Titled ‘Down With The System’ (we see what you did there), the nu-metal legend’s book will be available in hardback, audio and e-book via Headline Publishing Group on May 14, 2024.

It’s said to be “far more than just a rock n’ roll fable”, describing not only the story of System Of A Down but also “an activist’s awakening, and it’s a spiritual journey from darkness toward light.”

Taking to his socials, the Armenian-American frontman shared:

“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.

Senior commissioning editor at the book’s publishers, Richard Roper, has added: 

“Serj has never been a conventional rock star and this isn’t a conventional memoir. 

“We are absolutely thrilled to be publishing this forthright, funny, and gloriously entertaining book – Serj’s fans are going to absolutely love it.”
