We are ready to face music with all of our humanity and frankness

We want to connect to our music all the good and bad things we feel as we live our lives



SCANDAL, who has established itself as Japan's leading all-girl band, started their private record label "her" a year ago. They have completed Kiss from the darkness, their first new album on the label. By breaking down the rules and methodologies that had bound themselves up to now, they now are presenting a vivid world view containing both light and darkness.




―I felt that this album is chock-full of SCANDAL's freedom and strength obtained after establishing "her," and a positive energy unique to women.

MAMI: Thank you very much. It became a piece a work that's jam-packed with everything that happened with us last year. We feel quite accomplished and satisfied, and we were also able to actually experience a good sense of nervousness and weariness. Before, we had been trying not to really talk about being tired—rather, we thought it wasn't like us to say something like that. However, since we were able to do away with that by launching "her," we were able to show all of our true colors.

RINA: We started "her" to be able to always face music with new feelings, and also so that we're able to play music for a long time while having fun. By creating "her," we were able to once again share our awareness of playing cool music while enjoying being women, as well as gain more freedom with our songwriting. We can now try out all kinds of sounds experimentally. "Saishuuheiki, Kimi," for example.


―That song is awesome.

RINA: Glad to hear it (laughs)! It encourages us when our team tells us things like, "This song is great! Let's release it!" This past year we've realized the many positive effects of launching our own label.

MAMI: About "Saishuuheiki, Kimi," guys from bands in particular often tell us they think it's a cool song. It also really makes us happy that there are many comments from people other than Japanese and English-speaking countries in the comment section of the video on YouTube as well.


―How about the entire album?

TOMOMI: I think we've put together songs that'll widen the range of staple songs for our live shows. There are surprisingly very few songs like "Saishuuheiki, Kimi" that can change the scene with a new image, "Tonight" has a new sound sensation, etc. This album is all about songs that we can take different approaches with live. It's now more fun to put together setlists.


―Something unique to this work is the many producers who worked on it. Among those, I was surprised that SASUKE produced "Tonight."

MAMI: For "Tonight," we had already made a demo that contained all of our band sounds. We were okay with keeping the arrangement as-is, but we wanted to do something new. We thought, "What about asking a trackmaker to do what we've asked an arranger to do up until now?" That's when SASUKE's name came up. When we had him listen to our band demo, he told us, "This is already complete" (laughs), but we ignored our arrangement and sent him an offer to give it a SASUKE-like sound.

RINA: It made us happy that he did such a good job and that he really changed the song. Since this was SASUKE's first time working with a band, it was great that he had no preconceived notions. It felt fresh for all of us.

TOMOMI: The first arrangement we did was really cool too, but the arrangement had no live instruments in it and we weren't sure how we would play it live (laughs). So, in the end, we settled with the current sound.


―"NEON TOWN ESCAPE," the song with lyrics and music by HARUNA, was arranged by Chiaki Sato.

HARUNA: Chiaki and I have been good friends for about two years now. When we went out to eat in early 2019, we talked about how we wanted to write songs that year. Since I was like, "We made a promise, so I'll do my best!", I started writing it. I decided to go with a 90s-like sound. I made the demo myself, had the other members listen to it, and we all made a demo together. When I was wondering what to do with the arrangement, I remembered that it was Chiaki who made the promise at the beginning of the year, and that she herself is playing songs that sound 90s-like. I thought it'd be interesting to do this together and then spoke to her about it.


―Including acoustic instruments like the trumpet and the saxophone was also something fresh for you.

HARUNA: It instantly makes it super 90s-like. I also like the feel of it fading out. I got to challenge myself with this song and got to write a song I had wanted to, precisely because it was before we decided on the album's theme.


―"Laundry Laundry," the song with lyrics and music by TOMOMI, is a gentle song arranged by Yusuke Takeda from RADWIMPS.

TOMOMI: When I was feeling a little frazzled a while ago, I felt as though doing housework cleansed my feelings. I then turned that into a song. Since I made with just one guitar, it turned out to be a funky song that also made me think that it'd be difficult to translate this into something that we could do as a band. But, I wanted to challenge myself to playing acoustic guitar for this song that I personally am attached to. When I talked with Takeda in advance about how I'd like to step up our live show game someday, he put his all into finishing it up with an acoustic arrangement. It made me happy that I was stumped with how to arrange it, and it felt like I had been rescued from the uneasy feelings I had of not being able to translate it to a band sound.


