Daron Malakian (System Of A Down) and Scars On Broadway have premiered a new video for their song “Guns Are Loaded.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Dictator.”
Malakian told Rolling Stone the following about the song:
“‘Guns Are Loaded‘ isn’t necessarily about specific things, but more about a feeling or emotion. The song is about a feeling of anger, a feeling of a breaking point, or times when the world is coming down on you.”
He also added the following about the video:
“The skulls and devils are symbols for parts of us within. When you’re to the point when life is coming down around you, sometimes a darker side, a darker feeling or darker thoughts come out of us. When we are afraid, frustrated or angry, that side may show itself. The guns also symbolize something too: The song isn’t necessarily about actual guns, but they represent the desperation of a moment.”
In other news, Malakian has also been working on a new Scars On Broadway album and currently has a West Coast tour booked.
