SCANDAL's New Album to Get International Release
Pop-rock band SCANDAL's ninth album will be released overseas via JPU Records on February 14th.
Pop-rock band SCANDAL will release their new album Kiss from the darkness on CD in two editions overseas. The album is the first to be released from the band’s own label "her" and is licensed to JPU Records for international release from February 14th 2020.
The two international editions of Kiss from the darkness include English lyric translations and transliterations, alternate cover art, and one includes an English version of the SCANDAL magazine also entitled "her" – the first time the publication has been available in a language besides Japanese.
SCANDAL have had a number of their tracks used as theme songs for anime series through the years, including "Pokémon", "Bleach" and "Fullmetal Alchemist". Kiss from the darkness expands this further with album track A.M.D.K.J. (pronounced "amidakuji") featuring as the ending theme to the latest series of "GeGeGe no Kitaro".
In addition to all tracks on Kiss from the darkness being written by members of SCANDAL, the band have also collaborated with a number of notable producers for the album. These include 16-year-old DJ SASUKE on Tonight, RADWIMPS bassist Yusuke Takeda on Laundry Laundry, and ex-Kinoku Teikoku frontwoman Chiaki Sato on NEON TOWN ESCAPE amongst others.
Both editions are now available for pre-order here.
