Japanese rock band SCANDAL performed at the C3 Anime Festival Asia Singapore 2019 on Friday (Nov. 29).

The four-woman group hit the stage and opened the set with "Masterpiece," released in March, then went on to rock the festival crowd with a string of hits tied to various movies and anime series familiar to international audiences, including "Shunkan Sentimental," "Shoujo S," "Yoake no Ryuuseigun" and "HARUKAZE."

The band also premiered a new number called "A.M.D.K.J." (pronounced "amidakuji," a kind of lottery), to be featured as the ending theme of the Fuji TV anime GeGeGe no Kitaro beginning in January. SCANDAL's C3AFA set closed with a new track called "Saishuheiki, Kimi" and the upbeat dance number "Take Me Out."

SCANDAL is set to release a new studio album called Kiss from the darkness on Feb. 12, 2020, and will embark on a world tour promoting the album in March. The tour includes 19 domestic concerts and four engagements abroad, with more international dates to be announced later.
