About SCANDAL [JP]
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.
