SCANDAL: The first confession of our true feelings we couldn't say until now

Four-piece all-girl band SCANDAL are celebrating their tenth year and released 「SCANDAL Pia」 on the 26th. In it, the four members discuss things they couldn't say until now.

This work is also thoroughly packed with the four members' thoughts about reaching their tenth anniversary and them taking the lead. Also included are gravure shots taken by photographer Ariko Inaoka, solo interviews where each member talks about their true feelings about "this 10th year" that have been revealed for the first time, talks together with the "people each of the members want to meet right now" and laying themselves bare through their music or hobbies, loving congratulatory comments from 19 groups, a frank roundtable discussion of untold stories from the staff, and completing the 100 Q&A questionnaire from the fans.

◆Each of their real feelings are revealed in their solo interviews

For HARUNA, there is a comment in her solo interview saying, 「Now, it has gotten easier to sing once more.」 Her "reasons for continuing." Her conversation partner is model Maggy. Giving work advice like sisters, their girls talk became lively.

In MAMI's solo interview, it's clear that she deeply analyzes herself through songwriting. She talks with designer Yoshie Itabashi, and she asks questions about "creating" while comparing her beloved fashion and music.

TOMOMI looked back on day-to-day struggles. She talked about her true feelings of "being young" for their song 「DOLL」. Her discussion with music senior Tavito Nanao, and they spoke in the "sense" of each being musicians.

◆A talk between the four members & congratulatory comments from 19 extravagant groups

The final pages are adorned with a talk between the four members. They start with talking about when they formed, and suddenly switch to their experiences on their overseas tours, the importance of their tour names, and their sense of responsibility as a gradually budding all-girl band. They also talk about welcoming their tenth year and about what they currently think of SCANDAL's future. Overcoming various things, they talk together with a natural air about them.
