Hello,
Been enjoying the content here as a lurker for a few months and decided to finally join the group.

I'm relatively new to Scandal. I'm from Atlanta, GA in the US. A friend here had suggested listening to Scandal. We met through Band-Maid. We roomed together in 2019 during the most recent Band-Maid US tour seeing all the shows across the US, it was only 4 (out of 5) Happy. We missed the 5th show because they announced it after we had already booked our flights and accommodations.

Anywho... I digress. I had listened to a little bit of Scandal after his suggestion but they never really took hold until about midway through last year.

I had a ticket for their Kiss from The Darkness show that was scheduled here in ATL in 2020 and we all know how that turned out. I had initially bought the ticket as means of showing support to Japanese bands that ATL is a viable market for them in the hopes fo getting Band-Maid here as well.

Well... given all the time we had at last year I circled back to Scandal. I think the song that really got my interest Masterpiece. Something about that song and the PV really resonated with me. From there I stared diving deeper. Came across Space Ranger and was finally hooked. Soo many good songs they have in their extensive library. I love their mix of pop, punk, ska, rock, 90s alternative, jazz, blues... love Mami and Rina's voices (wish there were more lead vocals from them) and was floored by Dobondobondo LOL.

This band is fantastic! Such great harmonies, song writing, and interesting lyrics. Really love their chemistry on stage as well. I have binged all of their live shows (yes, not official vids, mea culpa) and love their big arena stage shows with all the pageantry. I teared up when Tomo did at Osaka-Jo Hall, I understood what that show meant to her and the rest of the band, very emotional! Happy

Anywho... thanks for having me here and I look forward to more from this amazing group of talented ladies! Hoping that the rescheduled show from last year to this year actually happens now that I have deeper appreciation for the band.

Cheers and keep rockin'!
Brian

Hi Brian !

Welcome to the active part of SH, we are not that scary, well only a few of us Happy

I am from the UK and I was also looking forward to seeing them again in London, I saw them in 2015 and they are awesome live.

There are quite a few Japanese all girl groups as you probably know , I also like Band Maid and also LOVEBITES but I have followed SCANDAL from the beginning thanks to seeing a tiny ad for them in Anime News.

I also like many Japanese idols as everyone here already knows, hope you have fun here.

Hello and welcome Brian! Thanks for interesting intro.
I'm from Russia. 
Like you I already knew about BAND-MAID. 
And It was 2014 or 2015. I listened BABYMETAL and BAND-MAID and just searched something similar. So I found SCANDAL.
Hope to see them live again soon!

Hello Brian, welcome to SH.

I ended up rediscovering music last year with all that spare time and like yourself Masterpiece grabbed my attention although I was aware of Scandal prior to watching the PV on YouTube.

I also enjoy Band-Maid, Silent Siren and Elfriede but Scandal will always be my first love as their music got me through a tough period at the end of last year so they have a special place in my heart.

Dobondobondo is just too good for words love the Tomo and Mami combo.

Hi Brian, welcome to SH! I'm Arthur from Manila, Philippines. I've been a huge fan of SCANDAL since July 2014. I also listen to other types of Japanese music specially city pop, soul, funk, and even music of j-pop idols. 

Like most of us, we failed to see SCANDAL both on stage and on livestream because of this ugly situation. Hope we can talk more about SCANDAL and other music that we love.

Anyway, are you friends with Chester aka Saldiven here on SH? He's a huge fan of Band-Maid as well.

Ha! Yes! Chester is who I roomed with in 2019 for the Band-Maid US tour. It is his fault that I listen to Scandal now!.  [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
