Beomgyu said, “It’s the first album where the members contributed to all the tracks on the list. We really felt that we’ve advanced as an artist.”
“Many people praised our albums on ‘The Chaos Chapter’ series as masterpieces, and we’re very proud of it.

We hope to prove TXT’s music never disappoints,” said Taehyun.