―A dark and hard world view is shown in "A.M.D.K.J." It's an ending song for the anime "GeGeGe no Kitaro," correct?

RINA: Yes. We wrote it specifically for the anime. It was right around the time we had been wanting to write a song that could be a killer tune at our live shows, and we went ahead with pairing together a Kitaro-like world view & an eerie atmosphere. Kitaro's catchphrase, "Mieteru sekai ga subete ja nai (The world you see isn't all there is)," is also a great line. This was the first time anger was the theme for a song, as we wanted to put all of our emotions—not just our sparkly side—into the album.


―The personal aspects in this work certainly are richly depicted.

RINA: Our range of attack has definitely expanded. I wrote words I thought I would never use before, and I felt like I chose words that could get rid of the lyric rules I had created for myself. In particular, all of the words in "A.M.D.K.J." are strong.


―"YOU GO GIRL!", the bonus track that can only be found on the physical CD editions of the album, features a positive attitude despite feeling that you have a weakness. It's wonderful that the album closes out with this song.

RINA: I'm happy to hear that. You can see almost the whole story of the album with it. Though there are days when you negatively fall down with a crash, you just need to take everything in a brighter direction. Tomorrow is another day. Those are the thoughts we put into the title, Kiss from the darkness. At that time, the staff gave us the idea to put "YOU GO GIRL!" as the last track. It certainly is a song that explains the entirety of the album title. "You go, girl" is an encouraging slang term that means "Give it your all!" or "Keep at it!", so I'm glad we concluded the album with this song.


―I can clearly feel your resolution to be a band that doesn't only show their positive side.

RINA: Yes. We are ready to face music with all of our humanity and frankness.

HARUNA: We need to show that side, or else we certainly won't be able to continue on for much longer. Rather, it feels weird just showing a positive side. It's natural as a human being to have all sorts of waves in your life. We thought about what we, who were only showing our positive side, could say to people. We're performers, but we're the same as you. We want to keep being people who can convey those same feelings via our music.

RINA: It's not that we want to vent our difficulties or anger, but we also can't always be cheerful. We want to connect to our music all the good and bad things we feel as we live our lives while being true to ourselves every day.


―Doesn't the music you create often help your own selves out?

RINA: Exactly! It gives us hope. We sing about not giving in to your weaknesses in both "Saishuuheiki, Kimi" and "Masterpiece," so that's basically what my thoughts are (laughs). It's good that SCANDAL is feeling fresh right now. Although it's still an unknown factor, we always have an unfounded confidence that we'll be just fine.

HARUNA: We started a label because we wanted to head to a new phase, and in 2019 we did regular tours, a fan club tour, events, festivals, joint shows, etc. We did it all. It was a year where all of our challenges came to fruition, and it all gave us a ton of confidence. 2020 is going to be the best year for the band to be able to tour around Japan and the world as we are now.

New Album - 「Kiss from the darkness」 - Sat Jan 25, 2020 10:26 am

This was brought to my attention: "Tsuki" is actually NOT the bonus track that will only be available on the physical editions of the CD.

This is why I originally thought "Tsuki" was the bonus track, if anyone cares lol:
I had thought that "Tsuki" was the bonus track because of where the "bonus track" notation is in the official tracklisting announcement on the official site , and that notation is directly under "Tsuki." I now realize that that was not the case, and that it meant that there is to be an additional track to be announced/revealed later. The simple wording in Japanese threw me off. I apologize for any confusion I've caused lol


The actual bonus track will be called "YOU GO GIRL!", which RINA mentions in her latest blog post, and which she also mentions in their interview with FLYING POSTMAN PRESS magazine (translation coming soon).


So, 4 editions of the physical CD (does not include the vinyl edition, however) will contain a total of 12 tracks.

1. Tonight
2. Masterpiece
3. Fuzzy
4. Saishuuheiki, Kimi
5. Laundry Laundry
6. NEON TOWN ESCAPE
7. Ceramic Blue
8. Kinenbi
9. Mabataki
10. A.M.D.K.J.
11. Tsuki
12. YOU GO GIRL!



And the songs we have yet to hear are:

-Tonight (full version)
-NEON TOWN ESCAPE
-Ceramic Blue
-Kinenbi
-Tsuki
-YOU GO GIRL!

