Talking about a ton of different things
P = Piston Nishizawa (DJ)

*SCANDAL introduces themselves*

P: That's so unenthusiastic!

All: (laughs) But we are enthusiastic!

P: You sounded so flat.

H: Relax, Piston-san!

P: What should I be relaxed about?

H: It's like we're visiting an uncle of ours.

They talk a little bit about HARU's tweet where she mentioned she went out to eat dinner by herself for the first time (H: It's cool, isn't it? / Japanese food tasted delicious after coming back from Germany).

P: You guys seem pretty busy lately!

R: We're super busy (laughs). We're grateful.

P: Where did you go? Germany?

R: We're currently on our joint band tour, and we participated in a TV taping in Germany. We're going to Tokyo, Nagoya, and Osaka on our tour. We're going to Okinawa tomorrow [for ORANGE RANGE's sponsored festival].

P: Really?

R: We were invited there.

P: Okinawa's hot, isn't it?

All: Right~

P: Rock bands go somewhere new to play a live every day.

R: That is true.

P: Don't your parents worry?

All: Not at all!

P: Really?

R: We've been doing this since we were middle and high schoolers.

P: Are there any rules you have to follow?

R: Not at all. Like, we're of course free to date, since we're musicians.

[The band all starts talking at the same time, making it difficult to hear the part after this]

Piston starts reading things that are written down [on a paper in front of him, perhaps]. He mentions them briefly: HARU running in the Osaka Marathon (P: We're done here.), MAMI and making clothes, TOMO and being obsessed with bouldering recently.

P: That's awesome! Bouldering will be in the Olympics.

T: Bouldering gyms have been popular recently. It's surprisingly not just about power, but you need to used your core too. You need to use your hands and body to grab the next rock.

P: We're done here.

All: (laughs)

P: RINA, you moved recently.

R: I did move.

P: You like movies and The Walking Dead. You treasure it.

R: Treasure it (laughs)? I do like it; I'm currently watching it.

P: You guys are excited now!

R: We are. Thanks.

M: That was pretty short.

P: Eh, what color is your hair?

M: I dyed it pink, but it's faded now. I'll go redye it soon.

P: Ah, okay. I'd love to see that pink hair on stage.

M: I see. I'll be going to Okinawa like this (laughs).

P: Do you consult the members before changing your hair? Like, "Maybe I'll cut my bangs straight across."

R: We do, like what color we'll do next.

P: Ah, I see.

R: I have red hair right now. Red-pink.

H: TOMO's is like that too.

P: Red-pink. Bald.

R: That's right.

T: Piston-san is bald.

P: I'm the only bald one.

Talking about a new album, writing songs, etc.

Piston talks about can feel the band's growth in "Koisuru Universe," upcoming lives of theirs during the end of the year, and how they went from wearing sailor uniforms to being all-grown up. He also asks if it's hard to take your next step when you're so busy.

R: We're always writing songs while on tour. We're writing songs and lyrics.

P: Is it like homework? Do you write it alone in your rooms?

R: We're always writing on-the-go, or when something pops into our heads.

P: Like tomorrow, will you meet up early and have a meeting?

R: There are times we do that and say we'll make a song, and also times when we'll suddenly come up with something.

P: Is it the same with recording?

R: Ah, it is. We'll LINE each other. Recently we've been putting everything together.

H + M: We make sure to finish it up properly.

R: We finish them punctually.

P: You guys definitely consider this a job.

All: (laughs)

All: We always do things in that way.

P: It's great when you can make friends at work.

All: (laughs) That's definitely true.

P: So, will you be releasing a new album next year?

R: We're recording now to be able to release it.

P: Ah, you've already started?

R: Yes, we have.

M: Little by little we're recording songs we've finished writing.

P: Do you work on songs without taking a break from writing, or does it vary?

M: It varies, but we all contact each other when we have something. It happens naturally.

H: We're always talking on LINE.

P: I see. That's a good thing, though. It's kind of like that balance would crumble if one of you would be running after love.

R: That's true.

P: But that seems impossible right now.

R: (laughs) You noticing that might make me cry!

P: So, an album next year, and a goal for the band--how many years has it been? You had your major label debut in 2008? It's already almost 10 years.

R: That's right.

All: Next year.

P: After 10 years, will you go on for another 10, 20 years? What's a goal of yours?

R: When we were playing in live houses, we had a dream of playing a solo show at Osaka-Jo Hall. We've gotten to do things like arena tours and remembered that the size of the venue isn't the only thing that's cool. We want to continue to be a band that can play a good live show anywhere, regardless of the size of a venue.

P: For example, what about playing a live on a large boat while it's moving?

All: That sounds awesome!

P: Doesn't that sound interesting?

R: It does. We'd love to do a ton of interesting things.

H: We need to continue on in order to do that.

P: I see. Then please keep on doing what you're doing.

All: (laughs)

P: Isn't that the best?

R: Yeah, it is.

P: It's not like you're just playing around; music is also a commodity. You need to work hard.

Piston talks about more how he hopes they keep working hard.

P: We listened to "Koisuru Universe" earlier. We'll be playing another song on the radio for the first time.

All: That's right!

P: What kind of song is it?

R: It's a killer love rock-song.

P: Please introduce the song.

H: "Futari" by SCANDAL.

Posted in: Other News  Topic: All SCANDAL MVs Now Available on VEVO  Replies: 139  Views: 11399

Talking about SCANDAL's and BLUE ENCOUNT's upcoming show in Osaka
S = Shunichi Tanabe, guitarist of BLUE ENCOUNT
O = Ochiken (Kentarou Ochiai, DJ)

S: I feel out of place; why am I here alone!

