K-pop group g,o.d., which made its debut in 1999.

(Yonhap) — A popular Korean boy band from the early 2000s, “g.o.d.”, will release a new full-length album next month for the first time in nine years, the group’s management agency said Friday.

The group’s eighth full-length album will hit shelves on July 9, sidusHQ said, without releasing the album’s title. Major tracks on the album will become available online one day before the album’s release, it added.

The five-member idol group officially reunited and made a comeback after nine years apart with the single “The Lone Duckling.” The single hit major domestic music charts upon its release.

The group is also scheduled to hold concerts to mark its 15th anniversary at Seoul’s Jamsil Stadium on July 12-13 before making a concert tour of major provincial cities such as Gwangju, Busan, Daegu and Daejeon.

g.o.d. first made its debut in 1999 with the single “Dear Mother” and produced many hit songs such as “Lie,” “One Candle,” “Love and Memories” and “Road,” among others.

After Yoon Kye-sang left the group in 2004 to work as an actor, the group released its sixth and seventh albums without Yoon in 2004 and 2005. The group’s remaining four members had since pursued individual paths without an official breakup of the team.
