SCANDAL is releasing a new album “Yellow” on March 2, 2016. The album includes new songs released in 2016 “Stamp!” & “Sisters” and more tracks produced by the members themselves (13 tracks total, subject to change).
There are two limited editions available. One of which comes with a bonus T-shirt while the other comes with a bonus DVD. The regular edition comes with a sticker as the first pressing bonus.
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.
