Which VPN do you use? I couldn't watch more than 3 seconds of the live stream...

There will probably be a JPU version with translations as well. I saw they announced a world tour too, but still without the dates and places of overseas concerts

whoo! was hoping for a new album! Happy

The title and the cover art are very interesting, totally different from their past stuff, even their singles this year were a different look than usual. I'm interested to hear what kind of theme or sound they're going for for this album.

I'm also interested to see what the documentary will be about, and what the other 2 music videos will be, these editions and goods sound really cool.

Weird question, but does HMV ship overseas?

Really cool jacket artwork this time.

I think this might be the first time I don't get all the editions. This release has kind of a steep price. But if I interpret the description correctly, the boxed edition comes with all the other goodies?

4 editions? It's gonna burn a hole in your wallet

As the "de luxe" edition only has the music video & T-shirt it looks like you'll have to get Type A for the documentary film & Type B for the copy of "her" magazine. That's a total of 16,300 yen or 116.64 pounds sterling according to Forex. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

They do, but shipping's a little steep at at least $20+ for one item, no matter what it is.

Not quite. It's its own edition that has its own unique perks.

It contains a DVD (which is a music video collection) and a t-shirt. It does NOT contain the magazine that comes in the Magazine Edition, and it has a different DVD from the DVD Edition (which is a documentary film).

That's correct. And if you want to get all four editions (Regular, DVD, Magazine, and DVD+T-Shirt), that would be 19,300 yen.

Good lord. It's been a long time since I've bought multiple versions of their recordings but they're practically forcing my hand here. Well, I feel like I've been saving up for over the past 18 months or so since they haven't been releasing as much physical stuff as they used to, so it should be ok. Definitely getting at least the DVD version + magazine version. Debating whether or not to get the T-shirt version too (I really want the videos on disc, but I just wish it was a Blu-Ray like their other official music video releases).

I have to say I smiled when I heard the name of the album and saw the cover. It is just so, so different from any of their other albums. "Kiss from the darkness" is such an awesome title, and I even like that it seems to be written that way, in sentence case.

SCANDAL will be releasing their first album from their private label next February. They will also be holding a world tour starting in March

SCANDAL will be releasing 『Kiss from the darkness』, their first album release from their private label 「her」, on February 12th (Wed).

This will be SCANDAL's overall 9th album, and their first album release in two years since their previous album 『HONEY』. A total of 11 songs will be on it, including the singles released via 「her」: "Masterpiece," "Mabataki," "Fuzzy," "Saishuuheiki, Kimi."

There will be a total of four editions: Regular, DVD (Limited Edition A), Magazine (Limited Edition B), and DVD+T-Shirt (Deluxe Limited Edition). The DVD Edition contains a DVD with a documentary film that follows the members for one year following the establishment of their private label 「her」. The Magazine Edition includes Vol.2 of 『”her” Magazine』, the magazine that was also included in their February single 『Masterpiece / Mabataki』. The DVD+T-Shirt Edition includes a deluxe box that comes with a DVD containing a music video collection, and also includes a t-shirt with the album's cover printed on it. Additionally, they announced that there will be purchaser bonuses, such as an original clear file given to those who preorder the album, and those who purchase from select chain stores. Other details will be announced at a later date.

Vocalist HARUNA said, "I think that you can feel new challenges and experimental parts from songs one has already released, but there's still much more you haven't seen yet. We have confidence in this album; it's insane. Our creative energy is exploding." Drummer RINA, who wrote the lyrics for many of the songs, talked about the about the inner theme of the album: "I think that we were able to take all of our ups and downs, strengths and weaknesses and turn them all into seeds of music, and then turn those into songs. 'Whatever happens, it'll be okay. Somehow, it will be'—that's what's included in the title 『Kiss from the darkness』."

The album covers were also released at the same time. They were made by the collage artist Q-TA, who also handled the covers for their single 『Masterpiece / Mabataki』, and who active both abroad and overseas. Q-TA said this about the artwork: "I gave attention to their innocent aspects hidden among their intensity, and I expressed the current SCANDAL as who they are on the inside, not on the outside."

Additionally, they will be holding a world tour starting next March called 「SCANDAL WORLD TOUR 2020 “Kiss from the darkness”」 in support of this new album. They will be holding a domestic hall tour consisting of 19 performances that starts from 3/7 (Sat) at Atsugi City Cultural Hall in Kanagawa and concludes on 5/5 (Tue) and 5/6 (Wed) with two performances at ORIX Theatre in Osaka. They will also be conducting performances overseas. Information on the overseas performances will be announced at a later date.

I'm probably looking forward to this album more than any of their previous albums, ever. Because I just don't really know what to expect, and that's kind of exciting. Both the title and Rina's explanation makes me think that they've gone through some tough times in the past little while, or maybe even for longer than that, and now they're finally expressing that. I cannot imagine an album from them with this title, this cover and then Rina's explanation for the music under Sony.

Of course I don't expect it's going to be some dark gothic album either, and we already know four of the songs, none of which are huge departures for them. But even one or two of those songs are a little darker sounding and heavier than they used to be. So I doubt it's going to be a total sea change, but I feel like they've now fully dropped the pretense of being a perpetually happy pop band. They are becoming artists. A lot of great art comes from pain, and they are embracing that as a part of their experience now.

The evolution of this band has just been really interesting to watch.

But ugh! I still can't decide which editions to buy and from where. I have a feeling I will end up ordering all three LE's from somewhere. $150 for a single album! But, well, my Pink Floyd Immersion sets weren't much less than that. And in addition to just wanting to collect all the stuff on all these editions, I really want to do what I can to keep them in business too. So I guess it's mainly just down to where I want to buy from, depending on the bonuses.

Just so others are clear, the her Magazine for M & M was vol. 1... if they're interested in randomly collecting that Wink

Yay, finally another album, it seems like ages. My Japanese music collection has grown ridiculously since the last one, but without Scandal it was feeling a bit empty somehow.

I also went to order the HMV one (for Haruna clearfile, obviously). The tumbler looks like it can only be collected from an HMV/Loppi physical store, you can't get it shipped.

Interested to see their definition of a 'world' tour this time - while I'm hoping for a European/SE Asian leg to be included, here's hoping they do one leg for cities in S America. Long overdue, that!

I like the title of the album. It has the feeling of the 80's. The kind of music that was produced by the lady on Mami’s back on this photo. So Mami's post was not a coincidence:

I preordered the 3 LE's from HMV. Priced out doing separate orders for different bonuses from different retailers, but it didn't seem to make financial sense and it was expensive enough as it is. So I guess I'm getting 3 Haruna and 3 Scandal clear folders!

HMV has two product listings for each release, just so everyone's clear on that - it seems like the tumbler bonus does not come with the regular listings. The ones with the tumbler are actually more expensive. I googled what the tumbler probably will look like (HMV has done this before) and wasn't all that impressed anyway.

And for anyone who is thinking about ordering multiple versions and is trying to keep the cost down, HMV right now seems to be the clear winner. The total was about $10 less than Amazon and about $18 less than CD Japan for all three versions plus shipping.
