Yomiuri Shimbun's "MAKE A WISH DAISY PROJECT" interview with RINA


Staying at home, but what if being at home isn't safe for everyone? Support for women survivors of domestic violence


Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 16 20211021-OYT8-I50019-1




Simple pajamas with white piping accents on chocolate-colored satin. There is a modest message on the back of the neck: "Proceeds will be donated to organizations that support women in need and people living as a family."



Requesting assistance via crowdfunding in return for pajamas

Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 16 20211021-OYT8-I50017-1


Last year, RINA and her friend+model Seina started "MAKE A WISH DAISY PROJECT." The first thing they worked on was the production of these pajamas. "There are of course cases when you need to communicate this subject in a serious manner. But for us, we wanted this to be a non-serious entryway into it, to incorporate it into your daily life and be fashionable. Also, to make it something that reminds you of the support you're giving."

In return for pajamas and requesting support via crowdfunding, over 7 million yen (~$62,000 USD) was collected in a month and a half starting from last December. After deducting the cost of materials, they donated about 1.29 million yen (~$11,300 USD) in August of this year to two organizations that support women survivors of domestic violence, single mothers, fathers, etc. Since then, they have been selling original T-shirts and other items on their online store.

RINA met Seina via a vintage fashion store she used to frequent. They hit it off, sharing an interest in clothing as well as many other similarities. They met up once a week, chatting at cafes and going shopping, and learned that they were both troubled by their family situation. "I wish I could do something for those who are in the same situation as me." During the time they were frequently discussing those thoughts, the pandemic hit.

"We were ordered to stay home, but I thought of how being at home wasn't safe for everyone. There's a different danger aside from the virus. This made me realize that if we continued to live our lives normally, I would have never thought of that," said RINA, looking back on last spring. Seina also thought the same. The two of them agreed that if they were to do something, now would be the time.



Struggling alone as a child, thinking, "Why is my family the only one all jumbled up?"

Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 16 20211021-OYT8-I50018-1


RINA was raised as the eldest daughter of five siblings in a single-mother family. Her mother remarried, but her relationship with the other man hurt her mentally. It was tough seeing her mother like that. "How can I protect her? I want to make my mother happy," is what she always thought. At the age of 15 she started her dream of working in music. However, when she was working, phone calls from her mother would shake her up—it was all she could do to keep her composure. Naturally, her mother was unable to attend live performances.

In her second year of high school, her dream of making a major debut came true and she moved to Tokyo. As her siblings bawled, she felt guilty that "I was the only one who got away." Strengthening her resolve, she told herself, "I'll make sure to succeed and give back to my family," and has continued to support her family financially. Smiling gently, she said, "Of course this is a job that I want, and I like being in a band—it's so much fun. But I think I've been able to make it this far without stopping because I had my family [to worry about]."

"I kept wondering why my family was the only one that's all jumbled up." - She recalled her childhood as she struggled alone without being able to talk to anyone about it. "I wonder how much it could have helped me if back then my favorite musician told me that there are families like mine."

She was also conflicted to share things that weren't related to music. However, now that fans can feel closer to artists via social media, she felt that she might be able to get closer to the fans. Additionally, another reason was that her relationship with the band's fans changed close to her late 20s.

SCANDAL launched its own imprint label within its record company [Victor Entertainment] three years ago. They began promoting more independent activities. "We can now tell our fans what we're worried about. We're able to make music as human beings, while also showing negative aspects. I feel that our fans are also speaking to us as fellow human beings." Feeling this warm support, she thought she'd be able to launch this project now. She puts all of her strength into it: "I've received fan letters that say things like, 'I'm actually in the same boat.' I've also come into contact with people who are learning about this kind of topic for the first time. It really feels like things are being conveyed."



"Because I have my three other band members...being a solo act would have been absolutely impossible for me"

Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 16 20211021-OYT8-I50020-1


SCANDAL played at a live music club in Odaiba, Tokyo on the third of this month. They performed cool and cute songs one after another, such as danceable songs and songs with strong rock themes to them. RINA could be seen surrounded by the members, hitting the drums powerfully. It's been 15 years since the band formed. Her three bandmates understood her situation and gently supported her. They also support this current project from the bottom of their hearts. A cozy place can be found right here. "Being with these three always makes me excited and happy. We're good matches for each other as human beings. I've made it these past 15 years because I've got these three. Being a solo act would have been absolutely impossible for me."

