"Lie Lie Lie" is the latest single from Serj Tankian's 2007 debut solo album, "Elect the Dead". Although the song is just making its way onto radio stations now, you might have already heard it on TV as the opening theme for NBC's new horror series, "Fear Itself". Tankian told The Pulse of Radio that "Lie Lie Lie" started out as a different type of song altogether. "It was a serious song, and it wasn't working out in the studio. It was, you know, I was tracking that song with other lyrics, like really serious, heavy, potent lyrics, and I would go back to the control room and listen to it and go, 'Something's wrong with this song, like, I'm not getting the vibe, what's wrong with it?' And I realized that the music is so playful and so humorous and yet the lyrics were so serious and heavy, you know."

Tankian told The Pulse of Radio last week that the highlights of his last eight months on the road may soon be documented in a DVD featuring videos, live performances and behind-the-scenes footage.

The SYSTEM OF A DOWN singer is working with playwright Steven Sater on composing the score for a musical called "Prometheus Bound" and also plans to record a jazz album.

Tankian will perform a theatre show in Los Angeles on August 2, before heading to Dallas for an appearance at the single-day Ozzfest with OZZY OSBOURNE and METALLICA on August 9.
