On July 27, the boys sat down for an interview with Star News, and stated, "We are thinking of preparing for a new album some time soon. Though a release date has not been confirmed, we are hoping to release a new album within the year."
The rookie boy group released their 4th mini album 'Dream Part. 01' last month, and began a domestic concert series with 'The 1st ASTROAD to Seoul' from July 15-16.
Furthermore, the boys are looking to head over to Japan in August, alongside their attendance at 'KCON 2017 LA'. The group relayed, "We are looking to prepare for our new album after our shows in Japan and the U.S.A." They also added, "Since the previous album was titled 'Dream Part. 01', our next album may be something along the lines of 'Dream Part. 02.' We are aiming for an end-of-the-year release and wish to perform on stage at the awards ceremonies."
