Radio Rip of "STORY" - Wed Apr 11, 2018 4:20 pm

Here's a radio rip of about a minute and a half of "STORY," the song SCANDAL wrote for Airi Suzuki's upcoming solo debut album:

Airi: This was announced the other day, but my beloved SCANDAL even produced this song! I also had HARUNA sing harmonies. They also recorded the instruments―the four of them did everything, and this collaboration is on the album.

A bit long - 2018-04-09 (RINA) - Tue Apr 10, 2018 1:57 am

A bit long

We played lives in
Hiroshima and Tottori☺️
It went by in a flash? Finally?
We're also at the halfway point of the tour

We've heard stories about
How someone's been a fan for several years
But couldn't step into a live house...
When I see people
Who have brought their kids and come as a family
I think that we must continue doing
Our hall tour too
Halls and live houses
Really are completely different, and I love that☺️

Hiroshima is a city that we've aーlways been coming to to play lives
And feels like home,
While Yonago is a city we've been able to go to two years in a row,
And this time was the first time we had everyone see us at a hall.
A pleasant succession☺️

Also, I'm personally really happy
That people have been having fun
In a great atmosphere at each venue on this tour
It's because I truly believe with that a sense of unity with cooperation
We've been a band for 12 years☺️

I'm only one person
So I think there definitely are things
That I haven't kept an eye on,
But by conveying
That you have a heart
That wants to make a day great with everyone
Would probably make any artist happy
When standing on stage
You believe in the people in front of you
And even more so if they're your fans.
That's something very important that we're proud of

Every day there are probably all sorts
Of lives being held somewhere
But I hope that
Without taking away anyone's enjoyment
People will continue
To have time to properly receive and accept
Good feelings with music.

We got through another week,
And let's fully enjoy the second half of the tour
That starts from this weekend!
Those not able to come, check out our social media!
We won't leave you out☺️

Thanks for reading
This slightly long blog✌️

I apologize for not meeting your expectatations」

Candy Stripper Magazine, April 2018 - Fri Apr 06, 2018 2:07 pm

MAMI in the April 2018 issue of Candy Stripper Magazine

I like dresses that can smoothly be worn as a single piece! The collar and the ruffles make the design feminine, but I was drawn to how the navy color makes it look cool. I love styling things with pants, so a playful combination like this is one I'd want to enjoy.

Pizza dress: Summer makes me want to wear colors that pop.

Socks: The most optimal flashiness for a coordinate accent!

Will post the Q&A later.
SCANDAL TOUR 2018 "HONEY"|A hall tour they're delivering with the largest amount of self-confidence during the 10th anniversary of their major label debut

「SCANDAL TOUR 2018 "HONEY"」, SCANDAL's first hall tour in three years, commenced from March 3rd. This tour is in support of their newest album 「HONEY」 that was released in February, and they will be holding performances in various cities around the country appropriate for decorating their milestone marking the band's 12th anniversary and the 10th anniversary of their major label debut.

Music Natalie has planned some special features in commemoration of this tour. We headed to the third performance of the tour at Fukuoka Civic Hall in Fukuoka and snuck into the meet & greet that only lottery winners selected from au Smart Pass Premium/au Smart Pass members can participate in. We will be giving a report about SCANDAL meeting their fans right after finishing a live show and how to deepen exchanges, while also asking the members their thoughts on this tour.

The flow of meet & greets

A thrilling, exciting standby time

After the live, fans who won in the lottery arrive at appointed place by applying beforehand on the au Smart Pass or uP !!! official site. Immediately after enjoying SCANDAL's heated live, they move backstage while wiping off sweat with SCANDAL towels. Fans usually can't see much backstage, but there was also someone who said, 「I came here when I perfomred in the choral competition when I was a student, so it's really nostalgic!」 The winners arrived at the waiting room for the M&G and waited for the SCANDAL members to drop by.

