SYSTEM OF A DOWN Guitarist Preps New Band

SYSTEM OF A DOWN guitarist Daron Malakian has told Gary Graff of Billboard.com that he is in the process of forming and writing songs for SCARS ON BROADWAY, which will start operating in earnest once Ozzfest wraps in mid-August. The band is shooting to have its debut album out in the summer of 2007.

"I'm still kind of getting the whole band together at this point," Malakian told Billboard.com. "After I get back home from Ozzfest that's pretty much what I'll be focusing on.

"I think a SYSTEM fan will be able to relate to the music, but there's a few different directions I want to take, whether it be a little bit more ethnic or sometimes electronic," he added. "There's just a few artistic directions I want to take with SCARS that I haven't taken with SYSTEM yet."
