Debut Album Dropping From Daron Malakian's Scars On Broadway
Scars on Broadway, the collaboration between guitarist-frontman Daron Malakian and drummer John Dolmayan, both best known for their work in System of a Down, has signed with Interscope Records and will see their self-titled debut released on July 29.
With Malakian sitting in the Scars' producer chair, he and Dolmayan entered the studio last September, recorded nearly two-dozen songs for the album, and then whittled down the final track listing to 14 songs.
Many of the Scars on Broadway songs had their genesis years ago. "I like to let my songs marinate over time, that helps determine which ones speak to me the loudest," explained Malakian. Malakian, who penned or co-penned SOAD classics such as "Aerials," "Chop Suey!," "Hypnotize," and "B.Y.O.B.", wrote the Scars songs mostly on keyboards and a drum machine. On the new scars material Malakian injects more rock than metal, citing influences from Iggy Pop to David Bowie to Neil Young.
Scars on Broadway has already played a handful of live shows, including Coachella 2008. They also opened for Metallica at an L.A. benefit gig. Scars plans to tour extensively to support the new album.