Really are all about your mind and body.
If I feel like it,
Maybe I'll post about my training on social media

【Translated Summary】AbemaTV - A special program to celebrate SCANDAL's release, #2 - January 15th




Start - 16:25

Spoiler:
The host, comedian Barbie, asks them how the recording of the album is going. HARU says that they've already finished it, and that it took quite a lot of time to make. Barbie then asks them if there's a meaning behind the title. HARU says it's a very positive title that's like SCANDAL's own way of saying "que sera sera" (What will be, will be). Barbie says that something like that (kiss from the darkness) would normally mean something scary.

They then talk about their label "her." RINA says that this is the probably the hardest they've ever worked on something before. Barbie asks if recording this album felt any different. RINA says they felt pretty tense, HARU says it's completely different from playing a live show, and TOMO says that the only thing they could think of was how tense they felt. HARU says that they let all that loose when playing shows. Barbie then asks them if they're like, "Now that I'm done with this, I want to go do that." RINA gives examples like going to Disneyland with her younger sister and going out for yakiniku (Barbie: "You really go all out!"). HARU mentions that basically the only thing they eat when they record are bento (RINA: "We eat them everyday!"). Barbie asks if it's because they're busy/don't have time. They answer that it's because they're holed up in the studio all day. Barbie asks how long that time period lasts for. RINA says that they take a month to focus on making songs, and since they write the lyrics and music at home, it takes about a year overall. HARU says that prepping takes a lot of time.

Next, they mention that "A.M.D.K.J." is the ending song for "GeGeGe no Kitaro." Barbie says, "It's the one that Kiyoshi [Hikawa] sings, right?" They laugh and say that he sings the opening song, and that they sing the ending song. RINA says that she's really happy about it since she watched the anime when she was little. HARU says that the series is apparently really popular with kids right now. MAMI says that Kitaro's a very cool guy. The music video for the song then plays.

After the video airs, Barbie says that she can totally picture kids bouncing along to it, and asks them what kind of song it is. HARU says it's a very classic rock tune with impressive guitar riffs, and one that will probably be very fun for people to cover. Barbie mentions that the rhythm feels great and that it would probably resonate with kids too. They say that they'd love for them to sing along during the parts they say "amidakuji." Barbie says that that's a melody that they'll remember even after they've grown up.

Barbie asks them about the unusual spelling of "A.M.D.K.J." RINA says they wanted to make it symbol-like since the other spellings for the word didn't really match what they were going for. After playing around with it for a bit, they decided to go with the symbol-like spelling. Barbie says that it's memorable, kind of like "Y.M.C.A." (lol) She then asks them how recording it went. RINA says that it took a lot of energy since it's an intense song, and that they felt excited since it's most likely a song that'll be played a lot live. Barbie asks who OK'd the final takes they'd use. RINA answers that they themselves did, and would do takes until they were satisfied with them, no matter how long it took. They were careful to not take too much time on guitars, which they recorded last. Barbie comments that deciding yourself is kind of scary, like how do you decide where to stop? HARU and RINA say that there is a point where you no longer know, if it takes too much time. Barbie then asks about the lyrics for the song, which were written by RINA. She says she chose wording that would go with the mysterious atmosphere that "Kitaro" has, and went with strong and attacking words. She wanted to make it their own "killer tune" kind of song. Barbie asks what her favorite line in the song is, because there's always one thing in what you make that you're proud of. RINA says that she started writing the lyrics from the word "amidakuji," found in the song's second verses, and expanded on a story from the words "amidakuji of fate (unmei no amidakuji)." MAMI comments that this is the first time she's hearing of this. She also says that she wrote the music for it, and when she saw that "amidakuji of fate" was in the lyrics, she was like, "I see what you did there!" and thought it was really cool. HARU mentions that there's also the line "Sometimes you just can't be so serious (kuso majime ni yatterannai hi mo aru yo)," and RINA says that she thought the Kitaro team would say that couldn't be used ("kuso" can be used in a vulgar sense, meaning "shit" lol), but they allowed it. Barbie says that different generations could relate to "amidakuji of fate." HARU says it's a phrase that can resonate for children and adults.



16:25 - 35:20

Spoiler:
The next segment is titled "Discussing Love - 'SCANDAL's Room'", and two guests who are stars of dating reality shows, Momo (the woman) and Arashi (the man), join the program. They were both on the reality show Ainori in the mid 2000s.

This segment is mostly focused on Momo and Arashi, so I will not be writing a summary of it.



