Daron Malakian’s Scars On Broadway have released their new single titled Lives.

It was reported last week that the System Of A Down guitarist had resurrected his side-project, with the song the first material from the band since their self-titled debut album in 2008.

Malakian said: “First song/video off of the second Scars On Broadway album drops April 23. Oh it’s true. It’s damn true.”

A new album will launch in the near future, with the video for the song expected to arrive later this afternoon. Listen to the track and watch a snippet from the Hayk Matevosyan-directed promo below.

Earlier this month, System Of A Down announced a handful of live US dates for later this year. The band’s last album was 2005’s Hypnotize.
