Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. And You? album cover was a source of some controversy, since it was lifted from a World War II Nazi recruiting poster. It was not the first time members of the band (most of whom were Jewish) had been associated with charges of this sort since Go Girl Crazy had featured the songs "Master Race Rock" and "Back to Africa. By the 1990s, much about the lives of the band's members had changed markedly. Shernoff recorded and toured with The Fleshtones in 1989 and 1990, wrote and recorded with The Ramones, became a successful record producer and worked as a sommelier.
The songs that make up Dictator – itself the very belated follow-up to SOB’s self-titled 2008 debut – stretch back to 2012. The guitarist has been sitting on them ever since, unwilling to step on System’s toes while simultaneously being just as confused as the rest of us as to what the hell was going on with his own band. He’s evidently decided enough is enough, and set Dictator free from whatever sound-proofed cellar he’s been keeping it in for the last half-decade. It’s not hard to read Dictator as a sly ‘fuck you’ to his on-off bandmates, or at least the ones holding up a potential album. It’s evident in their grand rebranding – they’re no longer just Scars On Broadway, but now ‘Daron Malakian And Scars On Broadway’, a definite ‘Who Needs You Guys Anyway?’ statement.
The original Terminals are a moody, swampy, dark rock band from New Zealand. The early Terminals releases are fairly poppy (. Frozen Car"), though the darkness begins to emerge with "Disconnect" and then dominates subsequent releases on Xpressway, Raffmond, and Siltbreeze.
The Great Dictator is a 1940 American political satire comedy-drama film written, directed, produced, scored by, and starring British comedian Charlie Chaplin, following the tradition of many of his other films. Having been the only Hollywood filmmaker to continue to make silent films well into the period of sound films, this was Chaplin's first true sound film.
Dictator is again a one-man affair, with Malakian covering all of the instruments and vocals (check out an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the sessions below). Malakian tells Billboard the 12-track set was actually recorded six years ago, but he was holding out hope that SOAD would decide to do something, which led him to hold the album so it wouldn't interfere with the band. It's been tough not releasing music - and it's not because I didn't want to release music," Malakian explains. The lead single "Lives" references Armenian culture's achievements in the wake of the devastating early 20th century genocide (proceeds are being donated to the Armenia Fund). But Malakian hopes that other songs feel open to interpretation.