When we greeted the winners, we found out that there were various SCANDAL fans ranging from those who attended a SCANDAL live for the first time as well as long-time SCANDAL fans. A girl who attends their Fukuoka performances every year said, 「I was so nervous I couldn't sleep last night. My heart's already pounding.」 A girl who has been supporting them for many years and attended a live for the first time after the timing never being right said excitedly, 「My SCANDAL-related luck exploded by coming here!」 A guy who came from Ehime enthusiastically said, 「They're a band I've been listening to since I started my band in middle school, and I still love them. I'm currently the head of my light music club in college. I'm super nervous, but I want to convey these emotions!」

Finally getting to meet them

SCANDAL, who just ended their live, said, 「Thanks for waitingー!」 and showed up to the room where the winners were waiting. The members' comments of 「Everyone's so refreshed, it doesn't seem like this is right after a live show!」, 「Did you have fun?」, 「That t-shirt really suits you!」 slightly got rid of the winners' nervousness. The winners spoke up and said, 「That was so much fun!」, 「So cuteー!」 When the staff gave them tour t-shirts with SCANDAL's autographs and told them that they'd be able to take a group picture with the band, the winners seemed not to be able to hide their surprise to the special content.

Signing time = time you're able to talk

After that, the members of SCANDAL autographed the tour t-shirts given to the winners. MAMI would confirm and write down the name of the winners, and after she signed her autograph, the other members also signed theirs. The winners talked to the SCANDAL members during this time. It was a fulfilling time where they couldn't help but smile while conveying their thoughts of the live and of meeting SCANDAL.

To be this close!?
Deeply moved by the group shot where they squeezed in together

Following the signing, the winners take a picture with the members of SCANDAL. When SCANDAL squeezes in closely from behind when taking the picture, the winners go, 「Eh, you're getting this close!?」 and are deeply moved. After taking a picture at a close enough distance as if they became a member of the band, the M&G ended. SCANDAL thanked the fans with, 「See you again at a live!」, 「Take care going home!」, and left the M&G location.

SCANDAL's interview

Finishing the M&G

──You've experienced M&G several times so far, but there aren't many opportunities to have a direct contact with fans. Was it a valuable time this time too?

TOMOMI: Being able to talk with the fans at this distance is a valuable opportunity. It made us really happy that everyone still had heat leftover from the live and told us their feelings.

HARUNA: Being able to talk with the people who come to our lives makes us happy. It was a lot of fun finding out things like how they came to know about us.

RINA: There aren't many opportunities to be able to directly hear their words not on social media but in person, and it felt very special to see everyone's expressions and to be able to talk to them.

MAMI: It was a valuable opportunity to know again that our work and performance have been proven to those who listened. When you directly hear their voices, it makes it seem like, 「Okay, let's work even harder.」

Absolutely do not miss this tour

──Since this was the M&G for the third performance of 「SCANDAL TOUR 2018 "HONEY"」, your tour in support of the album 「HONEY」 that was released in February, please tell us about the tour.

RINA: It's been 10 years since SCANDAL's major label debut, and 12 years have passed since the band formed, but we finally realized what we want to do. All of the members felt a 「This is the music that we must play」 kind of confidence for the first time. We had been envisioning the tour from the time of album production, so at each venue we're thrilled to see the scenery we had envisioned. Every time we really feel like we're getting energy from all of the fans.

HARUNA: With each performance on a tour we start to be able to show what we want to show on that tour, and it feels like it'll be completed by the final performances. However, this time it feels like we've been able to deliver our performance in its completed state from the first day this time. Some of our skills may have grown, but we realized that the power that the album itself has is amazing. We've been able to have more relaxed performances than usual. We feel comfortable doing it―rather, it feels really good to feel standing on the stage as we are.

MAMI: This is a tour where there's a sense of stability―rather, one where we feel relaxed and have challenged ourselves since the first day. That's because we had imagined our tour set and outfits from the album's production stage and decided 「We want to show it in this kind of way」. It's a tour that was finished smoothly from making the album. It feels like our self-confidence is at an all-time high.

──It's an important tour in SCANDAL's history.

HARUNA: That's right. Also, we think it's a tour that lets you know about us even more.