Her family situation had always been a complex for her, but recently she's been able to gradually start accepting it. There are thoughts and problems she is able to notice due to having experience in that area. The amount of support still isn't that big yet, but she feels that the responses are moving forward. "I'm sure there are people who are suffering and wondering if their current situation will keep continuing. I want to continue doing this for a long time so that these people know they're not alone."



"Live the way you want to, without denying anyone"

Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 16 20211021-OYT8-I50016-1


We asked RINA about her personal tastes.


――The appeal of drums

The way your feelings will come out in the sound. If you're in a bad mood, you won't be producing any fun sounds. I started doing it and found out that it suits me.



――Words she cherishes

"Live the way you want to, without denying anyone." I've always cherished this in my musical activities. It's the feeling that the four of us feel comfortable doing what we like.



――How she refreshes herself

Watching thrilling, slightly scary movies or anime. I like the fear of something feeling bizarre and mysterious.



――Favorite fashion items

Incorporating vintage items. Most of them are from Europe. A lot of my interior items are antiques purchased at flea markets.

We played a joint concert with Vaundy
At Zepp Fukuoka yesterday!
It was such a fun night
Where crazy chemical reactions that were much more crazy than we had imagined◎

He gave us a great performance, songs, and concert,
Which made us so happy.
Having a setlist full of hit songs made it so much fun^^

Last week in Tokyo we went to see Vaundy live
For the first time,
And he showed us a performance
That has both the charm unique to solo artists and the amount of heat equal to a band's,
So in the car on the way back we quickly changed our setlist...haha
We challenged ourselves for the finale of our joint-band tour!
Ah, it also made us happy that he said he really likes "one more time"
And praised us for it...
We're the type of people who excel by being praised^^

Looking back, we've never had anything like
Likes/dislikes or borders when it comes to music;
We thought everything was cool...
That in itself is impressive...
We've been making music while being influenced by various things.
We're happy that we were able to perform with our favorite artists in this way,
And that everyone was able
To experience what we like.
Also, all of the artists praised our fans!

I think this time too we put on a joint-band tour
That only we are able to do^^
Thank you to everyone for making time for these concerts
Amidst your busy schedules.
Let's see each other again!

We returned to Hiroshima for the first time in forever〜!
Thank you so much
To everyone who came out on this Friday night〜!

Yesterday we played our first joint band show
With Chiaki Sato-chan.
We're good friends with her,
And thanks to that
We had asked her to arrange our song
"NEON TOWN ESCAPE"
On our previous album,
And thanks to that connection we got to arrange "Ivory"
With Kouhei Munemoto-san,
Who plays keyboards in Chiaki-chan's backup band...

We're happy we got to spend a great night in Hiroshima
With an artist with whom we have many connections to!
A beautiful singing voice and a delicate live performance...
Her MCs were full of love and made us super happy.

This was also a special day
On which we got to talk plenty to each other about
Music, instruments, and performances. So stimulating.

Also, yesterday,
2021.10.22,
Was the 13th anniversary of our major debut^^
We're so busy every year in August and October around our anniversaries haha
For SCANDAL currently,
It is the 15th anniversary of our formation & the 13th anniversary of our debut.

Our anniversaries are such that we can just be at a live music club
And, in a good way, things will be going smoothly.
We're pretty casual about it, like, "Oh yeah, it's today!"
It's kind of nice to have peaceful proof.

Thank you for always keeping an eye on us〜!

【Translated Summary】
『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Episode 85

