SCANDAL; “Senkou Riot 2014” blogpost by RINA☆
“Senkou Riot 2014! 10 bands selected from amongst over 10,000 groups; The amazing energy was super cool! I really received strength from it! Us too, had been waiting in anticipation for this day, and before this, we’d also listened to the source of the sound by the finalists☺︎ That’s why, I was happy to hear it live! And then, during the MC, they’d came right up and expressed their thoughts to us, which was really inspirational. It was too wonderful.”
“It was also fun that there was a dance contestー…that was nostalgic. Dance is cool after all and I like it! Without us knowing, the time had passed☺︎ It might’ve been like a marathon and tough for the audiences, but I’m happy everyone held on to their energy right up till the end! Thank you very much!”
“We’ll meet again next time☺︎ This year’s August has had more of all sorts of feelings as compared to the usual.”
“※ Extra: My hair is now the brightest it has ever been in my life☺︎ Announcing this for the first time…”
SCANDAL; “the end of summer” blogpost by HARUNA☆
“Yesterday, we appeared as guests on「Senkou Riot 2014」. For these teenagers, this is the final victory or defeat of their Summer. While watching the lives of these 10 groups of finalists, I was touched and all heated up inside. I genuinely enjoyed it…it didn’t feel like a marathon at all, and I was in a complete trance! With all these various bands, it’s a given that they’ll have different colours and ways of singing and presenting themselves, however, everyone really understood about themselves, and showed it with their words and sound…that was the highlight.”
“I myself, have gone by carrying the dream of being a singer when I was in my 10s. I wonder if I’d have been proud of the me then…that was what I thought! However, without doubt, I like music and it was day in which I think of how glad I am to be able to continue. It has come for us to raise the generation that’s younger than us. More and more, to become cool musicians.”
“The band that received the prize, the bands that did not, there is no reason for who is better and who is more inferior. As everyone is really wonderful, I hope you’ll just believe that as it is and lunge forward. At yesterday’s live, there were a lot of people who were saved by it. I’m one of those people as well! Even to you whose reading this blog, you’ll always, always love music right!”
“To bring Summer to a finish, it’s been well-spent and was fantastic. Writing this today, I can feel it’s a recap for all the many festivals and events this Summer. I’m thankful to all the people whose met with SCANDAL’s music! This month, there’s the SCANDAL LIVE HOUSE “10” DAYS「Kyu ni Kite Moratte Gomen. 2014 ~Shinkyoku Yaru Kara Kiite Yo~」. I’m happy that the Tokyo • Akasaka BLITZ is SOLD OUT. As there are still days with tickets left for the Osaka • Dojima River Forum, I think it’ll be great if we could meet again. Summer, it’s been fun＼(^o^)／”
