System of a Down guitarist Daron Malakian may have written two albums worth of songs in 2005 but that doesnâ€™t mean heâ€™s ready for a break.
Prolific songwriter Malakian is already planning his own side project called Scars on Broadway and will take SOADâ€™s summer break to work on the material. "We all want to take a little bit of a break. But I don't want to sit around, so I'm going to make an album."
He told Rolling Stone about the new band: "I haven't decided if I'm going to make it a revolving door of musicians or one solid band but it all revolves around my writing."
Malakian also stressed that his new project wouldnâ€™t mean the end of System of a Down, adding: "Serj did Serart. We're always doing things outside of System that come back to System in a positive way."
