Korean rock band FT Island unveiled a teaser video and cover for their new mini-album today, according to the band's agency FNC Music on Wednesday.
A press release from FNC announced that the group, who will be returning to the local music scene after a year, will be releasing their second mini-album titled "beautiful journey" on August 25.
"The group has carried out various music tests and experiments and was able to incorporate the necessary elements for the upcoming release,” an official from FNC explained, adding that the band will put on a sophisticated concept for the new album.
FT Island (Five Treasure Island), is composed of members Lee Hong-ko, Lee Jae-jin, Song Seung-hyun, Choi Min-hwan and Choi Jong-hoon. The indie band made their debut into the mainstream Korean pop scene with the first album "Cheerful Sensibility" in June 2007.
They have also managed to pursue an active music career in Japan, releasing two major single albums "Flower Rock" and Brand-new days," both of which ranked within the top 5 spots on the prestigious Oricon album chart when it went on sale in May and July, respectively.
FT Island will begin promoting the mini-album one day after its release in Korea.
