System Of A Down frontman Serj Tankian has revealed that his new album is to be entitled, ‘Imperfect Harmonies’. Talking about the album, Tankian has said:

“‘Elect the Dead’ is essentially a rock record with progressive melodic elements. ‘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.”

“I have been calling the music ‘electro-orchestral-jazz-rock’ because it has all of those aspects in prominence within the songs. A few are more stripped down, but the majority of the songs have this huge wall of sound presented in a way I’ve never heard before. It’s not common to have a song that is both electronic and orchestral since one is synthetic and the other organic, but I found a way of meshing a lot of these colors together.”

“My intentions have always been to make music that is creative, quality, and moving. I have never learned the static method of repeating myself musically whether in System or now. Each record I have made has been different musically, yet they all carry the same integral spirit.”

‘Imperfect Harmonies’ is expected to drop during the later part of the Summer.

I know that the term ‘electro-orchestral-jazz-rock’ sounds a little worrying but on the other hand is Serj Tankian we talk about!