35:20 - 48:45

Spoiler:
Next is a test to see how feminine everyone is. For this, there are a total of two questions with four answers varying in points from 0-5. Whoever gets the highest score wins. Barbie asks if they feel that they're very feminine. RINA goes, "Not sure..." while HARU shakes her head. The first question asked is:

Your boyfriend's driving. Apparently, he's panicking a little because he got lost and hasn't been able to reach the intended destination. How should you act?

A. Guide him while looking closely at the car GPS or a map
B. Berate him and say, "What's taking so long? You're so unreliable!"
C. Ask him, "I need to go to the bathroom. Let's go to a cafe somewhere"
D. Pretend to be asleep


HARU, RINA, MAMI, and Arashi answer A. TOMO, Barbie, and Momo answer C.

They start by peeling off the piece of paper covering the points for answer D. It's so stuck on that Barbie can't really pull it off from her angle, so HARU helps out and pulls it off, revealing it to be worth 3 points. Next is answer B, worth 0 points. Next is C, worth 5 points (the highest). Finally is A, which is only worth 1 point. Barbie asks if there will be any explanation for these answers and their point totals - there isn't, which makes all of them laugh. Momo says that she chose C because the boyfriend is already ticked off, so whatever she would do wouldn't help any; therefore she'd want to give him a little break. Arashi thinks that if the boyfriend wasn't ticked off, then A would be the answer with the most points. HARU says that that A would probably hurt the boyfriend's pride.

The next question:

You're at a drinking party with old classmates. You point to you and your male friend and say, "If we're still single in 10 years, we should just get married to each other." He says, "Well..." and shows blatant disapproval. How do you answer back in a joking manner?

A. "No matter how much you're under pressure, even I have the right to choose"
B. "Oh, I'm okay with it being 10 years from now, or even right now"
C. "How rude! What's with that face you're making?"
D. "That might be good once we're both divorced"


HARU, Barbie, and Momo answer D. RINA and Arashi answer B. TOMO and MAMI answer C.

They start with A, which is once again hard to peel off. It's worth 2 points. Next is B, which Barbie asks HARU to pull off. It starts ripping the score off, so HARU goes for peeling off the other corner with no luck ("It doesn't matter which way--it's impossible to take off"). B is revealed to be worth 0 points. Next is C, which is worth 5 points (the highest). Last is D, which is worth 3 points. Barbie says, "There isn't anyone who got 0 points this time, right?" Arashi says yes, and RINA says, "There are," and hides her face with her letter. She then goes, "Ugh!" They both say they thought it was a response that would make the friend laugh, and to clear up the atmosphere. For C, TOMO and MAMI thought it was the most joke-like. For D, HARU says it wouldn't really hurt their feelings.

TOMO ends up winning with a perfect score of 10 points ("This is kind of embarrassing!"). Barbie asks the other members if this was expected. They say yes (MAMI: "This is how TOMOMI normally is. Her answers too."). As a reward, TOMO gets to eat a small cake and picks the one that's heart-shaped, but has a hard time taking it out of the box (Barbie: "Why is the cake taped to the box?!"). TOMO says it's really delicious and that it's embarrassing eating like this in front of everyone (HARU: "You won, but it's like you're doing a punishment"), and also that it's super embarrassing to be told she's very feminine.



48:45 - end

Spoiler:
Barbie asks them what the new album is like.

-H: "It's a really great one. Including our digital singles, there are a total of 11 songs. It's very dense. It'll be available as a Regular Edition, a DVD Edition, a Magazine Edition, a T-Shirt+DVD Edition, so please choose the one that you like and enjoy it."

-B: "There's also a documentary on it?"

-SCANDAL: "That's right."

-B: "Wow, I'm sure the fans will be happy to see that."

-H: "We had the crew shoot us in all sorts of places such as when we're recording and during each of our off-times. We're also really looking forward to how it'll be edited."

-B: "Were there times when you didn't want to be filmed?"

-R: "They were filming us so much that we no longer noticed the cameras."


Barbie then asks TOMO to announce the next piece of news. TOMO announces that SCANDAL will be doing another livestream on AbemaTV on February 12, the day the album comes out.


Lastly, the band gives out closing comments.

-M: "It'd make us happy if you'd listen to our album a lot and come out to our tour. Pi!"

-T: "We're playing 19 performances here in Japan, so please come out to one close to you. Pi!"

-R: "We hope you look forward to our next livestream as well. We really can't wait for our tour to start. Pi!"

-H: "We truly made a really great album, so we think that you'll really enjoy SCANDAL from this release onwards. Listen to it a lot, and look forward to next month's livestream. Pi!"

