Serj Tankian’s EP, Elasticity, has finally arrived! The EP features songs the singer has originally planned for a new System Of A Down album but, due to the ongoing creative differences, he decided to release it under his own moniker. To celebrate the EP’s arrival, Tankian has unveiled a music video for the song “Electric Yerevan.” The Garin Hovannisian-directed clip showcases a visual timeline of the events leading up to the 2015 “Electric Yerevan” protests and the ensuing 2018 Velvet Revolution.


Tankian comments:

“The song was inspired by the successful Electric Yerevan protests in Armenia in the summer of 2015 where people protested against proposed hikes in utility prices. My writing from that time is inscribed word for word in the song.”
