New Album - HONEY
With the band’s newest Epic Record Japan release, SCANDAL [JP]l sought to deliver an album of love songs, told from a female point of view. The band’s eighth studio album, HONEY, dropped on February, 2018 and peaked at #3 on the Japanese Oricon weekly sales charts and extended the band’s streak of being the only girl group to consecutively have each of their albums place the Oricon Top 5. The album features ten tracks including a rendition of the band’s 10th Anniversary single, “Take Me Out.”

SCANDAL [JP] formed in August, 2006 among four high school girls that attended the same vocal and dance school in Osaka, Japan. Taking their name from a shop sign that hung near the studio where they practiced in their early days, the band, which consists of Haruna (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Mami (lead guitar, backing vocals), Tomomi (bass, lead vocals), and Rina (drums, keyboards, guitar, backing vocals), shared a mutual love of western rock bands and artists ranging from Green Day, Foo Fighters and Paramore to the pop styling of Taylor Swift and Pink. SCANDAL [JP] embarked on an extensive world tour in 2015, selling out venues across North America, and Europe. The group continues to hone its dynamic mix of frenetic melody-driven energy mixed with smooth, pop-styled vocals that have become its hallmark.
