SCANDAL to Release GREATEST HITS Exclusively in the UK and Europe – 4 May

SCANDALOne of Japan’s leading all-girl groups, SCANDAL, will release a special collection of their greatest hits exclusively in Europe on 4 May 2015.

The powerful Japanese pop-rock band is currently preparing for their first world tour, taking place between April and May. To mark the occasion JPU Records will release a special compilation CD of the band’s biggest singles and fan favourite tracks.

Entitled GREATEST HITS – EUROPEAN SELECTION, the album will be SCANDAL’s first to not be released in Japan, and is instead exclusive to the UK and Europe. The collection features 15 tracks, including their feisty 2008 debut single DOLL – which has racked up over one million hits on YouTube – as well as seven of their top-ten chart smashing singles (Oricon Weekly Singles Chart) and four catchy pop-punk songs featured as theme-tunes and insert songs from popular Japanese anime.

This will be the first time several tracks from SCANDAL’s back catalogue has been made available outside of Japan, and includes a booklet containing lyrics translated into English and Romaji. This album will not be available for digital download or streaming.

Akihabara Kimono Trio to Hold First Overseas Performance at HYPER JAPAN

Heisei Kotohime

HYPER JAPAN Festival has already revealed the attendance of visual rockers Lost Ash in its line-up, and now things are set to become a whole lot cuter with the freshly announced arrival of J-pop trio Heisei Kotohime, confirmed for this summer’s event at The O2 in London between 10-12 July.

Heisei Kotohime burst onto the scene from the infamous streets of Akihabara, Tokyo’s capital for all things otaku and electronic. The group combines traditional aspects and sounds of Japan with idol culture. Each member has their own unique and colourful kimono, as well as a specially redesigned version of Japan’s national instrument, the koto.

Catch the girls at their first show outside of Japan exclusively in London at HYPER JAPAN this July. Here’s a special video message they recorded for the event:
