SYSTEM OF A DOWN guitarist Daron Malakian will contribute a track to the upcoming full-length album from the STREET DRUM CORPS, the side project of THE USED frontman Bert McCracken. The CD, which will mostly feature found instruments, will have a whole lot of other guest stars.

"So far we've only used three drums on the whole recording. Everything else was stuff we found on the street: garbage cans and satellite dishes and big, heavy chains and propane tanks," McCracken told "And it turned out really well. We hoping to get a lot of different artists to be on it. Hopefully Daryl Palumbo from GLASSJAW will be on it, hopefully DJ Shadow is going to jump on it too. Daron from SYSTEM OF A DOWN said he's going to do a track. The STREET DRUM CORPS was pretty much the most punk-rock thing we saw on the Warped Tour, which kind of bums me out. But it's also encouraging that there are so many artists looking to help out with it."

The STREET DRUM CORPS debut should be out in February, just around the time McCracken and the rest of THE USED are scheduled to get to work on a follow-up to last year's "In Love and Death".
