Oooh, for some reason not at all what I was expecting. I suppose I was expecting it to be... blacker. But hours of fun ahead for me analysing what it all means...

guys...i hope someone that will be reading this will be in contact with you or velvet hammer or interscope etc....I'm totally supportive of the music you guys are creating and that is the most important element of the band but this art work is TERRIBLE?! It looks so unprofessional?!!! I can't wait until the album is released but this artwork is such a let down, please, if it isn't too late...change it!!!!!!!
check out the SOADFans forums discussing the artwork...95% of people on there agree with me (http://www.soadfans.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t-22826-postdays-0-postorder-asc.htm)....and i know it has no impact on the music...but I just feel anyone who hasn't heard your music will ignore it in a shop because of how cheap the artwork looks?!

i like the colors. very interesting cover.
i'm so pumped for the album!!

scrantonicity said...

You guys have amazing music.
But the cover looks like a half assed photoshop job done by a six year old.
PLEASE, change it!
It doesnt even look real, it looks...fake.
:(
dissappointing

slasher said...

I agree, I don't like the cover much. But I like the meaning of it.

Pete said...

It's shit. Change it

SubNoiZe said...

I have to say that I am disappointed with the album cover. I don't really know what I was expecting, but it certainly isn't this. This "artwork" is just flat-out ugly. It's over-saturated, and looks like it was made by someone who just bought photoshop.
Please reconsider.

ADDdiscardsxlife said...

Sorry Scars but... this album fucking sucks. I am begging you guys to change it, i would prefer to see some artwork by Vartan but anything other than this would be better to be honest...

Cigaro said...

Daron, we love your band.. We love your music.. We hate your cover.. PLEASE reconsider making such a bad decision

serjtankianfan55 said...

You guys are awesome, but i'm afraid i have to agree with these other people and say that this album art is not really good. If you can, change it to something that looks better.. thanks.

iamthelolrus said...

I must say that I am dreadfully dissapointed with the album cover. It looks like crap. I can't even believe its a real cover.

Please, get Vartan to do it.
Please.

i am, i am said...

this cover is god awful
it looks like it was made by a 3 year old
the bright (shitty) colors hurt my eyes.

if anyone saw this in a record store they would laugh and walk the fuck away.

Travis said...

The album cover is VERY disappointing. I honestly thought it was a joke when I first saw it.

PLEASE consider changing it, or have a contest to let a fan design one for you.

Hadi said...

eh, looks like crap... i'll still pick it up though!

david said...

hey guys plz change the album cover it's just awful

Dan said...

Guys,

I love your band, your music and your message, but I just can't stand the album cover. Please, please change it. But, don't change the music!

=)

guitaristchase1 said...

Hey Daron and John,
I just have to say, I'm stoked for your music but... I think you should really change the album art, so people won't think its very cheap looking and just ignore it.

You guys rock!

eatURmusic said...

It's not the album art that matters, it's the music people. So calm the fuck down.

Isaac said...

You bunch of stupid fucks

this is their work...i think you should respect it no matter what...
if this is the cover they created its because they identefy the album as the cover...

aside that... i really hope the album is a good contribucion to the music of today... =)

limitbreaker13 said...

Awesome single. Your cover looks like linkin park, are you happy?

Krzysiek said...

i am in LA this holiday (i'm from poland), and daron and john- be there i must to see you! :P

oh yeah :P maybe you're looking for the singer or growler? ;) i left my soad-covering band on tuesday, so i have plenty of time :D:D

shavo lover said...

ppl stop these hate comments!

if u look deply its a gr8 album cover .. look at it deeply i think the cover is amazing...

think good before posting any bad comments about the album cover

today i checkedthe album cover pic and i liked it really...as daron always says he likes changes he cant always stick to his fathers (vartans) art works ,he likes changes...

