System Of A Down’s Serj Tankian On The Possibility Of “Protect The Land” And “Genocidal Humanoidz” Leading To Further New Music: “It Does Give Me Hope That One Day We Might Be Able To Get It Together And Do Something Again”

During a recent interview with Consequence Of Sound, System Of A Down’s Serj Tankian discussed the band’s latest singles “Protect The Land” and “Genocidal Humanoidz.” The frontman says that the tracks gave him “hope that one day [the band] might be able to get it together and do something again.”

Tankian said the following:

“Honestly, I’m extremely proud of us getting together for our people and the cause, at a time where Azerbaijan and Turkey not only attacked Armenians in Artsakh with military equipment, but they also attacked the Armenian nation with disinformation around the world, using caviar diplomacy over the years. Azerbaijan bought off a lot of politicians and they tried to create false parody in journalism and in the media — and it succeeded for a little while. So, I’m proud to say that our songs coming out, especially the video for ‘Protect The Land’, really kind of bit into that all in one day — just kind of boom, let the world know that these are people living on their own indigenous land, they’re being attacked, they’re trying to protect their families, and they’re dying because you got the second largest NATO ally Turkey basically attacking them along with Azerbaijan — both dictatorships attacking a democratic, progressive, first Christian nation society.”

He also added:

“So, I’m really proud of the work that we’ve done with System Of A Down, and it does give me hope that one day we might be able to get it together and do something again together. I think we were able to do it because we were able to put aside our philosophies and our creative differences even, and just go, ‘Who’s got a song that’ll work?,’ because at this point it’s just a weapon for truth and not about us. And it worked.”
