Fresh is the Word

Interview with Japanese Rock Band SCANDAL, New Album「MIRROR」Available Now (in English and Japanese)

This summer, the amazing Japanese rock band Scandal trekked to the United States for their own headlining summer tour for the release of their 10th full-length album 「MIRROR」. Unfortunately, the band had to cut their tour short half way through as the members of the band caught COVID and returned their homeland Japan. Towards the beginning of the tour, Fresh is the Word was able to correspond with the band via email and get their thoughts on the new album, creative inspiration, and the relationships within the bands. Even though the tour was cancelled, no need for this interview to go to waste. Hopefully, they make another trip to the USA soon!
