SCARS ON BROADWAY, the new band led by SYSTEM OF A DOWN guitarist Daron Malakian and drummer John Dolmayan, played a CD-release show this past Monday (July 28) at Union Station in downtown Los Angeles. Watch performance footage of the song "They Say" below (courtesy of Altitude). Also available is a short interview excerpt in which Malakian states that "nobody's really talking about going back to SYSTEM right now."
SCARS ON BROADWAY will launch its first headlining tour of North America in October. Exact dates and venues have yet to be determined.
Both SCARS ON BROADWAY and SYSTEM lead singer Serj Tankian declined to release their latest projects through Columbia Records, where SYSTEM has been signed since 1998.
Tankian's debut solo effort, "Elect the Dead", came out last fall through the Warner Music Group.
SYSTEM OF A DOWN has been on hiatus since 2006 while its members have pursued various personal projects.
