SCANDAL, who celebrated their 10th anniversary, will release their long-awaited best album! All of them are memorable songs since the ones that will be on the two discs were decided by votes from fans.






All four members agree with the songs selected by the fan votes!

――Congratulations on your 10th anniversary!
All:「Thank you very much!」

――How do you feel looking back on these 10 years? I'm sure there have been many memories and hardships from your indie days until now.
HARUNA:「At the time of our debut we began from touching instruments. We still weren't good even after a year of doing our best day by day, and we couldn't even see a month or week ahead.」
MAMI:「For me, I think I was finally able to see how things would turn out when we made our major label debut.」
RINA:「Yeah, that's true. During our indie days we were playing lives every Sunday at 『Shiroten』, the mecha of Osaka street lives. After that our major debut was decided, we made CDs that were for sale in stores, appeared on TV, did interviews. As our circumstances rapidly changed, the switches in our hearts were changed up.」
TOMOMI:「As we did that, girls who 『began playing instruments』 and 『formed a band』 came into view. When those girls had their major label debut, I think of how I can feel the amount of 10 years and am glad that we've been able to continue until this point.」

――Releasing a best album in your tenth year was a surprise for the fans, wasn't it?
RINA:「That's right. A total of 36 songs, 34 songs voted for by the fans + 2 new songs, will be on two discs.」

――What do you think of the line-up chosen by the fans?
All:「We understand it! (laughs)」
MAMI:「Even though we play lives we've been able to confirm what songs are popular, and it's kind of like the fans' reactions and the words that listeners send to us daily through social media just as they are, were the results.」
RINA:「I'm glad we had the fans choose them. For example, we have a striking song called  『SCANDAL IN THE HOUSE』 where the four of us rap while introducing the members. I'm happy that such a playful song was voted for.」


Wanting to play lives that openly show off the 360 degrees of SCANDAL

――What kind of songs are the highly anticipated new tracks 「HELLO」 and 「FREEDOM FIGHTERS」?
RINA:「『HELLO』 is a winter song that will warm up the hearts of girls listening to it.」
MAMI:「Through trial and error I tried to find tones that would be good to express snow or winter via sound. I expressed them with bells and guitar delays while imagining winter scenery and giving it sounds.」
TOMOMI:「Actually, a year ago there was a time we were only making winter songs and we included the song 『SUKI-SUKI』 in our album 『YELLOW』. This time we picked 『HELLO』 from among those songs. These two songs are completely different despite being both winter songs, so you might have fun picking which one to listen depending on your mood, like, 『Which one should I listen to this winter?』.」
HARUNA:「We finished 『FREEDOM FIGHTERS』 right before doing the vocals for it.」
RINA:「We practically flew through recording it twice and really stuck to it; we felt like we could make it an even better song.」
MAMI:「When I received lyrics from RINA, sounds that were if they were calling out to me came forth from the words. But, in fact, it was really hard to get it to its current final form. I tried doing a very J-Pop-like tune and a youthful punk style. It was hard to come up with something, and this is what was squeezed out in the end. I thought of how we really should do something that we're good at and work through it. I was no longer in doubt after that.」

――These truly are SCANDAL-like songs. By the way, are you prepared for your 10th anniversary events?
RINA:「Yes, we'll be going on a tour of the 47 prefectures of Japan between March to July and are playing 53 performances! We'll be setting up a simple stage this time, and because we'll also be playing in small venues that have a 200-300 person capacity, we want to play lives that include many of our songs.」
HARUNA:「We're so hyped up for this. Ten years have passed since our days of singing while wearing school uniforms. We've also pruned off the ornamental parts and are able to live our lives while being relaxed. We'd like for people to see who we are now and who we'll be from here on, and we'd like for you to like us even more.」
RINA:「Our mindsets are rapidly solidifying and the outlines we want to set are clear. I think SCANDAL can be seen in many different ways precisely because we've done many kinds of songs. We want to play lives that openly show off the 360 degrees of us. We plan to change up the set list each time, so look forward to it!」

@ tge - I bought the Pia MUSIC COMPLEX Vol. 6 which has a Scandal interview in it which relates to their 10th ann. I was considering scanning it in, are there any stipulations regarding this?

We don't have any stipulations regarding magazines. Please feel free to go ahead and scan it, if you'd like! Happy

I think it would be awesome to see Scandal play in the small venues they're going to on their upcoming tour.

Interesting; it sounds like "Hello" was a song written during the Yellow sessions and "Freedom Fighters" was a song  the band fleshed out very organically during recording.  I'm glad they decided to go punk with Freedom Fighters. The ladies never cease to amaze and impress!