O: It's like two-on-two today.

S: Yeah, it's really like we've come to a party! We're all good friends.

O: We'll be talking about the Osaka performance of SCANDAL's Joint Band Tour. It's like an emergency meeting. How will you be preparing for your show at Zepp Osaka Bayside? We'll relay why SCANDAL chose BLUE ENCOUNT [will be shortened to "BLUEN" henceforth] to play at this show.

R: We're going to Tokyo, Nagoya, and Osaka on this tour and having UNISON SQUARE GARDEN, 04 Limited Sazabys, and BLUEN. BLUEN will be playing in Osaka. After we listened to and watched all kinds of bands who play rock, we picked three of the strongest bands and invited them. BLUEN told us right away that they'd want to play, so we assigned them to the Osaka show [HARU giggles]. They're the coolest live band right now.

O: Oooh!

S: Our manager told us about SCANDAL's invite to their tour and heard about the other bands playing at the other shows; we were like, "Why did they choose us?" Like, maybe they thought we sounded good on CDs.

R: We do, but when we saw BLUEN at a festival, we thought you guys were great.

H: We both performed at the same festivals and events last year. BLUEN went almost right after us, which made us really happy. You guys were so cool.

O: They remember. Was it at the Makuhari Messe venue?

R: Yes.

S: We thought SCANDAL was way out of our league. [At one of the events] we wanted to go greet them backstage. We had to change clothes and were in a hurry, ran out of there, and greeted them.

R: After BLUEN played at Budokan and were to release their album, we got to talk to them about how we were looking forward to their songs.

S: I acted all cool and I was like, "Ah, thanks so much! You guys listen to us then?"

R: You were so cool!

S: When I went back into the dressing room I was like, "Yeahhhh!" I didn't plan to talk today about how happy I was; I wanted to say it at the live [in Osaka]. But SCANDAL is in a league of their own, artist-wise as well, and since I thought they were really cool and often listen to their albums [R: That makes me really happy], just them calling out to us made it feel fun. Like, it made me play a better live that day.

O: What's surprising is that SCANDAL is doing their first joint band tour. Why did you decide to do it at this point in time?

R: We looked up to bands like BLUEN, and a lot of rock bands are friends with each other. We had always been jealous of that. We're in our eleventh year, and back when we first started there were hardly any all-girl bands. We really had no friends that could play a joint live with us. We thought the guy bands were cool. So, we finally started getting invited to festivals and are at a point where we can play joint lives with other bands. We wanted to play with our favorite bands.

O: Back then SCANDAL had been alone!

H + R: We really were!

O: But bands like BLUEN are playing joint lives with you. It's like they're senpai/seniors to you.

R: That's right!

S: Not at all!

O: Let's talk about things that are common when doing joint lives.

H + R: We want to hear about them!

H: We came to ask that!

S: You feel jittery before you hit the stage. The better friends you are, the more you feel tense for the show. But it gives you power to play the show.

O: How do you feel when you're invited to play a joint live?

S: We've had a number of experiences with that. The pressure's high. What makes you feel the happiest is feeling connected to the crowd. You don't really know what the crowd will be like.

R: We wanted to make it a bit different for our joint band tour. Half of the crowd will be BLUEN fans, and half will be SCANDAL fans. We modified the ticketing so that it'd be fair.

O: That's awesome!

S: At joint band tours you get to see scenery you haven't seen before. There might be fans of ours there, but it's really different. When you see that, you want to take a new step forward. You're more nervous than when you're doing a solo tour. You don't want to shine brighter than the band that invited you.

O: It's looking like the show on the 22nd at Zepp Osaka Bayside will be great one.

R: We can't wait.

O: We'll play SCANDAL's new song on FM802 for the first time.

H + R: Ah, thank you!

O: The music video's so cool!

R: Thanks so much!

O: Cool and--

R: Stimulating.

H: It mixes the two.

Talking about music they listen to on-the-go

O: Being rock bands, you're constantly on the go to venues. What music do you listen to while on-the-go? Who wants to go first?

S: How about you, Ochiken? You're busy constantly going between Osaka, Nagoya, etc. for radio.

O: I've been listening to a young British band called RedFaces. They seem like they could be the next White Stripes. Here's their song called "Take It Or Leave It."

H: It sounds cool.

S: The bass is really cool.

H + S: It's cool.

H: This is the first time I've heard of them.

O: It sounds like it could be in a Guy Richie movie. They're still young, in their teens.

H: So young!

O: There isn't much info about them online. How about you girls go next? What song have you been listening to recently, RINA?

R: I've been listening to them for a while. A two-person unit called Sleigh Bells. I really like them and like all of their songs. They're a bit noisy. This song's called "Crown On the Ground" and was used in the opening of the movie The Bling Ring. They're really cool.

H: I chose a pretty old song. It's a Japanese song [not sure what it is since they never mentioned it by name].

O: Oh!

S: Wait a minute!

H: We appeared at this year's Kishidan Banpaku, as did BLUEN, and they did as well. I listened to this song a lot in middle school but hadn't seen it live. My first time hearing and seeing it live was at Kishidan Banpaku. I was really excited and started listening to them again for the first time in forever.


They mention how the show in Osaka is sold out, that this 'emergency meeting' was more of them joking around, SCANDAL and BLUEN both have new songs coming out, BLUEN is playing two nights at Namba Hatch, and then go back to the show in Osaka.

R: We want to bring along a nice atmosphere and have our fans intersect. We want to make it a day where our fans become friends with one another.
