Euringer (Mindless Self Indulgence) Streams New Song “If It Ain’t You Today It Will Be You Tomorrow” Feat. System Of A Down’s Serj Tankian

James Euringer, aka Jimmy Urine (Mindless Self Indulgence), has premiered a new song titled “If It Ain’t You Today It Will Be You Tomorrow,” via Revolver. The track features System Of A Down’s Serj Tankian and it will appear on Euringer’s new solo album, which is set to be released on October 19.

Tankian said the following about the track, which is partly inspired by Rev. Martin Niemöller’s famous anti-Nazi sermon, ‘First They Came For The Socialists…‘:

“Jimmy and I have been friends for years and I was excited to collaborate with him on his record.

We’re both fans of nutty witty humor, so when he told me to just go off with whatever words come to mind, I grabbed some poetry book titles of mine I had in the vocal booth and randomly spewed them off in the mic.

He then cut the ones he liked and mixed them. His record is bombastic and diverse, unlike most shit out there.”

Furthermore, Euringer also talked about his and Tankian’s Fuktronic project:

“Yeah, we’ve got a project called Fuktronic. It’s basically an animated, electronic English gangster cartoon that we’ve been working on for a while. It’s just a lot of fun, just a departure from music. All my side works have been fun and stuff I’d want to do on my own.

Our dynamic is very chill, which is why we do this kind of stuff, especially because, with Fuktronic, it’s electronic type soundtrack music, which we’ve both been doing a lot of on our own. So we really talk a lot about that and dig soundtrack work and dig composing and movies and that. In that sense, I think we love talking about that and plugins! We love to talk about plug ins until the cows come home. [Laughs]”

Euringer (Mindless Self Indulgence) Streams New Song “Sailor In A Life Boat” Feat. Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance)

James Euringer, aka Jimmy Urine (Mindless Self Indulgence), has premiered a new song titled “Sailor In A Life Boat,” via Alternative Press. The track features My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way and it will appear on Euringer’s new solo album, which is set to be released on October 19.

Way commented:

“The thing about this record that really blew me away is how experimental it is. Knowing Jimmy, I didn’t simply expect a Mindless 2.0 record, but nothing really prepared me for just how out there he got with this one.

It’s exciting. Yes, it has hooks that he is great at writing, [and] yes, it is fun and dancey at times, but [it’s] also really bold and different. Jimmy stretched himself in new and interesting ways, which was awesome to hear—expect the unexpected with this one.”

Euringer added:

“The meaning of the song is that I’m very comfortable being alone and being by myself. I have always been that way, and I think that a lot of people are not comfortable with being alone socially.

That led me to the ‘sailor in a life boat’ lyric. I can be alone for long periods. Obviously I couldn’t live without my wife, and I love my close friends and family. But I am also totally fine hanging out by myself, and I have been that way since I was a kid.”

System Of A Down, My Chemical Romance, Etc. Members To Guest On New Jimmy Urine (Mindless Self Indulgence) Album

The first single “Problematic” can be found below. Euringer said the following about the new album:

“I was having fun exploring my brain. And I wanted to invite my friends to have fun with me immersing myself in another time and space, bit by bit, gaining its form from my daily life into a surreal stream of consciousness. More specifically, I wanted it to sound as if Depeche Mode hired J. Dilla and DJ Premier to drop loops while Frank Zappa produced, and then I came in and shit all over it.”
