Serj Tankian Releases New Clip From Elect The Dead Symphony
Serj Tankian has just released a performance clip of “Empty Walls” from his upcoming Elect the Dead Symphony CD/DVD release, due in-stores March 9th.
On March 16th, 2009 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.
Check out the clip:
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. Each version of the packaging features unique images not included in the other formats.
