If you ever come across Serj Tankian in public, maybe don't yell "Wake up!" at him.
In an interview with Revolver, the System of a Down frontman shares that fans will often shout the "Chop Suey!" lyric if they see him out and about.
"People will scare the s*** out of me when they yell 'Wake up!' behind me somewhere -- wherever, in public," Tankian laughs. "I'm like, 'F*** dude! Really? Wow ... I'm glad you're excited but don't do that.'"
In addition to trying to avoid screams of "Wake up," Tankian is gearing up to release a new EP called Perplex Cities. The five-track collection arrives October 21, though Tankian has been previewing songs from the EP via the augmented reality app Arloopa.