-T: "What is this 'pi' anyway?"

Raise de wa Chanto Shimasu
Theme:RINA

Topics tagged under kissfromthedarkness on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 3 I8dTrIy

The first episode of the drama 【Raise de wa Chanto Shimasu】 (I'll Do It Right In My Next Life)
That we sing the theme song for
Aired last night〜!




I also watched it as aired〜
The moment our song aired was so moving〜!

The theme song, "Tonight,"
Was produced by
Track maker SASUKE-kun,
And will be the first track on our album.

The raw drums stacked on top of the track
Are completely different from my own rules,
And with the beat it's finished up pretty freshly.

We've tried many times with other songs
That mix band sounds and driving sounds,
But it feels like this is the one that's worked out the best.

You can also watch it via the streaming service Paravi [only available in Japan],
So by all means〜◎

きのうの夜、第1話が放送されました〜!

私もリアルタイムでみた〜
曲が流れてきた瞬間感動したぁ〜!

主題歌になってる"Tonight"は、
トラックメーカーのSASUKE君に
サウンドプロデュースしてもらった楽曲で、
アルバムの1曲目。

トラックの上に重ねた
生ドラムも自分のルールと全然違う
ビートでかなり新鮮な仕上がりに。

バンドサウンドと打ち込みを混ぜるの
他の曲でも何度かトライしてるけど、
1番しっくりくるのが出来たなって感じになった。

ドラマは動画配信サービス Paravi でも
見られるので是非〜◎

Unveiling the MV for our new song
Theme:RINA


The music video for "A.M.D.K.J."
Has been released!




Hiroshi Usui
Directed this video.

He deepened
The song's cold, dark world view even more,
And it turned out to be an MV with a simple, strong style
That omitted anything unnecessary.


Our outfits were by Ground Y.
Stylish, switchable clothing
With all of us dressed in all black.

A.M.D.K.J. Lyrics




A.M.D.K.J. (Amidakuji) ~ Ghost Leg
Lyrics: RINA ~ Music & Arrangement: MAMI

Harimegurasareta kiseisen
Binkan ni narisugita bukimi na machi wa
Gensou ga unda muhouchitai
Me wo sorashiteru hito bakari

Sono ki ni natte tameshite minatte
Bikashinaide genjitsu wo shitte
Kuso majime ni yatterannai hi mo aru yo
Toki ni, kamidanomi

Unmei no amidakuji norukasoruka no hanashi
Unmei no amidakuji yubi de nazotte

Saa, motto fukaku made
Sono me de mite furete
Wagamonogao ga habikoru
Kono sekai ni iyakegasasu yo
Shinjitsu wa mushoku toumei de
Sukoshi dake tsumetai

Te no naru hou e yottoide
Motto ii koto shiyou yo
Onaji aho nara odoranya sonson
Aa mou yamitsuki ni natteru

Seiron bakka hakisutetenaide
Korikatamatta atama wo hiyashite
Jidaiokure no samui B-kyuu hyouronka-tachi ni
Oshioki wo

Unmei no amidakuji sui mo amai mo watashi
Unmei no amidakuji sotto hiraite

Saa, mune ni tojikometa
Sono omoi tokihanate
Yosoku fukanou na ashita ga kowai no wa
Kimi dake ja nai
Ai nante jiyuujizai ni
Moete kiete yuku

Saa, motto fukaku made
Sono me de mite furete
Wagamonogao ga habikoru
Kono sekai ni iyakegasasu yo
Shinjitsu wa mushoku toumei de
Sukoshi dake tsumetai

Kana:
張り巡らされた規制線
敏感になり過ぎた不気味な街は
幻想が生んだ無法地帯
目を逸らしてる人ばかり

その気になって 試してみなって
美化してないで 現実を知って
クソ真面目にやってらんない日もあるよ
時に、神頼み

運命のあみだくじ 伸るか反るかの話
運命のあみだくじ 指でなぞって

さあ、もっと深くまで
その目でみて触れて
我が物顔がはびこる
この世界に嫌気が差すよ
真実は無色透明で
少しだけ冷たい

手のなる方へ寄っといで
もっといいことしようよ
同じ阿呆なら踊らにゃ損々
ああ もう病みつきになってる

正論ばっか吐き捨ててないで
凝り固まった頭を冷やして
時代遅れの寒いB級評論家達に
お仕置きを

運命のあみだくじ 酸いも甘いも私
運命のあみだくじ そっと開いて

さあ、胸に閉じ込めた
その想い解き放て
予測不可能な明日が怖いのは
君だけじゃない
愛なんて自由自在に
燃えて消えてゆく

さあ、もっと深くまで
その目でみて触れて
我が物顔がはびこる
この世界に嫌気が差すよ
真実は無色透明で
少しだけ冷たい

English Translation

Bound by restrictive lines
This overly sensitive, ominous town
A lawless place born of illusion
People turn back and look away

