After many years of delays, pauses and breaks due to tours and other projects, RZA and System of a Down's Shavo Odadjian's collaboaration Achozen have released eight new tracks. They're available through the limited edition version of the Boombotix Boombot Pro portable speaker. George Clinton and former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante are featured on the tracks, which include the previously released "Salute Sacrifice". 

The duo began working together in the mid-2000's after they met through mutual friends and decided to work together.

"In January, I had took a listen to the Achozen album again in my studio – sober – and I was like, 'Man, this shit is fucking how the fuck... wow. We never gave this to the world,'" RZA told Rolling Stone. "So I talked to Shavo and he tells me that this is the 100-year anniversary of the Armenian genocide. 'Then we got to do it!' It just hit me like, 'Yo, this is a great place to put the record at and it won't be going through all that other bullshit that we've been trying to avoid.'" 

Here's a single off their release titled "Salute/Sacrifice"

Shavo claims that the pair have 12-15 more songs that they're working to finish that they will release in the future through Boombotix.
