The robotics facility Grand Front Osaka, located in the Umekita district of Osaka, will open its doors on April 26. The band will be working with Robi, a robot designed by Tomotaka Takahashi, to create a new song and music video.
The new song is set to debut in late July when SCANDAL and Robi will perform the song for the first time at Grand Front Osaka.
"I think Osaka will become an even greater city. A lot of people move to Tokyo to make their dreams come true, but I'm certain Osaka will become an area overflowing with opportunities. I was born in Osaka and made a band in Osaka. It will always be a special place," band member Rina Suzuki wrote on her blog.
