SEOUL, April 26 (Yonhap) — Boy band GOT7 will release a new Japanese single, “The New Era,” in June and embark on a national tour of Japan to promote it, the group’s management said Thursday.

The album’s title song of the same name, set to be pre-released on May 7, is an energetic hip-hop number featuring the seven-piece band’s mature side and strong masculine beauty, JYP Entertainment said.

“Shining On You,” also on the album, is a bright song that reminds us of a summer atmosphere. It was written, composed and produced by band leader JB.

To promote the new album, GOT7 will hold a tour of six Japanese cities under the title “GOT7 Japan Fan Connecting Hall Tour 2018: The New Era.” The group will perform in Fukuoka on May 15; Osaka on May 17-18; Hiroshima on May 26; Nagoya on May 28; Tokyo on June 18-20 and Sendai on June 23.

Before the album’s release, GOT7 will launch the world tour, “GOT7 2018 World Tour Eyes On You,” with concerts at Jamsil Gymnasium in Seoul on May 4-6.

The group will later makes its way to Bangkok, Macau, Moscow, Berlin, Paris, Taipei and Jakarta. The band will also perform in Toronto, Los Angeles, Houston, New York City and Mexico City, among other cities.
