SCANDAL 36-Track Best Album Out Now in UK and Europe

03 Mar SCANDAL 36-Track Best Album Out Now in UK and Europe

A two-disc self-titled best album from SCANDAL – one of Japan’s most popular pop-rock girl bands – has been released on CD and digital formats in the UK and Europe from 3 March, 2017 via JPU Records. The collection features 34 tracks from the quartet’s ten-year career, as well as two new songs, and is available now at Amazon (here) and other retailers, and is also available as a limited edition CD, poster and T-shirt bundle direct from JPU Records (here).

Described as “bigger than the proverbial Godzilla” by The Huffington Post Blog, and “among Japan’s biggest and most accomplished pop-rock outfits” by Rock Sound, SCANDAL’s popularity at home and abroad has blossomed since forming in 2006. The band’s videos on YouTube have amassed over 73 million views and all seven of SCANDAL’s studio albums have made it into the top five of Japan’s official Oricon album chart, with latest album YELLOW reaching number two, their highest chart position so far. Their music has also been featured in a number of popular TV shows and films, including hit anime series such as BleachPokémon and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

Commenting on the new best of album, RINA (drummer and vocalist) comments, “This is already one of my favourite SCANDAL albums! Fans voted which songs to include, and then we picked the order. It makes our previous songs sound different. There are also two news songs; FREEDOM FIGHTERS, this is a rock tune that we cannot wait to play on our next overseas tour; and HELLO, which is more of a heart-warming song.”

The album contains several of SCANDAL’s career defining tracks, including; SCANDAL BABY (“If SCANDAL was a country, this would be its national anthem!” says bass-player TOMOMI); most recent single Take me out (“I really enjoying playing this live and hearing the audience sing back the chorus,” states RINA); EVERYBODY SAY YEAH (“It’s a cheerful song. We can feel united jumping around and singing this one,” comments guitarist MAMI; and Awanaitsumorino Genkidene (“This song is very special. It was our first to be released after fulfilling our dream of playing at the Osaka-jo Hall” reminisces lead vocalist and guitarist HARUNA)

The limited edition CD and T-shirt bundle features a T-shirt collaboration between SCANDAL and popular Harajuku brand Candy Stripper. All versions of the album bought direct from JPU Records will include a poster and lyric translations and transliterations.

    Even if they stood on each other’s heads they still wouldn’t be bigger than Godzilla. Looking forward to buying this album.