TOMOMI: It's been three years since we've done a hall tour, and three years ago we strongly felt that wanted to show it as an elaborate show. This time it feels like we acquired something that suits us the most and makes us more relaxed.

RINA: Like everyone else said, we can say 「Absolutely do not miss this tour」 with confidence. We think it's that kind of a tour.

Q:「TOMO-chan! You were magnificently dancing around merrily yesterday, but did you change your hair color? Is it blue? Maybe? Perhaps? 

TOMOMI:「It's now navy!」

Q&A for tonight:


Q. What do you think of people who have met through SCANDAL and gotten married?

All: Congrats on getting married! We'd be happy if you played a song of ours during the wedding!

TOMO: I want to perform at a wedding! I really would like to go to one...

RINA: Sony's pretty strict, though.
But our hearts go out to everyone!

Q. What songs did you think would be on the best album but didn't make it?

All: Maybe none? All of the ones we wanted to be on it are on it!

TOMO: We didn't think "SCANDAL IN THE HOUSE" would make it, but it did! We might not play it live anymore.

Q. You started being popular after starting the band, right? How many times have you been confessed to in a year?

MAMI: We had our major label debut and I thought that I'd be popular since I was next to an all-boys' school, but I wasn't lol

RINA: I was looking for attention, but I wasn't confessed to just because I spoke in Kansai dialect before I transferred schools

TOMO: Is that related?

HARU: TOMO was popular before the band started

Q. Have there been times when you had leave no matter what while in the middle of the live?

HARU: TOMO and RINA have.

TOMO: That was only one time!

HARU: That's a lie! The timing that TOMO has to use the bathroom sucks.

RINA: The fastener on the back of my outfit for our STANDARD tour broke and my back was fully exposed. HARU really stretched out the MC lol

Q&A for the previous show in Sano:


Q. Aside from your hometowns, which prefecture would you want to live in?

MAMI: Hokkaido! Because I love crab, melon, and squid! I also love snow!

TOMO: Of course! Right here! I don't think there's anywhere else besides Tochigi that'd I want to live in (big lie)
Because there are ramen, strawberries, and gyoza here!

Q. Will you no longer be performing "one piece" live?

RINA: Since this song is a special one, we'll only perform it when we play lives at Osaka-Jo Hall! If we play there again, we'll perform it! Wait for it!

Q. Are there keyboard sounds and/or other sounds being performed backstage?

RINA: Behind these red walls on stage are 500 people every time who are performing while packed in tightly! The depth is amazing!

HARU: That's a lie

RINA: It's true♡ We'll leave it to your imagination!

Q. Are there any things that your office prohibits/is a no-no for them?

HARU: Since we were tied to Bourbon (the candy company), we couldn't post about any other sweets brands on social media

RINA: When we were on Sashimeshi and had famous pancakes with cream, there was a take that didn't work out since mine was the one that didn't have any cream in it

TOMO: Also, in Europe... (forced termination, AKA they cut her off)

(HARU was still engrossed in the talk)
TOMO: Hurry up and put your guitar back on lolol

Thanks to everyone who came out
I found a to〜n of norimaki sushi rolls〜!
You're hungry after a live after all, right〜
A lady who stuffed her face with norimaki〜
My expression in the last picture is way too exquisite so I uploaded it〜
It's growing on me☺️
#These shiso leaf maki rolls
#were so delicious
#I wanted to eat all of them
#but I stopped myself
#I'm the type whose stomach expands
#It has Dyson-level
#suction power
#If I only suctioned things in
#I'd be fat
#so I'm holding myself back
#more or less
#I'll take care
#I'm not stoic
#but for the sake of soft-serve ice cream and shaved ice
#I'll hold myself back」

RINA:「Performance #7 at Sano Citizens' Cultural Hall Although it was our first time playing at a hall here, I'm really happy that we could be welcomed with the same amount of heat as a live house! I think this tour is one where we are able convey the enjoyment of halls. Thanks for coming☺︎」

From snow to sakura - 2018-03-23 (RINA) - Fri Mar 23, 2018 7:02 pm

From snow to sakura

We toured around Sendai, Morioka, and Sapporo☺️
Thanks to everyone who came!
It was still cold outside〜
Snow was still falling

Sakura have begun to bloom in Tokyo

I love touring
While seasons are changing
I'll go and take a proper picture again
(...I wonder if I'll make it in time)

The key case that's part of our tour goods
Is way too cute, and I've been using it
Since it was completed; it's my favorite☺️
It's a deep green, and I recommend it to men
And adults too

Our northern Kanto trip begins tomorrow
Yepー, I can't wait☺️︎ Best regardsー!

