On Aug.2006, a brand new Rock band "SCANDAL" was formed with bright and talented four high school girls in Osaka, Japan. Every weekend since, SCANDAL has been very actively performing at SHIROTEN, a Mecca of Street Live Performance at Osaka Castle Park. Time goes and SCANDAL starts to get offers from clubs and halls around Osaka and Kyoto.

Eventually, more than one hundred fans constantly appear for every single live performance of SCANDAL on street, and positive rumors and the band recognition spread to Nation wide that people in Tokyo start to talk about SCANDAL. On Aug.2007, SCANDAL grabbed the opportunity to participate the special event at Shibuya Club Asia, a most recognized and respected club with the long history in Shibuya, a center of new cultures in Japan. During the SCANDAL's first trip to Tokyo, they were invited to the radio show as guest artists and also some University Fest. invited SCANDAL for the stage. As an Indies band with unreleased songs, SCANDAL unusually and rapidly penetrate into not only the music industry but into the local community as well.

In the upcoming year 2008, SCANDAL will dive into the world of Japanimation and each member turns into an animated character. And the animated SCANDAL will drive the series of short animation movie on the internet. And more to come, on March 3rd, the girls day, the most awaited first original sound source of SCANDAL will officially be released. Right after the release, SCANDAL will depart for Two- Week and Eight-City USA Tour including a participation of the US biggest Animation event, Sakura-Con. The second CD on April 4th and the third on May 5th are now already schedule to be released in three consecutive months. And the SCANDAL's domestic Summer tour is now planed to be in action.

SCANDAL creates sound, composed of Guitar, Bass and Drums, very much unrefined yet they are gifted with a unique sense of POP culture with no restrictions and limitations, and the pure energy. The harmony of incomparable appearances of four individuals comes to the peak at their live performances.

One of the SCANDAL's great advantages is that not only HARUNA, a band leader, main vocal and the guitar, but also other three can sing as lead vocal as well. The real-time high school girls, residents of Osaka ? Nara ? Hyogo, create very straight yet sensitive lyrics that grab the heart of same generations and gain the great sympathy among those girls. Japanese girlie Pop Rock band of the next generation is about to take off from Osaka to the World.

It is a shock to see that they've only just gotten their own thread...I'm just waiting on the announcement of their first album now as it seems to have been way too long coming.

I'm not convinced yet. I really like Shoujo S, but their most their other songs didn't make it onto my iPod. Still, I'll keep an eye on their future releases for sure.

I LOVE these girls :heart: I've been a fan ever since I heard "DOLL", which is still my favourite from them next to "Sakura Goodbye"

Thanks Masa! I knew Ai Otsuka and Shokotan were involved with that tribute album, but I missed Scandal's entry.