Get on your feet and try it out
Know the truth without romanticizing it
Sometimes you just can't be so serious
Sometimes you just have to pray

Amidakuji of fate - It's either all or nothing
Amidakuji of fate - Trace it with your finger

There, ever deeper
See it yourself and touch it
I'm sick of this world
Where everyone acts so selfish
The truth is colorless and transparent
And just a little cold

Get closer to the sound of clapping
And let's do even better things
We're all fools here, so why not dance?
Ah, I'm already addicted

Don't just spit out sound arguments
Cool your fanatical head
Punishment will come for those outdated and cold
B-class critics

Amidakuji of fate - I'm both sweet and sour
Amidakuji of fate - Unfold it gently

Come and set free
Those emotions trapped in your heart
You're not the only one who's scared
Of how unpredictable tomorrow is
Love burns freely
And disappears

There, ever deeper
See it yourself and touch it
I'm sick of this world
Where everyone acts so selfish
The truth is colorless and transparent
And just a little cold

7-Net's Reading Girls Interview - Mon Dec 30, 2019 7:30 am

7-Net's Reading Girls - Interview 14: SCANDAL

Topics tagged under kissfromthedarkness on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 3 F0YoGn1

SCANDAL is an all-girl band who writes and composes their own songs, with daily happenings and feelings at a specific moment acting as "seeds of music." They will be releasing 『Kiss from the darkness』, their new album containing 11 songs, on February 12th. "Fuzzy," one of those songs on the album, was inspired by a novel.




Topics tagged under kissfromthedarkness on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 3 0jg5y5F
The lyrics for our digital single "Fuzzy" actually came to be by expanding on the image I have of my favorite book "Itsuka Wakareru. Demo Sore wa Kyou de wa Nai " (Someday, We Will Part Ways. But Today Is Not That Day). For me, reading is a hobby that makes one's time meaningful, whether it's while on the move; while taking a bath; or before going to sleep. So, this was the first time [a book] was the inspirational source for my lyrics! It may be the result of us starting to compose our own music from around 2015, and that everything in our everyday lives can be "seeds of music." (RINA)



These girls use heart-stirring experiences, both good and bad, in their musical activities. The curiosity of desiring to touch a yet-unknown world is the driving force for what's next for them.


Looking back, I had a bit of a superiority complex when I was student when it came to digging up cultures that my classmates didn't know about. The trigger was getting the novel "Gummy Chocolate Pineapple " by Kenji Otsuki when I was in high school. It's a story whose main character likes biased culture such as underground rock music and B-class horror movies, and for me, who didn't even know about the band Red Hot Chili Peppers back then, it was full of things I had no idea about. After I finished reading it, I understood the feelings of men in subcultures who believe, "If you have different values from others, you might be able to do something interesting." When I talked about the culture and knowledge that only I knew about, I was glad to be asked "What's that?" (laughs). (TOMOMI)

"Since pain also comes with production, you can also enjoy a sense of fulfillment" (MAMI)


The accumulation of seeking new stimuli is what's shaping them now. There seemed to be a big challenge to see the yet-unknown scenery during production for this album.


It took a long time, and, honestly, it wasn't all fun and games. Pain also comes with production—rather, it was so tough at times that my chest would tighten. However, since the process was like that, the pleasure and joy after completing it were that much more prevalent. It was a turning point in maturation for both the band and myself. (MAMI)

"I will keep singing the feelings of the members on their behalf" (HARUNA)


However, the completion of this work is just a stepping stone. Their next goal is their world tour starting in March.


On March 7th at Atsugi City Cultural Hall・Large Hall in Kanagawa Prefecture, our world tour spanning roughly one year will begin. Right now, with my singing voice, it's so much fun to express the songs filled with the members' feelings. Through songs, there's a worth that comes with performing, and it brings out emotions that aren't found within you... I think that this is also something that helped me grow. I can't wait to send out who we are right now to those who are looking forward to SCANDAL's music. (HARUNA)