All right, time to pack and pack

We made a cool song where you can fully enjoy Airi-chan's vocal ability☺️︎ I'm happy she let us write her a song at this timing of her taking an important step forward!

"STORY," with accompanying footage of them in the studio can be heard and viewed in the trailer for the "band side" of Airi's album (from 0:32):

Here's my English translation for "STORY":

Lyrics: RINA ~ Music & Arrangement: MAMI

Why do I feel empty
In this city in my hands?
The always advancing hands of the clock
Press against my back and leave me breathless

"You can still do it - stand up
It'll be okay," you say
Every time I'm shown kindness and it makes me want to cry
You're there

I've jumped over the limits and made it to today
It's not a lie
I met you who loves me
No matter what
I want to overtake this distance and protect you
No matter what happens
Our distorted footprints are stories no one can take away
I want to move forward with you tomorrow too

I'll go back to the pages I skipped over
And underline them so that I won't forget
Your voice fills the gaps in my heart
Because there no such thing as a single correct answer

"You can still do it - stand up
There's still much more you want to show"
You're with me
As I grow selfish in this dream I can't wake up from

I want to see you over and over again, and the same goes for today
It's enough to make me laugh
No one else can take your place
You're precious to me
Let's cut away these moments and change
The best story is where time passes
And makes us want to cry when we look back
I want to create that kind of future with you

I'll pray for something
On the stars falling through the sky I looked up to
Because the tears from that day make "right now" shine

I've jumped over the limits and made it to today
It's not a lie
I met you who loves me
No matter what
I want to overtake this distance and protect you
No matter what happens
Our distorted footprints are stories no one can take away
I want to move forward with you tomorrow too

SCANDAL: 「It makes us happy as adult women that we completed this work this year, the 10th anniversary of our major label debut」

HARUNA: I feel that we had written lyrics with the consciousness of the band SCANDAL rather than us as individuals until now. However, we were able to frankly put forth our feelings as women with this work. This change gave us more self-confidence.

MAMI: We were able to make music we want to make right now. We were able to find our individualities and apply them to our songs. We're so satisfied!

The female image of having both beauty and sharpness is included in the title 『HONEY』. Realistic psychological depictions stand out in lyrics.

TOMOMI: There are many songs on which you can feel temperature or body temperature. We included personal feelings that weren't passed through filters. I'm happy as a 27-year-old woman who was able to make this work at this timing of our 10th year after making our major debut in school uniforms.

RINA: We had always been thinking about how we should express ourselves in the world that is dominated by men. We decided to fight using weapons unique to women instead of being the same as male bands. Just because we're a band doesn't mean that we want to get rid of our femininity. In that sense as well, this time we shook free and made some music!

This work, produced with thoughts of, 「Let's make an album with momentum」, is gushing with energetic sensuality.

MAMI: 『Electric Girl』, which begins with onomatopoeia lyrics "BI-BI-BI," has a buzzing melody and arrangement (laughs). I created it instinctly while playing around freely with my instruments, as it calls for it in RINA's lyrics.

RINA: The lyrics suddenly came to mind when I was heading home in a taxi from the studio. Our previous album 『YELLOW』 was a very relaxed album, but those reactions may have created chemical-like songs!

TOMOMI: With 『Mado wo Aketara』, I made the hazy feelings I had in my heart three years ago into lyrics. I asked my friend Mizuki Masuda from Negoto to arrange it. There hadn't been many times I created music with my friends, so this was very exciting.

Reactions spread out from the words of the members. Their way of thinking about music has also changed from when they initially had their major label debut.

