System of a Down have thanked President Joe Biden for recognizing the Armenian Genocide.
Two of the band's members expressed their gratitude in separate statements on April 25. System of a Down fans are likely aware of how important political and social causes are to the group. SOAD's Armenian-American heritage has informed much of their work, including last year's first new songs from the band in 15 years, issued to underscore the consequences of the 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh war. But this week's response from the band looks back a century to World War I.
