Earlier this month, System of a Down surprised fans releasing their first new music in 15 years. The primary reason for doing so was to raise awareness of the ongoing war in Artsakh which is affecting the hugely Armenian population. Over the last month, the band's members have been speaking out, and they're now sharing their gratitude for those who've contributed to the Armenia Fund.
In a new statement, the band offers, "We are overwhelmed with gratitude for your incredible support of our campaign for the people of Artsakh, and for helping us raise over $600k in donations to provide for those in dire need via the Armenia Fund. 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."
