“Kiss from the darkness” is the brilliant new album from Japan’s guitar-pop pioneers SCANDAL. After ten years reigning the charts of Japan under Sony Music, the band decided to leave and form their own label. “Kiss from the darkness” is the first album released under the newly formed label, and has been licensed to JPU Records for release overseas. The album includes their first single from the label “Masterpiece”, a powerful, upbeat blast of Japanese pop-rock that has achieved over 1.5 million views on YouTube so far. Latest single A.M.D.K.J. is also the theme song to the latest series of iconic anime GeGeGe no Kitaro.
