After a lengthy silence, Los Angeles alternative metal/hard rock outfit Scars on Broadway (founded by System of a Down member Daron Malakian) have announced their first new material in a decade.
Following the 2008 debut, Scars on Broadway, the band’s scheduled 2012-2013 sophomore album suddenly failed to materialize, with the band entering a six-year period of almost complete silence, and official social media outlets listing all of the project’s dedicated members (aside from Malakian himself) having departed or absent from the band. Following the apparent abandonment of the project, Malakian embarked on further live performances with System of a Down, alongside performing with Los Angeles group Millenials and appearing on Linkin Park’s sixth studio effort, The Hunting Party (on the track ‘Rebellion’).
Now, a decade since the release of their debut studio album, the band (re-branded as Daron Malakian and Scars on Broadway) have finally broken their silence, with Daron Malakian announcing via social media a brand new Scars on Broadway single due to be released on April 23rd, as well as their long awaited sophomore effort due at a later unconfirmed date.
Whether the album will feature the formerly teased track ‘Guns Are Loaded’ is yet to be seen, but in the words of Malakian himself regarding the new music; “oh it’s true. It’s damn true.”
