Ten years ago Scars On Broadway released its self-titled debut album. The band originally planned to release a follow up album but was postponed due to numerous hiatuses and changes in line ups. The band was rebranded Daron Malakian And Scars On Broadway and is set to premiere a single from the second album on April 23rd. While Malakian handled most instruments in the creation of the second album his System Of A Down bandmate John Dolmayan played the drums for it.
According to the PRP when a fan asked about the name change Malakian’s response was “Nobody quit. When I first started Scars, I always said that it would be different lineups from album to album. Depends on the type of direction I want to take. Different musicians work for different styles. That is partly why I added my name in front of the band’s.”
According to mxdwn System of a Down announced their first shows in the US since 2015. The band’s tour begins on October 13 in San Bernardino, CA. One of the band’s performances includes a headline performance at the Aftershock Festival. The few concert dates that the band has announced are from October 13 to October 19th and are only in CA, NV and AZ.
