System Of A Down’s guitarist Daron Malakian has revived his side-project Scars On Broadway, now stylised as ‘Daron Malakian and Scars On Broadway’.

The band are gearing up to release a brand new single and music video on April 23rd and will mark the band’s first new music since 2010’s politely titled ‘Fucking’.

The band has also changed lineups since their 2008 debut, with Malakian explaining the changes in an online post saying, “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.”

Malakian has stated in the past that his heart has “not been into touring” Scars On Broadway in the past, cancelling the band’s headlining tour and Jimmy Kimmel Live performance in 2008.

System Of A Down, although they have spent a good portion of the last year touring, “can’t decide” on how to move forward in terms of releasing new music. 

“We’ve discussed it and we’ve played each other songs, but we still haven’t come eye to eye on how things should be done for us to be able to move forward with it. That’s where it’s been” said Serj Tankian to Rolling Stone late last year.