•The episode starts with this. After HARU reads the penguin story, a staffer asks them if it's related to SCANDAL since Venus is part of the lyrics in their song "Space Ranger." They laugh and HARU goes, "You mean we were involved in alien business ever since we first formed?" The staffer says that they're being contacted by Venus; TOMO goes, "Through penguins?" HARU chuckles and says that it's crazy that penguins might be aliens. TOMO says that that would make her heart skip a beat if that was true. MAMI wonders how they came here. HARU says there must be a reason why they'd come here. MAMI says that they weren't as cute as they are, they may have been targeted. RINA agrees and says that being cute = likely to be safer. TOMO says that she's looking forward to finding out more info about this. RINA wonders if it'll be figured out in their lifetime. HARU says that it's possible that the penguins here right now aren't necessarily aliens. There's a pause before TOMO asks her what she means. She goes, "The first penguins that came were aliens..." TOMO laughs at the 'first penguins' part but gets what she's trying to say, that penguins from the second gen onwards would technically not be aliens. MAMI says that supposing penguins were originally from Earth, it's possible that the beings from Venus came and thought they could blend in if they changed their appearance to that of penguins (HARU: "We were invaded!"). RINA says that the penguins in aquariums see all these people taking pictures of them and saying they're cute, and they're probably thinking, "Heh." They all laugh and TOMO says that's like Pingu. The staffer says Pingu must be an alien. The band agrees, and TOMO talks about how Pingu was everywhere when she was little and was even on stuff like insurance files. HARU says that it's kind of suspicious how Pingu doesn't talk, even after having an animated series about him, which the others agree with.

•HARU then mentions how British astronaut Helen Sharman had mentioned in an interview that aliens exist and could already be here on Earth. After she reads more details about the astronaut, RINA says that the feelings of someone who's actually been to space are probably the closest we have to having a correct answer. TOMO says there's a possibility some people could be aliens without knowing it, since you don't retain memories from when you're born. RINA and TOMO think that there definitely have to be aliens here on Earth. RINA says that's mysterious humans exist, after all. TOMO says that humans are probably also aliens of a sort. MAMI thinks within the entire universe there are probably very few humanoid beings. TOMO asks if that means we're lagging behind. MAMI says yes, and that there could be 100 different types of aliens and only 10% are humanoids. She also says that other ways we might be lagging behind are things like using our mouths to eat and talk, and that the human race still causes painful things to happen. TOMO wonders if there are planets where there are no conflicts/fighting and says that Earth is definitely behind on that regard. HARU agrees that we're probably behind on communicating--she and TOMO say there are probably ways of communication that exist where you can convey your thoughts in an instant, like telepathy. RINA says that everyone's pretty knowledgeable about these things, which they laugh at. HARU says that they like things like this.

•Next, they talk about UFOs and stuff mentioned in this article. MAMI goes, "Isn't that that Roswell incident?" She says that the army found a UFO and recovered it but didn't inform the public about what they possibly discovered. HARU says that it's okay if you do or don't believe this, but she's seen a UFO before. MAMI goes, "No way!" A staffer goes, "Come on now!" HARU says that she doesn't know if it was a UFO, but at the time she did think that aliens had arrived on Earth. This incident apparently happened at her home. TOMO says that she saw the video HARU took of it and it definitely looks like something UFO/alien-ish. RINA asks if that means she caught a UFO on camera. HARU laughs and says no, and that this happened late at night at her current place in Tokyo. RINA is super surprised at this and goes, "This was recent, then!" HARU says that this happened maybe about two years ago. She was about to go to bed and turned off all the lights. It was also dark outside so it made her place pitch black. However, a light suddenly started went off. She thought it might have been lightning but it wasn't. The light suddenly came from outside and was bright enough to illuminate the entire room--this happened about three times in an irregular pattern. She thought it was weird, and looking outside she noticed there was a spot that was emitting light irregularly and took a video of it. She says it was super bright but wasn't like the light of fireworks nor something like a flashlight. RINA asks if the light was moving. HARU says no and that it stayed in one place. She thought it was pretty mysterious, though no one else had mentioned anything about it to her in the days that followed. But when she talked to her mom and told her about what happened, her mom said that she saw that same light the previous day. At that time her mom was walking the dog in a place where there weren't many street lights. She then saw a really bright light around the tops of houses and thought that it might start raining so she decided she should go home. The rain never came, however, and she once again saw the light shining again near the tops of houses. It made HARU go, "Ehh??" TOMO says that someone's trying to tell her family something. She also asks HARU if she checked Twitter to see if others were talking about it. HARU says there weren't.

