New Serj Tankian Video For "Money" Posted Online

SYSTEM OF A DOWN frontman Serj Tankian's video for the song "Money" can be viewed at this location.

Tankian recently added more headlining U.S. dates to his current tour schedule, which finds the vocalist alternating between his own shows and an opening stint for FOO FIGHTERS. Tankian's newest confirmed gigs will take him out west and into Canada during a two-week period in mid-March, before he heads overseas for a European trek that begins on April 1. FAIR TO MIDLAND will open for Tankian on the March dates. Tankian's run with FOO FIGHTERS started on February 18 in Worcester, Massachusetts and ends on March 6 in Los Angeles.

Serj Tankian recently issued "Sky is Over" as the second single from his debut solo album, "Elect the Dead". Although Tankian doesn't say straight out what the song is about, he did tell The Pulse of Radio that it comes from both his childhood memories and his concerns about the planet. "I've always thought of the sky as, like, an open canvas," he said. "When I was a kid and I looked at the sky, I always remember being able to daydream, just looking at the sky, being creative, being able to design things. What would happen if we had no sky? Where would we be? Well, obviously, scientifically, without an atmosphere, we'd all be dead."

"Elect the Dead" made the "long list" of finalists for this year's Shortlist Prize, which is awarded to an album that has sold less than 500,000 copies. The winner will be announced in the spring.

"Elect the Dead" came out in late October and landed at Number Four on the Billboard album chart.
