Former System of a Down frontman and solo artist Serj Tankian is in the middle of writing a follow-up to his acclaimed poetry book, “Cool Gardens”. The new collection of works is yet to be titled but will feature illustrations by Roger Kupelian, the director of Serj’s music video for “Honking Antelope.” Serj wants to create a visual/interactive element to the new poetry book and more details will be released as they are available.

Since the band is "on hiatus", I'm not sure I'd call Serj the "former" frontman.

Sorry Psythe...Look anyway...The art printed with it seems intriguing, but Serj doesn't measure up to his own lyrics! He tries some basic word, cliche even, word play but it fails in adding to the purpose of literature, enlightenment.
