Serj Tankian To Release “Elect The Dead Symphony” on March 9, 2010

On March 16th, 2009, Serj Tankian took the stage at the majestic Auckland Town Hall in New Zealand with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra to perform a very special orchestral interpretation of his critically acclaimed debut solo album Elect the Dead. The dynamic one-off performance was recorded and filmed in HD by six cameras, and the dramatic result has been captured in Elect the Dead Symphony — a CD/DVD that will be released by Serjical Strike/Reprise Records on March 9, 2010.

With the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra at his side, Tankian’s epic songs and operatic vocals take on a whole new sense of grandeur when performed by a full 70-piece orchestra, while the DVD’s sweeping edits showcase the drama of the concert. This unique meshing of two very different musical worlds was a vision Tankian has long wanted to make a reality. What sets Elect The Dead Symphony apart from other successful pairings between rock artists and orchestras is that Tankian specifically rearranged his songs to be performed with only orchestral instruments.

Elect the Dead Symphony will be released as a deluxe CD/DVD 6-panel digi-pack with an eight-page full color booklet, on vinyl in a double gatefold jacket with full color insert, and as a CD-only version in a standard jewel-case with a 12-page full color booklet. Each version of the packaging features unique images not included in the other formats.

The track-listing for Elect the Dead Symphony is as follows:
1. Feed Us
2. Blue
3. Sky Is Over
4. Lie Lie Lie
5. Money
6. Baby
7. Gate 21
8. The Charade
9. Honking Antelope
10. Saving Us
11. Elect The Dead
12. Falling Stars
13. Beethoven’s C**t

14. Empty Walls
