Scars On Broadway Interview & ‘They Say’ Live Performance

Scars On Broadway 'They Say'

Altitude TV caught up with Scars on Broadway’s Daron Malakian and John Dolmayan, who talked about their self-titled debut album and System of a Down not getting back together anytime soon. When the interviewer compared their situation to Slipknot and Corey Taylor with Stone Sour, Malakian responded, “This is what we’re focused on right now. Nobody’s talked about System right now. I think when they were doing that whole thing they actually had it planned Slipknot was actually gonna come back, but we’re just 100% focused on what Scars is doing right now.”

The interview, and a performance of their new single ‘They Say’, has since been removed by Altitude TV.
