Serj Tankian of System of a Down’s newest solo album, Harakiri, will be available everywhere Thursday, July 12th. In anticipation of the release, Tankian has teamed with Red Bull to stream the album in full.

The Lebanese-born Armenian-American poet is interested in exposing is what he considers the mass suicide of animals; scientists are presuming other reasons for the multitudes of unexplained animal deaths all over the planet. This is the theme of the Harakiri’s title track. “I love creating relationships between things that don’t have pre-existing relationships,” explains Tankian. “Humor versus the politcal, versus the philosophical versus spiritual…”

“I wasn’t intending on writing another rock record and these songs just started coming to me. And I’m like f**k, I think I have a rock record.”

Watch an exclusive performance and Q&A webcast with Tankian the day his album hits stores, Thursday, July 12th at 12:30PM PT/3:30PM ET. Serj will perform songs from his forthcoming album Harakiri, which hits stores just days before on July 10th. Watch the webcast live here.

Harakiri is presently available for pre-order on his official website. $2 from the sale of each pre-order will be donated to a non-profit organization to fight global hunger.