•TOMO then talks about how her friend who was at a music production studio by Mount Fuji took a video of a light that was moving very weirdly and very fast in the sky. It wasn't an airplane and it was moving in really weird angles. She says that Mount Fuji is one of those supernatural places along with Kyoto where nine-tailed foxes are said to be, and who some of her friends claimed to have seen before. She says she's never seen stuff like this herself, though, and then says, "I guess I'm not an alien." MAMI says that she's also never seen anything but her mom has. She says that her mom tells her basically every day at the same time stuff like, "I saw something flying! I saw this light!", though it doesn't seem to have happened lately. Since everyone else is sharing these kinds of stories, RINA seems pressured to say something. She says that she's never seen any aliens. MAMI says she's never seen any either, and TOMO says so as well and that she'd like to make contact with one one day. RINA says that aliens probably aren't bad. TOMO says that like how there are all kinds of humans, there must be all kinds of aliens. RINA asks what they would do if they met an alien. TOMO says she would greet them. RINA says it might be better to not speak directly to them and instead exude an aura that you're aware of them. HARU says that they might be kind to you if you do notice them. TOMO says maybe try appealing to them so that they take notice. RINA says she'd tell them, "Thanks for your hard work! Good morning!" MAMI says that one day HARU might disappear and if you greet whoever takes her place like that, they might be like, "Let's go to space!" HARU says that she's never talked about that experience until now, and she did so because the occasion called for it/she was in a position where this was a subject she had experience in. MAMI says that those who play music are often good at expressing themselves. HARU says that their power to sense things seems to be strong. MAMI jokes and says that they're a band whose vocalist is an alien (TOMO: "That'll help us sell well!").

•The last thing they talk about is how they're interested in what space smells like. HARU reads info from an article that has info from this one. They say it seems to smell gunpowder-like. TOMO says that the "walnuts and brake pads" smell is the most mysterious. MAMI then says it might be weird but she has a feeling she kind of understands what the smell of space is said to be like, a sweet kind of gunpowdery smell. TOMO says that she can imagine that scent as well. MAMI then says she thinks it's kind of the smell of being inside of a car that hasn't been driven in a while. RINA wonders if the Earth has a smell. TOMO says that it depends on what part of the Earth, and says that foreigners are said to say that Japan smells like soy sauce. She says that Earth itself might smell like greenery. RINA says that talking about things they don't know about is fun. They also wonder if there are listeners who have experienced things like seeing UFOs before. MAMI says that there are a lot of stories about things like this overseas, after all. They say to write in if you've experienced such things. HARU then says that the top thing they want is to get messages from aliens (RINA: "Could we even read them?"). RINA wonders what they would do if that actually happens and says that would be scary. HARU tells aliens to not forget to include their address when sending a message in so that they can send them stickers, which the others laugh at (MAMI: "Address??" - TOMO: "Maybe it'd say 'Space'").

#front-page #catchup
Large-scale project "SCANDAL Apollo program" of their dreams begins!?

Episode #85 blog


Topics tagged under front-page on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 16 WRheCGN




HARUNA: We're announcing a large-scale project of our dreams...!

RINA: Right now...?

HARUNA: This is a sudden announcement...
As of today we're launching a large-scale project of our dreams...
Titled "SCANDAL Apollo program!"

RINA: ...what in the world?

MAMI: Sounds fun!

HARUNA: That's right - Catch up and SCANDAL are all about Apollo, and Apollo is all about space. So the next thing for us after Osaka-Jo Hall can only be space!

RINA: No... The next thing after OJH isn't space.

MAMI: But we'd like to aim for space/the stars.

HARUNA: It certainly is a large jump from OJH to space. At any rate, it means "SCANDAL will shoot for the stars!"

RINA: How will we be doing so?

HARUNA: It seems that this was established following the subject of penguins being aliens that TOMOMI talked about. Also, "This is the era in which Jeff Bezos actually went to space! It's not a dream!"

MAMI: It's getting funー

HARUNA: "SCANDAL has fans around the world - The next thing after that can only be aliens!"

MAMI: There might already be aliens among our fans, right?

TOMOMI: I think aliens are already listening to us, right?

MAMI: It's also possible that there are aliens among us right here.

HARUNA: I'll read the news that TOMOMI talked about on how penguins might be aliens.


Penguins 'might be aliens'

Penguins may be aliens, say scientists, after traces of a chemical from Venus were found in the birds’ poop.

Scientists cannot explain how phosphine exists on Earth – 38 million miles away from Venus.

They plan to study the lifestyle of gentoo penguins – common in the Falkland Islands – to find out how they produce the chemical.

Dr Dave Clements, of Imperial College, London, said: “We’re convinced the phosphine finding is real. But we don’t know what’s making it.

“There are some anaerobic bacteria that produce phosphine.

