Down With the System with Serj Tankian

Down With the System with Serj Tankian

Join System Of A Down frontman and writer Serj Tankian, in conversation with journalist and filmaker David Farrier, to celebrate the publication of his incredible first memoir, Down With The System. 

With nearly 40 million record sales, three albums topping the Billboard charts, a Grammy win, and a legion of fans, System Of A Down is one of the biggest metal bands on the planet. At its core has always been Serj Tankian, whose journey from the streets of Beirut to rock superstardom is as remarkable and unlikely as you'll find. 

In this exclusive conversation, Serj will retrace his extraordinary journey, exploring what it has taught him – about music, about art, about activism, and about himself. 

From teaming up with Tom Morello to push social justice causes on unsuspecting metalheads to arguing with LAPD officers over the best way to quell his rioting fans, Serj will share an immigrant's tale, an activist’s awakening, and a rock memoir unlike any other. 

The ‘stream and book’ package includes a unique ticket for the stream, and a SIGNED copy of Down With The System (RRP £25) shipped by Waterstones and deliverable to any UK address

The event will initially be broadcast on 14 May at 6.30pm UK time. It will be available to view up to two weeks after the event has ended and can be accessed Worldwide. If you live in a time zone that does not suit the initial broadcast time you can watch it at any point after the initial showing for two weeks.
