kickstarter-inspired ORCA packages in the Serjical Strike store. Available for a limited time only!