“It’s found in pond slime and the guts of badgers and penguin guano.”

According to a British study, the same chemicals found in Venus' atmosphere were found in penguin droppings. Scientists cannot explain how phosphine exists on Earth – 38 million miles away from Venus. They plan to study the lifestyle of gentoo penguins – common in the Falkland Islands – to find out how they produce the chemical.

Dr. Dave Clements, of Imperial College, London, said: "We're convinced the phosphine finding is real. But we don't know what's making it."



MAMI: Penguins really are cute...!!


Because it's "Apollo"... The entire staff regrets not starting this project earlier.
SCANDAL will shoot for the stars!
We're also awaiting messages from aliens!

I'm pretty sure this is the first time she's ever mentioned she used to have a different last name, so we have no idea what her previous one was.

【Translated Summary】
『SCANDAL Catch up supported by Meiji Apollo』 - Episode 84

•The episode starts with this. Since things like onomatopoeia for foods don't really exist in other countries/languages, HARU wonders what they do to express the sound of fried chicken, for example. MAMI guesses that the sound of the food being advertised is played for real, as in they record the sound of someone actually biting down on the food. RINA talks about how when they've been overseas, she's noticed that commercials would loudly play the sound of the food being bitten down on, and that people wouldn't be explaining the product [actually, that's more of the trend in the US right now--there's a narrator talking about the product as background music plays and actors are shown on screen eating the advertised product].

•MAMI reads the next message from a listener who is also writing in about onomatopoeia and their wife from Thailand confirms that they don't have any for fried foods nor stick-like veggies. They also say that their wife poked fun at how many onomatopoeia exists in Japan, which makes the band laugh (MAMI: "That's so cute!"). They mention that there are onomatopoeia for animal sounds like dogs and chickens. MAMI wonders what the sound is for pigeons and HARU talks about when she was in elementary school and it'd be really scary to hear lots of pigeons making noise but not be able to see them, which makes them all laugh. RINA wonders why there are so many nuanced onomatopoeia in Japanese. They keep wondering again how people can express stuff in other languages--they don't really understand due to how often onomatopoeia is used and how pervasive it is in Japanese when describing things [lol I wrote in and said that in English we primarily use adjectives--I wonder if they'll read it haha].

•HARU reads the next message from a listener who says that there are onomatopoeia that exists in Tsugaru dialect: "payapaya" (パヤパヤ), which basically means peach fuzz that can be found on the body; and "bayabaya" (バヤバヤ), which basically means a large gathering of people. MAMI says that they understand "payapaya" as it invokes the image of something popping up here and there. RINA doesn't get it, but HARU says that she kind of gets it. RINA is surprised and asks if they think they've used it before, and they think they have. They all say that they've never heard of "bayabaya," though.

•The staff says something inaudible about onomatopoeia, and MAMI goes, "'Tokintokin' (ときんときん; pointy) in Nagoya... Then what's the sound that's heard when a traffic light is blinking?" RINA says "chikachika" (チカチカ; flickering) and HARU says "pakapaka" (パカパカ). MAMI goes, "Ah, 'pakapaka'... That's right!", which makes everyone else laugh. RINA goes, "Ehhh??" HARU says that it's not "chikachika"; RINA is surprised and thinks it's very "chikachika"-like. She then then talks about their song "Koe" and how its story revolves around a changing traffic light [lol RINA, it seems that you're actually thinking of "Awanai Tsumori no, Genki de ne" - but they were written by the same person, so that's probably why she got them mixed up]. She asks if "pakapaka" suits the song. HARU says that the onomatopoeia for a signal could only be "pakapaka." RINA goes, "Ehh, my perception of the song has totally been ruined!", which makes everyone laugh. RINA says that "chikachika" gives off a flickering image; MAMI says that it gives off more of an image of something smaller than a signal, such as Christmas lights. RINA asks, "How about a large amount of small lights?" They laugh and MAMI and HARU say that it might be "pakapaka" in that case (RINA: "So it does end up like that!"). A staffer then asks them if there are a lot of Chinese words in Nagoya dialect. HARU says that there's "chinchin" (ちんちん), which means "hot." RINA says that that's "chunchun" (ちゅんちゅん) in Osaka dialect. The staffer loudly goes, "Ehh??" They laugh and RINA says that it's used when it's extremely hot.

