Not even a week on from the release of their two new songs Protect The Land and Genocidal Humanoidz, and System Of A Down have already raised an amazing $600,000 for charity.

The band shared their first new material in 15 years last Friday (November 6), donating all Bandcamp proceeds from both songs to the Armenia Fund, a charity who provide assistance to those in need in Artsakh and Armenia.

"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," they say.

"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. Watch the interview in full below."