HARUNA: Until now, by supporting someone with our music, we had them support us back. However, in addition to that, I noticed in this work that there are songs that make our hearts lighter simply by listening to them.

TOMOMI: We make message songs with thoughts of, 「We want to convey this」, but sometimes feelings change before you know it. But, our mood now is wanting to make personal songs that we can keep singing forever.

RINA: On top of playing music, it's also important to have time to do things other than music. The times when we're being a band is the number one thing that won't change, though!

MAMI: The bare necessities of life (food, clothing, and shelter) and music are closely related.

All members realize the importance of maintaining "a body that can keep on playing music."

RINA: When your mental state is good, the sound of the drums will also sound good. Also, just by applying ice to your limbs for 10 minutes at a time after a live completely changes how your condition will be the following day.

TOMOMI: Since you need power in your arms to play the bass, I've started bouldering, which I had been interested in. It's a lot of fun!

MAMI: In addition to running that started with a full marathon appearance, I also do kickboxing, which is not affected by weather.

HARUNA: Your voice is an instrument of your body, and mentality is the most important thing. I have stabilized mentally since establishing a daily routine of running. My voice training teacher praised me for naturally filling my lower abdomen used for vocalization with power, and that's thanks to running.

Sapporo, Hokkaido @ Wak Wak Holiday Hall - March 21st

Performance #6 of 23

Sunlight is reflecting off of the snow, and it's dazzling〜

RINA:「Performance #6 at Sapporo Wak Wak Holiday Hall It was such a hot night, wasn't it〜. Thanks! It seems like it got 30 degrees hotter inside, haha. So awesome! Ah, it was so much fun〜☺︎」

HARUNA:「Thanks, Sapporo Love

MAMI:「in Sapporo

#I came to like salmon kimchi too
#I also love snow
#I love ramen salad
#I love zangi
#I also love chikuwa pan
#I love all of them
#Hokkaido love

Here's the Q&A from tonight, which was apparently a barrage of questions directed at TOMO:


Q: TOMO, where are you looking during interviews?

A: Probably looking at the interviewer

Q: TOMO, aren't you going to start an Instagram?

A: Since I'm being questioned today whether I will or not, I'll think about it (doesn't seem like it)

Also, here's the Q&A from Morioka, which included a question people have been asking quite often recently:


Q: What's the reason you don't do dual vocals on songs anymore?

TOMO: If I do say so myself, I have a unique, candy-like voice, don't I?

HARU, RINA: Many songs sing about the feelings of one person, so singing it with two people will make it feel like there's a split personality going on.

RINA: It would have been awesome if "Platform Syndrome" was sung with dual vocals, though.

Q: Have you been hit on at places like a music festival?

RINA: I think if someone asks you, "Do you want to go to the wine bar?" is considered being hit on?

TOMO: A guy who invites you to a wine bar is simply lame.

RINA: There was also a time when we were getting changed in Indonesia and a paper with contact information flew down from above.

HARU: There's been times when I've been given someone's contact info while on a train.

Q. What troubling presents have you been given by fans?

MAMI: Opened bottles of 1 liter aloe juice came for a while

RINA: They'd make a magazine for RINA and send it monthly with the person's face on the back cover (came with a bonus too)

TOMO: A stuffed animal with something sticky on it [ can probably guess what it was]

HARU: A sticky, opened CD of an idol she didn't know about

Additionally, here's the Q&A from Sendai:


Q: If you could become another member of the band, who would you want to become?

TOMO, HARU, MAMI: We probably wouldn't want to become anyone? There's no need for that!

RINA: I don't think I'd want to become anyone, but if I were to, I'd want to become everyone!

Q: If you weren't in SCANDAL, what job do you think you'd have?

MAMI: I had wanted to be an architect since I was 3 years old.

RINA: Something music related! I had thought that I could appear on TV if I went behind it, so I'd dance by myself behind the TV.

TOMO: I wanted to be Sailor Moon when I was 3.

HARU: I would have become a useless member of society if I wasn't in SCANDAL!
