Billbord.com reports that System Of A Down guitarist/vocalist Daron Malakian and drummer John Dolmayan are putting the finishing touches on the debut album from their new rock band Scars On Broadway, the pair tells Billboard.com.

The artists are currently shopping for a record label, and hope to release the self-titled set by late summer. "We're in the final stages," Dolmayan reports. "There are three or four songs left."

Scars On Broadway performed last week at this year's Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival at Empire Polo Field in Indio, Calif. The band already received a warm welcome earlier last month during its debut performance at the Whisky A Go-Go in Los Angeles.

"It was crazy," Malakian recalls. "Nobody knew any of the songs, but the crowd was going off. The response we got gave me a lot of confidence."

So far, only one Scars On Broadway song, the hard-edged "They Say," has been released online. With about 20 songs already recorded, many of which won't make the final album cut, another track could be posted online before the album drops, according to Malakian.

True, but John Dolmayan is under rated, SoaD doesn't give him much room to grow and I think if he could open up he'd be a beast.
