SCANDAL:「All-girl bands don't have short shelf lives」 - Thoughts they experienced in their tenth year

An interview talking with SCANDAl about 「We want to show a long-lasting coolness as an all-girl band」!





SCANDAL, who sprinted through the year of their tenth anniversary, have released their best album. Its name is 『SCANDAL』, with songs voted for by the fans. It bears a self-title with ten years of their thoughts in it.

「We really understand the songs selected by the fans. The songs we play live and that you can feel resonate with everyone and are the top ranked--the songs that we want people to listen to have been chosen. It's a best album that encompasses our ten years and with which you can enjoy the 360 degrees of SCANDAL.」 (RINA)


This two-disc volume that includes two new songs added to the selection of best songs has plenty of heat. The evolution of the band from making their debut in school uniforms to holding a world tour is conveyed.

「I've had hardships in singing as a vocalist, but what broke me out of that was 『LOVE ME DO』. It made me feel like I was able to meet a new me by boldly changing the way I sing--it's a song that made singing fun again. I'd like to increase my expressive power even more in our eleventh year.」 (HARUNA)

「Since we started from not being to play instruments at all, it was fun to gain new knowledge each day during time we first formed. The first song 『SCANDAL BABY』 was the first time we challenged ourselves to doing "octave playing." It was the most "me"-like playing style I've ever done.」 (TOMOMI)



As you can see, the songs that set each member aflutter are also included in the best album.

「The four of us realized the delight in playing instruments, and it feels like those impluses just kept continuing on. When other girls were enjoying youth, we only had the band. But, that doesn't make us feel sad at all (laughs). We ran with that these past ten years. I would like to broaden my horizons even further and hope to walk onwards as an adult.」 (MAMI)


The four of them say that SCANDAL is youth itself. Opposite to the side where they've endured many things, there's no doubt that the accumulating experiences that only they could do and seeing the scenery that no one else sees is a happy thing for them.

「I still only think of the band. Although it's said that all-girl bands have a short shelf life, I've really felt a long-lasting coolness to us. That's why I want to take on all kinds of things as much as I can.」 (RINA)


They will begin their 47 prefecture tour soon, with lives diligently continuing on until mid-July. On stage you'll be able to see these four who have grown into adulthood.

I am hoping they have an even better next 10 years and continue to spread their popularity throughout the world. I wish them good health and happiness Happy

They had a promotion on CDJapan where if you bought older select albums starting Feb 15th, until quantities lasted they would throw in a clear folder. I had no idea what that was but I ordered Temptation Box, Scandal Show, Queens are Trumps and Scandal Standard and ended up getting 4 of the folders. They are 12" X 9 " with a promotional pic of the 4 members on one side and album art on the other Happy Pretty cool Happy
