SCANDAL say “HELLO” to all over the world. Their new Blu-ray/DVD “Hello World” is out on December 23.
The contents follow the band’s first & big world tour, going around eight countries (10 gigs) that attracted 20,000 audience.
Why a member shown on the cover artwork squatted down and seemingly . . . is praying? The back print of her T-shirt has a strong message in kanji “世界進出,” meaning “advancing in the world.”
For more details, I would like you to confirm what happened to them in their tour with your own eyes.
Scandal (スキャンダル Sukyandaru?, stylized as SCANDAL) is an all-female Japanese rock band from Osaka. Formed in August 2006 by four high school girls, they played live street performances until they were noticed and signed to the indie label Kitty Records. In 2008, they released three singles and a mini-album while performing shows in the United States, France, and Hong Kong. That October, Scandal released their major debut single, “Doll”, under Epic Records Japan.
The band has performed the theme songs for many anime, including “Shōjo S” and “Harukaze” for Bleach and “Shunkan Sentimental” for Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. With numerous overseas performances and anime theme songs, Scandal has built a considerable international fanbase.
