Serj Tankian, the enigmatic frontman of System of a Down, has released a teaser for Figure It Out, the first single from his upcoming album Harakiri. The album will be released July 10th via Reprise Records/Serjical Strike. The album will be available for preorder starting May 1st, which also coincides with the date that Figure It Out will be available for order off of iTunes.
The teaser video for Figure It Out, which you can view below, shows Tankian kidnap and torture a poor, innocent, helpless mail box. Yes, you read that right. Also, you get to decide at the end of the video whether or not the mailbox lives or dies. Live or die, make your choice (HA!).
