Scars on Broadway‘s live shows have been few and far between since they released their self-titled debut disc in 2008, but singer and lead guitarist Daron Malakian has reconfigured the band’s lineup and is ready to hit the road this fall. The group’s first performance on their current run with Deftones came Sept. 22 in Irvine, Calif. as part of the Epicenter Festival.

Earlier this year, Scars on Broadway parted ways with their other System of a Down tie – John Dolmayan – but have since replaced him with Jules Pampena on drums and percussion. Also absent from the 2008 lineup is guitarist and occasional lead vocalist Franky Perez.

The current band, which also features Danny Shamoun on keyboards and Dominic Cifarelli on bass, got to work out a mixture of older favorites like ‘They Say’ with brand new songs like ‘Dictator,’ ‘Sickening Wars,’ and ‘Guns Are Loaded.’

They’ll be opening dates for Deftones this fall. The band also recently revealed that an EP is in the works, but a release date has not been announced.
