SYSTEM OF A DOWN ALBUM POSSIBLE INSPIRATION FROM WAKE UP THE SOULS, FOCUSED ON TOUR AND HOMELAND
System Of A Down yesterday, April 1, got on a press conference call with California congressman Adam Schiff, Tanner Ackcham, and Aram Hamparian to discuss the band’s upcoming Wake Up The Souls tour, and what can be done to recognize the Armenian Genocide of 1915. Singer Serj Tankian and drummer John Dolmayan were on the call, and talked about the tour, which is named after their previous destination “Souls” concerts.
The band is set to perform their first date in their ancestral homeland of Armenia, and Tankian and Dolmayan talked about what that means to them.
System Of A Down were also asked if the energy they’re feeling around the tour will lead to an album.
Lastly the group recounted the reason why they’re undertaking the Wake Up The Souls tour, and if the itinerary will be expanded.
Currently, the worldwide Wake Up The Souls Tour to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide will kick off April 6 and will hit the UK, France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Russia and Armenia in Yerevan’s Republic Square.
