Serj Tankian’s Elasticity, a five song EP, comes out March 19 via Alchemy Recordings/BMG. The video for the title track, in which a woman (Sasha Bortich) attempts to break free from a seemingly unending line, has been posted on Tankian’s YouTube Channel.
Elasticity’s original concept started out as a possible album with his longtime bandmates. “When I conceived possibly doing another record with the guys from System of a Down a few years back, I started working on a set of songs that I arranged in rock format for that purpose,” said Serj Tankian. “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.”
Tracks on the EP are as follows: 1. “Elasticity” 2. “Your Mom” 3. “Rumi” 4. “How Many Times?” and 5. “Electric Yerevan.”
