System of a Down Payday For New Songs Revealed


Serj Tankian has revealed to NBC how much money the two new System of a Down songs “Protect the Land” and “Genocidal Humanoidz” have raised for Armenian charities.

“Yeah, it doesn’t have anything to do with the group. We decided to do this to gain attention so we can do interviews about the injustice and the humanitarian catastrophe being committed by Azerbaijan and Turkey against the Armenians of Artsakh, and to also raise much needed humanitarian funds. So it’s not about our musical career, it’s not about the band, it’s not about us, it’s something completely outside of it.”

He then revealed how much money the new songs have raised, “I don’t have the current figures today, but I want to say seven-to-eight hundred thousand within a week, maybe 10 days. And we’re gonna do a few fundraising events and auctions as well in the coming weeks to a month to try to get a lot more raised.”
