The story of "a brave bird" facing fighters destroying Earth

For Serj Tankian diehards, Revolver has a limited-edition Spring Issue collector's bundle featuring a numbered slipcase, alternate cover and the activist-musician's new EP, Elasticity, in exclusive white vinyl. Get yours before they're gone!

System of a Down vocalist and current Revolver cover star Serj Tankian has offered up a new music video in support of his recently released solo EP, Elasticity, which features five songs originally intended for his famed alt-metal band. The moving, metaphorical clip — for standout cut "Your Mom" — was directed by artist and animator David Bradford, who has worked with both Tankian and SOAD in the past. Watch the evocative visual above. In addition to offering up the EP, the singer also serves as the subject of a revealing new documentary, Truth to Power.

Bradford commented of the video, "As I listened to the beginning of the song, with the more mellow acoustic guitar, I envisioned a brave bird flying over a countryside, unaware of the danger waiting in the ashen, war-torn lands ahead. This didn't stop the bird from gliding into danger and took the form of 'Your Mom.' As the fighters continue their campaign of destroying the Earth with their bombs and chaos, the mom summons the strength from her connection to Mother Earth and becomes the personification of justice against the fighters. She kicks their asses and returns to the form of a bird, perched on the carcasses of the destroyers and restores the Earth's balance."
