System Of A Down announce livestream event

System Of A Down will host a livestream event this weekend to raise money for Armenian soldiers wounded during the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

The livestream will take place this Saturday, January 30, at 12pm EST exclusively on the band's YouTube channel and will be immediately followed by a video premiere for their "Genocidal Humanoidz" track.

System Of A Down had this to say about the cause for which they're fundraising: "The freedom fighting soldiers of Artsakh and Armenia have suffered war crimes at the hands of Azerbaijan, later abetted by Turkey. Even after the ceasefire signed on November 10, 2020, those heroes wounded in the recent conflict remain in dire need of prosthetics, advanced treatment, and medical care. We are hosting a fundraising livestream event in order to raise money to rehabilitate and outfit the nearly 1,000 soldiers who have lost arms and legs with life-changing prosthetic limbs. The funding will also benefit the introduction of groundbreaking laser therapy for the treatment of white phosphorous chemical burns and the reduction of scarring and agonizing pain. All proceeds from the livestream will be donated to this cause."
