ANCA TOURS WITH SYSTEM OF A DOWN

-- Joins Amnesty International and Axis of Justice
in Educating System Fans during North American Tour

WASHINGTON, DC - Cutting-edge, multi-platinum band System of a Down
continues to deliver its message of justice for the Armenian
Genocide, educating fans at its Summer 2005 concert series about
this crime against humanity, and urging them to work for the
adoption of the Armenian Genocide Resolution, reported the Armenian
National Committee of America (ANCA).

The ANCA, at the invitation of the band, has worked alongside
Amnesty International and Axis of Justice at activist tables at
concerts to distribute educational materials, secure signatures on
petitions, field questions, and promote discussion about the
Turkish government's ongoing denial of the Armenian Genocide. The
ANCA, in coordination with its regional offices and with the help
of the Armenian Youth Federation (AYF), has already worked shows in
Long Beach, CA; San Diego, CA; Phoenix, AZ; Dallas, TX; San
Antonio, TX; Houston, TX; Pensacola, FL; Miami, FL; Atlanta, GA;
Hampton, VA; Baltimore, MD; East Rutherford, NJ; and Philadelphia,
PA.

In May of this year, Mezmerize, the first half of the band's two-
part album Mezmerize/Hypnotize, debuted as the number-one selling
CD in the United States. On April 24th of this year, System held a
sold-out "Souls" benefit concert for the ANCA and other groups
working to prevent genocide and counter genocide denial. The band
has sold nearly 10 million CDs worldwide. A Google search for
"System of a Down" returns over 1.6 million hits.

"We are tremendously encouraged by the overwhelming response to
System's creative and powerful outreach to their growing fan-base,"
said ANCA Executive Director Aram Hamparian. "The band has
educated literally millions about the Armenian Genocide, increasing
awareness of this crime and helping generate the political will we
will need to defeat Turkey's campaign to deny justice to the
Armenian people."

Among the media outlets that have discussed the Armenian Genocide
and/or the band's Armenian heritage during their coverage of this
tour are the New York Daily News, Newsday, Boston Globe, Boston
Herald, Philadelphia Inquirer, Bergen Record, Miami Herald, Orange
County Register, San Diego Union-Tribune, Palm Beach Post, Newark
Star-Ledger, San Bernardino Sun, Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Atlanta
Journal Constitution, and Rolling Stone.
