Serj Tankian: 'Occupied Tears' Video
"Occupied Tears", the new video from singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, poet and political activist Serj Tankian, can be seen below. The song comes off Serj's new solo album, "Harakiri", which was released on July 10 via Reprise Records/Serjical Strike, reports Blabbermouth.net. In a recent interview with CraveOnline.com, Serj stated about the "Harakiri" title track: "[It] refers to the ominous events of early 2011 when close to a million species of bird and fish died, without much satisfactory scientific explanation. The omen was not lost on me. Varied creatures on earth were committing massive harakiri or were being given a sign to leave this place. Why would these intuitive beings closely knit in the fabric of nature leave? What does that mean for us in terms of environmental degradation, events to come, etc.?" When asked if there is a thematic idea behind the "Harakiri" album, Serj said: "'Harakiri' is not really a concept record, although the idea of harakiri as it relates to death is a central theme. Everything else on the album captures the same time period of life in these times: political and social events, personal stories, humorous interpretations. It tries to convey the massive upheaval of our global life today ripe with injustice, economic inequities, the failing of the massive globalist agenda, and of course revolt."
