This new album will release in both Korea and China for each of their groups, EXO-K and EXO-M.
This album will include their title song, "Overdose," as well as "Moonlight", "Thunder", "Run", "Love Love Love" for a total of 5 songs.
They also worked with The Underdogs, Kenzie and others for this album as well.
EXO-K will make their comeback on KBS "Music Bank" on April 18 and continue with their comeback stages this weekend.
EXO-M will hold their comeback press conference in China as well as appear on a Chinese music program.
They will also be holding their 'EXO Comeback Show' on April 15.
EXO formed in 2011, and it is made up of 12 members in total and is also separated into two subgroups, Exo-K and Exo-M.
Exo made its official debut in 2012 with the release of its debut single, "Mama." The single was a moderate success; Exo-M's version topped mainland Chinese music charts after only one day of release, and Exo-K's "Mama" music video reached number seven on YouTube's Global Chart. The groups two alsbums, the 2012 debut EP Mama and the 2013 comeback studio album XOXO, were major commercial successes, selling over 1.5 million units in total worldwide. With XOXO, Exo became the youngest boy band to win Album of the Year at the Mnet Asian Music Awards, and the fastest-selling K-pop artist in twelve years. The lead singles off XOXO, "Wolf" and "Growl", were K-pop hits, landing first place trophies on music shows from all three of Korea's major free-to-air broadcast stations. The latter also peaked at number three on Billboard's Korea K-Pop Hot 100 Chart.
The group received numerous rookie awards in 2012, and has since won over forty awards since their debut in April 2012.
