Serj on Kickstarter!

Serj Tankian had launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund ORCA, or his first real symphony as he calls it. And, guess what, he’s reached his goal of $25,000 with $41,257 of pledges! These include three $1000 pledges who will get a sit-down lunch with Serj among other cool stuff! Oh man. If only I had $1000 to spend.

The first ORCA symphony will be performed by Serj on 28th October in Austria.

Serj Tankian on politics

System of a Down is famous for its themes on war and politics. Huffington Post has a short interview with the band’s lead singer Serj Tankian on, well, politics. While expressing his favor on Obama over Romney, Serj expresses that he has no intention to run for the office.

“I hate injustice, and I can’t help but speak against it,” he says. “But I don’t want to get involved in politics. I have a more direct avenue to expression as an artist than I ever would as a politician.”
