System of a Down lead singer/lyricist Serj Tankian‘s autobiography, “Down With the System,” will be released on May 14, 2024, via Hachette Books.
Tankian made the announcement about the upcoming memoir on social media, saying, “Boom! – I wrote a new book. I had a blast working on this accidentally hatched philosophical memoir as it’s given me the unique opportunity to deep dive into my family history, my own motivations from a young age and lessons I didn’t know I had learned.”
A synopsis of the memoir from Hachette Books reads, “In Down With The System, Serj presents readers with a memoir that is far more than just a rock ‘n’ roll fable. It’s an immigrant’s tale, it’s an activist’s awakening, and it’s a spiritual journey from darkness toward light. And all of this comes down to the fact that Serj himself has had the chance to live an extraordinary life-thanks to a combination of luck, circumstance, struggle, talent, and spiritual awakening.”
“Braiding together Serj’s thought-provoking insight with heartfelt and poetic prose, DOWN WITH THE SYSTEM retraces Serj’s remarkable and unlikely journey, and explores what it’s taught him-about music, about art, about activism, and about himself. It’s an unforgettable ride that will leave you breathless-and an absolute delight for new fans and old ones alike,” the synopsis adds.
The Down With the System hardcover, priced at $30, is available to pre-order now. The memoir is also available as e-book.
