As some of you know, System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian and peta2 are longtime allies. He’s never afraid to speak his mind, having taken action against KFC and having joined fellow musicians Tom Morello and Anti-Flag to speak out against military trauma training. Serj recently rang us up here at peta2 headquarters to tell us about his two adorable dogs and give us props, stating, “I appreciate how peta2 supports animal adoption.”
During the call, we also chatted with Serj about his latest album and third solo recording, Harakiri. We are more than stoked to share the brand-new video for the album’s title track with you here! The video is Serj Tankian through and through: driven, fearless, and powerfully charged with social and political fire. Check it out:
Hello! My name is Nina, and I am a musician-in-training, and I play 7 instruments. I am a liberal, an LGBT activist, avid reader, composer, singer, and poi spinner. I am vegan, and a strong supporter of animal rights.
I have always lived in Los Angeles but my family and I went to Mexico for my parents wedding. So we came back to LA. I don't like LA but were here already what can I do unless I move out and find my own housing. I have always liked animals and it was til I was like about 14 when I learned about tests they do on animals and I began to explore animal cruelty because I was interested it in it. I have watched videos that just broke my heart so that's why today I'm doing all I can to not buy anything that has harmed an animal and I'm vegetarian .
