System of a Down announced today that proceeds from the band’s Pledge of Allegiance show in East Rutherford, New Jersey on Halloween will go to the September 11 fund.
Singer Serj Tankian said: “All of us in the band were very shaken by the events of September 11. We know that there are so many victims of this tragedy who need help, and we felt that since we were going to be performing in the New York area, it was a perfect opportunity for us to do something that would make a difference. The donation is from our hearts.”
SOAD will also donate money from the Continental Airlines Arena show to the American Red Cross Liberty Fund.
