Serj Tankian released his third solo album today (Tuesday, July 10th), called Harakiri. Here he talks about the strange incidents in early 2011 that inspired the title, in which a vast number of birds and fish seemed to "commit suicide."
Tankian said, "Why would all this happen at the same time around the world? Why would species almost voluntarily decide to go, or why would they be given some type of command to go, at the same time, all around the world -- massive species of birds, fish -- do they know something we don't know? Obviously, birds and fish are very intuitive creatures -- why would they decide to go? What do they know that we don't know? It was a huge omen for me, I'm like, 'I can't believe people aren't talking about this!' I was freaking out."
