System of a Down have expressed their gratitude to their fans for the support of their campaign for the people of Artsakh. Last week, the group surprised us with their first piece of new music in fifteen years with songs Protect The Land” and “Genocidal Humanoidz.” Their reason to release the songs was to raise awareness of the serious war upon their homelands of Artsakh and Armenia, which is happening in the middle of a pandemic.

“We are overwhelmed with gratitude for your incredible support of our campaign for the people of Artsakh, and for helping us raise over $600K so far in donations to provide for those in dire need via the ArmeniaFund. Because of you, we will be able to help displaced civilians, young and old, who are affected by the hideous war crimes inflicted upon Artsakh by Azerbaijan and Turkey. Please take a few minutes to watch our full interview to get a more intimate look and understanding into why we came together to release “Protect The Land” and “Genocidal Humanoidz”. To the four of us, it’s extremely important to share these truths with you. It is for our ancestors, our culture, and our nation. Help us spread the message.”
