SERJ TANKIAN To Release 'Imperfect Remixes' EP; Artwork Unveiled

SYSTEM OF A DOWN frontman Serj Tankian has announced plans to release the "Imperfect Remixes" EP, a collection remixes of select cuts from his 2010 album, "Imperfect Harmonies". The cover artwork for the effort was created by Patrick Call and can be viewed below.

"Imperfect Harmonies" sold 10,200 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 35 on The Billboard 200 chart.

Tankian's solo debut, "Elect The Dead", opened with 66,000 units back in October 2007 to enter the chart at No. 4.

"Imperfect Harmonies" was the second solo effort from the SYSTEM OF A DOWN frontman. As with "Elect The Dead", Tankian produced the CD himself at his home studio in Los Angeles.

"Where 'Elect The Dead' was essentially a rock record with progressive melodic elements," Tankian said, "'Imperfect Harmonies' could be classified as rock because it is punchy with many peaks throughout, but the instrumentation is somewhat different. Though there are live drums, bass, and some guitars, the driving aspects are electronic and orchestral. It's quite unique in its sound palette. This is, in essence, music that has sat in the vat and matured to a ripe sensation and is now ready to serve.

In other news, Tankian has contributed to "Prayer Cycle 2: Path To Zero", a benefit for the anti-nuclear organization Global Zero. The seven-song set, due out May 10, was written, produced and coordinated by composer Jonathan Elias as a sequel to his 1999 release "The Prayer Cycle".
