During the January 26th 2014 Big Bang +a In Seoul concert, Big Bang's leader G-Dragon announced that the group would be making a comeback as a complete unit by Summer 2014. G-Dragon noted that the group had returned to the stadium where they had held their first concert, after having traveled throughout the world. G-Dragon provided the reason for the comeback announcement by stating, "I feel sorry for our fans as well, and the way to make that feeling disappear is to release an album, and show it to you first". This statement was in regards to the fact that the fan base surrounding Big Bang has rapidly expanded, yet the group has not released an album since 2012's Alive EP, which led to the successful Big Bang Alive Galaxy Tour. The last complete Korean studio album by Big Bang was the 2008 release Remember.
