SCANDAL - Pay Back Day


We can announce another great catch for the OEF's PUNK AS FUCK FEST which are the rough street punk fighters from Romania, SCANDAL!!! The band shows us a bit different side of punk than we are used to at OEF. In their music, we can find both punk melodies and sing-along songs so typical for Oi music!!! SCANDAL have been around since 1998. Having released two albums the name SCANDAL goes up but the band split to reunite with three members of the original line-up after long 6 years. However, the reunion took place in London where they are located now!!!

A new album "On a Roll" was released this year and SCANDAL also celebrated its 20th anniversary by a sold-out gig on home soil in Bucharest!!! The number of 400 visitors proves us right to await great punk rock and rock'n'roll show at the OEF!!!


SCANDAL is a street-punk band based in London, UK. The band was formed in 1998 in Romania, where they released 2 albums, played lots of shows all around the country and the countries nearby and became one of the most popular punk bands in the Romanian subterranean scene, the band of the working class that any punk or metalhead would love to watch live. Their sing-along choruses talking about punk life, drinking and hanging around with friends or the immortal hymn against police ‚Patrula Suge Pula’ (Police Patrol Sucks Cock) became notorious in the local scene. In 2016, after a long 6 years hiatus, Scandal reunited in London with three of the original members. Since 2016 they released 2 self-produced EPs / MCDs and a full lenght album called “On A Roll” LP / CD, released in February 2018 with the German street-punk label Spirit Of The Street Records. The album contains 10 tracks, all in English, with some streetpunk singalongs, social lyrics and drinking anthems, it was released in 12”LP format, in three different colors (black, purple and yellow), limited to 300 copies and it is almost sold-out at the moment. A repress is in-pending for 2019, together with the official release of a new EP and a new album that is already in the process of recording at the moment.

In 2017 the band started to play live again , opening for bands like The Filaments, The Generators, The Vibrators, had many UK shows, played at the Undercover Festival 2018 and had their 20 years old anniversary show in Bucharest, Romania where they managed to bring together more than 400 of their old and new fans in a spectacular exclusive show. A Romanian tour is set-up for November / December 2018, including five of the biggest Romanian cities, Scandal is confirmed again on a really good slot in the main-day of Undercover Festival 2019,
this time in London at The Dome and several summer dates are already confirmed for mainland Europe in June / July 2019, alongside several open air appearances in Romania.
