SCARS ON BROADWAY SIGN WITH INTERSCOPE; WHY?
System of a Down’s Daron Malakian and John Dolmayan now have a release date and a record label for their Scars on Broadway project; July 29th and Interscope. Scars on Broadway released the song “They Say” a few weeks back, generating mixed reactions and a heated debate in our comments section. Listen to the track below.
I’m scratching my head as to why Malakian and Dolmayan, very established musicians who seems quite capable of generating buzz and releasing a record on their own, would sacrifice some of their potential revenue by chosing to go the major label route. Scars could easily pull a Reznor / Radiohead, go the DIY method and do just fine. Or are they so well-off from System at this point that the money doesn’t matter and they just want to get the music out to as many people as possible? Seeing as barely anyone recoups these days, maybe they’re smart to take the advance and run…