•MAMI reads the next message from a listener who says that when they were listening to SCANDAL's song "Sisters" while doing housework, Siri responded to the "Hey sister" line in the song. After hearing the following lyric ("Sono ashi de..."), it changed the song they were listening to to aiko's "Eriashi" song instead. They tell the band to try it out if they'd like. The band talks about "one more time" and how the "Hey Siri" line in it might trigger Siri to launch. RINA says that it was hard recording that line since their phones would react. They ask the listener to try it and let them know if it sets it off. MAMI wonders what song Siri would change it to after hearing the following line, which is "Hazumu rizumu." RINA says that there could be a lot of possibilities. MAMI says that Siri does go off randomly. RINA says that it sometimes goes off during rehearsals.

•RINA reads the next message from a listener who says that every episode of "Catch up" is god-tier, but episode 82 was particularly god-like because of the discussion about the band members' hair. They say that their hair is currently orange despite being a third-year high schooler, and that they dye their hair not because they're a delinquent but because their school has no rules about things like that. They say they think it's fairly rare for a high school to have no restrictions within the bounds of common sense. MAMI wonders if orange is within those bounds; HARU thinks so, if the school's allowing it. RINA says that a lot of schools now seem to have less rules about appearance. MAMI says that when she was in high school, the only schools that would let you wear plain clothes would be ones for really smart people. RINA says that the all-girls' high school she went to in Osaka had uniforms, but the one she transferred to in Tokyo let the students wear plain clothes. She thought it was really interesting since you could tell via fashion what kinds of things people were influenced by. HARU says that she doesn't like school rules and that her middle school was pretty strict: if your hair was longer than your shoulders, you had to split your hair into two parts (like pigtails)--you couldn't even have it gathered into one. HARU says that she would have loved to have known why that was the rule, but even teachers didn't know the reason why. That's why the entire time she thought of how only rules that can be explained should be established.

•RINA talks about something that she was reminded of. When she was in middle school, her parents divorced and she had to change her last name. She didn't like her new last name nor the new environment she was in, but one of the rules for the school she was going to was to have students have a name tag sewn on to their clothes. Although she hated it, that was one of the rules she had to abide by. When students graduate from the school, their entire name is called when being handed their diploma at the graduation ceremony. She had told her homeroom teacher many times about how she felt about her name, but the teacher always said although she understood, they had to announce a student's full name. However, when the ceremony rolled around, the teacher called RINA by her first name only. RINA was shocked and started crying tears of happiness. She says that rules are important but you should also take into account each person's feelings. She thinks that if a teacher is understanding of the situation, it's okay to break/bend the rules for that person.

•She also mentions how fans overseas often write her full name including the kanji characters used, likely because the use of kanji can seem cool to foreigners. However, she doesn't really like it when her full name is used--she'd much rather be called "SCANDAL RINA" or "Drummer RINA" instead.

•In that same sort of vein, HARU brings up the fact that MAMI's name written in Japanese uses hiragana rather than kanji. MAMI says that it's the same for TOMO as well. She also says that it's kind of fun to see what kind of kanji people think her name consists of. Some ways she's seen it is with the character "魔" (devil/demon) and "魅" (bewitch), which together is the actual word "魔魅" = "Deceiving spirit." HARU laughs and says, "That's so strong!" MAMI says that she's glad her hiragana name is more rounded and that it doesn't consist of characters that have a lot of strokes to them.

Yesterday in Sendai.
We played a joint concert with indigo la End!
It was such a great night...
To everyone who came out,
Thank you so much!

indigo was so cool^^
Enon-kun
Said to us,
"We don't really get invited to play joint shows...
So we were like, 'Are you sure you're okay with us?'"
And what I thought
Was that I'm so glad we plucked up the courage to ask them.
I'm so happy
That they accepted our offer amidst their busy schedules!
I'm also happy I got to hear "Tulip"...◎

Who SCANDAL is right now is a band that has taken inspiration from all kinds of artists
And has evolved several times over.
If we didn't change, we might not have still been around.
With setlists packed with songs we want people to listen to right now
And amidst an atmosphere handcrafted by the four of us,
The only thing to do is for us to follow through with our live performances.
This joint-band tour will be one that'll get time moving on dispelling misunderstandings!


※Bonus

Having fun in SENDAI GIGS's green rooms & rehearsals
