Looks like they have issues with the 80s band of the same name when it comes to the merging of band property MVs on Youtube due to this Youtube official music/premium page. Maybe that's why Scandal MVs were removed. Hopefully it'll get re uploaded soon.

I guess it's related, the last albums (Hello World, Yellow, Honey) are no longer available on iTunes France since today... maybe they are changing record companies for record sales outside of Japan ?
Hmmm


Things are getting worse on iTunes ... everything is gone !?   Boom

yep and on (at least on the italian) Spotify only very few albums left.

I'm kind of mad tbh. All the step forward they've done are not gone and it's not a great news when they have schedule overseas.
I also checked some other artists' youtube channels that are under Sony and I can't find a similar issue. really mad.

It's closing in on ten years since they signed up with Sony. Could there be contract issues with Sony?
Very troubling

The same thing happen on Amazon Music... the best explanation is that they are changing record label

A few days ago, Haruna said on Instagram that the band had exciting projects for this summer... we'll probably have news soon

All that's left on Spotify (Philippines) are Temptation Box, Scandal Show, Haruka, and Shoujo S. If you have premium and already downloaded the files, it still works, though.

Is anything similar also happening with other SMEJ artists or is it just SCANDAL?

So to summarize...
Videos disappeared on Youtube. Albums disappearing on Deezer, Amazon, Spotify and iTunes..

I experimented with vpn on YT.. YT JP only has shunkan.. YT PH and most of europe still has shunkan, departure & awanai tsumorino.

Will they make an announcement regarding this or everything will be on the wraps?

Acording to this portalpop:
YouTube Will discontinue artists'Vevo channels to Send the subscribers to the Official artists' channel.
This is a way to give more resources to the artist, like YouTube Lives, better visualization.
(Sorry... Using cellphone xDD. )

Yes, that is correct, but they are still there for those who were relying on only seeing official videos off YouTube.  I haven't found as large a collection anywhere else.

This is wildly devastating news. I’ve grown to like Spotify as my go to music streamer but I’ll have to go back to google music (which is rumored to be on its way out) for my daily scandal needs.

Having access to their YouTube page was great too. Oh well...... 


I guess I’d like to shout out the sh team for keeping/making media available to us!

im actually the one who set that vimeo page up...I originally planned to delete it when they set up their youtube channel, but they kept region locking youtube so some people talked me out of it...and now this is happening.

man this is kind of worrisome. hopefully everything is okay.

Unsurprisingly, Scandal has also disappeared from Google Music...

That's so weird... it's just like the band did not exist outside of Japan 

Frustrated

I do not understand what they are trying to achieve through all these changes but I do not like where this is going. It's up to the artist to do whatever they want with their content, but it is still very frustrating to see all of your favorite music videos becoming not available any more.

I wonder if the band members are aware that there's all of this going on with their streaming channels. Especially considering that it seems counter intuitive in relation to all their international activities.

I don't know the reason behind it but I personally find it is a really weird timing to go through all the changes since there is two upcoming international tours this year. I would really appreciate it if there was any official statement about current situation by now but I guess I would just have to wait.

all sorts of issues that might / might not be relevant.. a couple of top management people have left US Sony Music/Epic.. Japan will soon sign on to the TPP trade agreement and USA not gonna be part of that.. and yeh, SCANDAL first signed with Sony/Epic just about ten years ago… HitenMitsurugi mentioned YouTube's new Vevo policy, wonder if other artists are reacting this way
• Question: what's the relationship between Sony/Epic Japan and Sony Music US? 
• Question: isn't Playstation, the Sept. 5 NYC venue for SCANDAL, owned by Sony Music US?
• Question: aren't distribution deals with Spotify, Amazon etc done by the label (Sony/Epic)?

I can answer your third question.  Yes, the label oversees the distribution and licensing deals.  

The artist will have little to no say in what happens with their content if they do not already own that content themselves.  It would be extremely rare for any young artist these days, especially one that signed a contract ten years ago on a major label, to have ownership of their master tracks.  With good legal assistance, some artists are able to gain ownership of their catalog, or future catalog, later in their career.  

Scandal was involved in the concept of how their 2-CD Best Of collection was compiled, so this tells me they have some kind of influence with their label; however I doubt they have the same amount of clout at this point to dictate to the label where and how their content is to be streamed.

In Germany there is only a chance to hear few albums. But better than nothing. My favourite band had a long time before nothing on spotify which is avaible in my country. This is typically Sony Music Japan. Others like Emi Records (Universal) are avaible worldwide

It's actually past the 10 year mark. They signed the record deal in April 2008 or earlier
