System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian never saw his Serart side project as anything more than a chance to explore his Armenian roots. For the moment, he would rather leave the politics to Axis of Justice, a grassroots activist group he runs with Audioslave’s Tom Morello. “People expect those working in the music industry to do something with what they believe in, but everyone works in some industry and everyone sees things,” Tankian tells Billboard.com. “It’s not just artists who should speak their voice. I think that overwhelmingly we’ve heard people voice their opinion as to the lack of justice with this whole situation with Iraq. This is historically the first time there are anti-war protests around the world before a war even starts. That shows how you how very afraid people are of their political leaders.”
