SOAD Vs Turkish Media

(antiMusic) System of a Down are a bit peeved at the Turkish media. We'll let the band tell you what happened. Here is a statement they have issued on their official website: The Turkish media has been spreading blatant lies about System of a Down, among them the claim that we had an anti-Turk slogan printed on tickets during our 1998 tour with Slayer.

The truth is that System of a Down cancelled our shows opening for Slayer in Turkey in 1998. Any tickets for the Turkish portion of the 1998 Slayer tour were printed on Slayer's behalf, not ours. In fact, there were no Anti-Turkish slurs printed on any tickets for that, or any other tour involving System of a Down.

System of a Down wishes that the media in Turkey, and elsewhere, be conscious of the facts, responsible in their research, honest in their writing, and dedicated to the essential importance of the truth.