and if u look carefully to the picture u will understand what it means... i liked it really it has a deep meaning.. in my idea i think it shows the wars around the worlds the blood stains all over the places ,,,and the tv represents the media and the wars and fightings taking place nowadays that we see it from the t.v. ,,,and if u notice on the left side of the t.v. there are switch like buttons which looks like eye , the upper one is eye with a small pupil (which represents ppl who dont care about thos horrible events )

and the one below is an eye but with a big pupil (the pupil becomes big after a shock or when the adrenaline rises and it represent about the ppl who are shocked from the horrible events)
and by watching all the horrors ,wars,bombings thats happening and showing from the t.v.

thats how i saw the cover and i really liked it! its such a deep cover!

and ppl no need to get that much angry whats important is the music and not the cover!cheel! daron and john love u guys! u should come to lebanon for a concert! we love u here! (sry for my huge cooment)

Dávid said...

i think, i can make better cover... this cover is terrible, pls. change it!!! but i hope , the songs are better. i can't wait, BUT I CANT LIVE WITHOUT SYSTEM OF A DOWN!!!!!PLEASE LETS play together again !!!
[i dont speak very good english, so if i wrote anything wrong, than sorry]

Cigaro said...

Please change it, or at least it so you can acknowledges what the fans of your music have to say... At least let us know our opinions matter by saying something in response.... Do we as the fans of the music matter at all?

Yerbatized! said...

Yeah, I can definitely live without the cover, but I sure as Hell can't live without the music! After seeing the Weenie Roast webcast I'm totally pumped for July 29! Any possibility of a deluxe edition being released on the same date?

Emma said...

this is like an elementary school kid's finger-painting in photoshop form. With too much posterization effect. HORRID! lets get some meaningful artwork on this and really show what the music is all about? yes?

ADDdiscardsxlife said...

I'm sure if some people not knowing who you were would pick up your album, look at it, flip it over, and set it down. It's just not appealing. The colors are nothing the physical appearance of the band has shown so far, so far we've seen blacks and whites, not reds and yellows, it contradicts your whole look and style. The cover itself looks like some person used the clone stamp for a tv and a person and photoshop, messed up a few times, and added some brushes at random areas, not too appealing. You don't have to change the whole cover (although that would be nice) but i'm suggesting you at least change the color to black and white and the logo back to white, it's more of the scars look. ;) If you actually read this i would be surprised.

Cigaro said...

you people are truly idiotic.. The album art doesn't matter??? That's the kind of statement that somebody who has no principals in music says.. The guy living in his parents basement and listens to music all day... So if that's you.. Why would I expect you to think the cover is important... But for those of us who care about every aspect of the record... ;-) -- Jesus, he could have a picture of a bloody tampon and you guys would be like "GIVE IT A REST!"

tyguy2021 said...

I will still buy it, but thats a ugly cover.

Connor,Casey,Chazz said...

honestly the cover is pretty weird,but that doesnt matter. its the songs that matter.

Vialo Jubis said...

Scars is going to be a good band, with all good songs, like System always did. Your new song is sweet, have it on my Zune!

Anyways, SoB, I love you two to death, but please, the cover art concerns me much, it's really lacking theme and the colors are not used in a proper function if you ask me. Yall can do better!

sadstatue0424 said...

I think the cover is amazing, and I think Scars on Broadway is amazing. If you are reading these comments, I sincerely hope you shake off all the hatred from some of these posts - never doubt for a second what you're capable of and how you've changed the world with your music. I look foward to July.

JJ said...

I really don't care about album covers. As long as the music is good who gives a shit what the cover looks like. If somebody walks into the stor and sees a shitty album cover and walks away because of that, they are a moron. I think the cover looks alrite myself. Keep up the good work. You guys rock.

Arthur said...

Please, change this cover... your music is great, but this cover really sucks!

ADDdiscardsxlife said...

The cover obviously means a lot, because if it didn't why would we still use them? Somebody dare to prove me wrong.

Wicked sweet....i luv u daron!!!!!

SOADChick said...

I know this is totally off topic, but, is it true that Daron Malakian and Jessica Miller are expecting a child in August, and are they even still together.....

hipothead said...

ukraine wants you to change the cover

Renee said...

Its so not anyone elses business about Daron or anyone else in SCARS private life. And as for all the criticism on their choice of album cover, I dont think any of you have any right asking them to change it. Its THEIR work of art. Grow up people
