I'll be posting translations of the interview BARKS recently did with SCANDAL regarding arena performances + their upcoming Yokohama Arena performances.

I'll split it up into 3 sections and post them one at a time, and I'll try to get them all done before the performances this weekend.

Here's the first part.

We feel like we get stronger and that we can do anything:

Furthermore, the Yokohama Arena performance on 6/29 will be broadcast live on WOWOW."

Does this mean we are able to watch whole concert live online? Please explain to me how to do that >.<

WOWOW is a Japan-only TV channel so you cannot watch it live unless you are actually in Japan and can order the channel. Bottom line is there's nothing you can do but wait until someone records it and uploads the concert online.

MAMI didn't say anything about 360°; she only just mentioned past videos without alluding to any specific performance(s). Plus, since they do not mention 360° at all in this interview, it had to have definitely been conducted before it. You can also tell by the pictures. MAMI still has blonde hair, not the orange bob she has now, so this interview was conducted before at least the end of May.

Edit: According to the EXIF info of this picture, the shoot + interview was on May 22nd.

------------------------------------------

Also, I'm surprised that by "performing songs limited to just that day" most of you guys think that they'll be performing songs they played before but don't usually play. I get more of a feeling that they mean that they will play songs that they have never performed before and possibly never will again. It could be old songs, it could be new songs, it could be covers. I guess we'll see!

to make it seem more like "We're so close!" to those watching <SCANDAL ARENA LIVE 2014 「FESTIVAL」>, it'll be like you're getting closer to us. We'll run around going "Wahhh" (laughs).

 .tsk. Mami, crazy as ever haha. It would be good to see them going crazy around the stage while the live is going on haha

I'll just wait for someone to upload it. (I hope the quality would be decent haha)

Here's the second part.

While you're watching our lives we want you to forget everything that bothers you:


That part about not always wearing in-ear monitors got me thinking about how dangerous and damaging to their hearing that is, especially if they're not wearing any other kind of hearing protection. HARU and RINA say that they usually always wear them (Edit: And here is a picture from RINA's latest blog of her wearing her IEM), but I'm kind of concerned for MAMI's and TOMO's hearing (you can see here and here that neither of them wear any kind of auditory protection for regular lives). I know firsthand that constantly going to concerts without any hearing protection is definitely damaging, and that would be pretty bad for the band if any of them develop/have hearing loss. (´Д`)

Preferably, we'd really like to play close to everyone's houses

I misread it as "Preferably, we'd like to play to everyone's houses"   TOJ Onion NEVER.GONNA.HAPPEN. lol

I'm totally that kind of person : "I'll be depressed at school again, tomorrow" Lol.
That's why I should definitely watch SCANDAL's live to be motivated haha

So Mami and Tomomi doesn't use ear monitors at live houses?
I've heard of ear monitors but I did not understand a thing why it should be worn lol.

 Oh I see. Now I understand why they wear them.
Maybe they're quite used to loud sounds and doesn't bother wearing one anymore (but in the Arenas)
Maybe Tomomi is having problems with in ear monitors (I heard they can be uncomfortable), like in the OJH- it kept falling and she always had to fix it.
Mami too had a time like that (in the Kagen instructional), she kept touching her iEM even when it's just perfectly staying still.

But I hope they won't develop/have hearing problems/loss.

Yeah, totally. I wore monitors (just not plugged into anything) while at a live house just last night to protect my ears, and I've done the same at some of the Scandal lives when my seats were very close to the PA. There's no way they can tour, playing all those shows, and not damage their ears if they keep going without protection.

You can't ever be "used to" hearing loud sounds, at least not normally. Loud sounds are loud sounds and all are very damaging to your hearing, especially if you're constantly exposed to them. If you get "used to" them, I think that would mean that you have a serious hearing problem!

Yeah, definitely not. I hope those two wise up and start wearing something!

Well, i'm pretty sure they're aware about the damage they get/are getting (RIGHT? RIGHT? RIGHT?   Onion Tsk )
Those two better starts wearing one every time like Rina! .shout. 
Why isn't like Eisuke or some staff strict about it?  .wew. anyways, they should wear one even at live houses.

Its not like their manager or their staff are their "parents" its up to the girls to take care of themselves as adults. I thought it was a given, that any artist would do something to protect their hearing if they're performing this regularly.... I've never played on stage or anything but its got to ridiculously loud on stage even if the enormous speakers aren't pointed directly at you... It won't be a laughing matter when the two get tinnitus or hearing loose even if it's happening now.



SCANDAL Haruna .happy. SCANDAL Mami Nice one SCANDAL Tomomi  .lol.  SCANDAL Rina .uhuh. SCANDAL

Yes sadly everyone is right !
I played in many British groups in the 1960's and 1970's ( nobody famous ) and most of them have damaged hearing now.
People did not realise it was dangerous then but Scandal do not have that excuse.

One band called 'Pink Fairies' was so loud that people's ears used to bleed !

Thanks for the translations! This is a great interview, it's always nice to know how they feel about their live concerts :3

Now this thing about Mami and Tomomi not wearing monitors got me really worried D: Not that it justifies that, but they must have a reason to do that, it's not like it makes sense to ~just not wear them~. I hope they realize this is dangerous.
I mean, when I played concerts with my band, small concerts of a garage band, I already had a lot of trouble because we didn't have any protection for our ears. I can't imagine playing in a professional band without ear protection. That's not funny, I hope they start wearing them for every concert.   Onion Tsk

let's just hope the girls know what's bad for them - they are professionals after all. my guess is they're so used to not wearing any ear protection that they simply overlook it and became a habit. there must be some precautions setup for this kind of things. right? right?(I'm looking at you Eisuke)

one can't help but worry. :S
