System of a Down bassist Shavo Odadjian has been tapped to direct the first video from the upcoming record from Bad Brains. The record is titled Build a Nation and is due out June 26, 2007. Shavo adds:

"I've been a fan of the Brains ever since I can remember. They are iconic pioneers of punk, not just the music but the attitude. The energy that comes off their stage is like no other. HR's performances have effected not only my band, but almost every heavy band in our era. Another major inspiration is their message of trying to promote righteousness and living the righteous way. I am going to rock this video for the Brains and try to capture their intense energy. It's a big responsibility... I'm honored."

The band has also begun announcing dates for their upcoming world tour. The first block of confirmed shows is now available:

May 25, 2007 Berbati's Pan Portland OR
May 26, 2007 Berbati's Pan Portland OR
May 27, 2007 Sasquatch Festival George WA
