Scars on Broadway (SOB), the much-anticipated collaboration between System of a Down guitarist/vocalist Daron Malakian and drummer John Dolmayan, are mounting their first-ever North American headline tour this fall. The 23-date club tour kicks off on October 19 in Atlanta, GA, and wraps on November 26 in Houston, TX. More cities are expected in the near future.

Scars on Broadway will be supporting their self-titled debut album released July 29. Many of their songs had their genesis years ago. “I like to let my songs marinate over time, that helps determine which ones speak to me the loudest,” explained Malakian in a statement.

Malakian, who penned or co-penned System of a Down classics such as “Aerials,” “Chop Suey!,” “Hypnotize,” and “B.Y.O.B.”, wrote the Scars songs mostly on keyboards and a drum machine.

Different from the chaotic/alt/metal sound of System of a Down, the Scars tracks are more song-based and showcase Malakian’s varied writing style, from the simmering rock sound of “World Long Gone” to the melodic yet desolate “Universe.”

On tour, guitarist Franky Perez, keyboardist Danny Shamoun, and bassist Dominic Cifarelli will join Malakian and Dolmayan on tour.
