Scars on Broadway’s Daron Malakian and John Dolmayan Talk About “F**king”
A couple of weeks ago, we posted the premiere of Scars on Broadway's new song, "Fucking." This week, the band's vocalist-guitarist Daron Malakian and drummer John Dolmayan (both of System of a Down fame) answer a couple of questions about the song.
REVOLVER What’s this song about? (Dare we ask?)
DARON MALAKIAN This song is about how the media—TV, internet, marketing—sexualizes children by exposing them to Viagra, Girls Gone Wild, etc in between ball games or at your local neighborhood Hooters restaurants, and how this is changing society and the next generation of values and morals. The song is not for or against it, it’s just an observation I guess.
Why are you playing only a one-off show, at the Avalon, and what can fans expect at that?
JOHN DOLMAYAN We are playing on August 20 for the pleasure of playing and being on stage together as a band again. Fans can expect to have a great time in an intimate setting which is something different and special for both the fans and ourselves.
