Minisode1: Blue Hour was a 5-track follow-up EP, or mini-album, released in October as the group’s first release since the conclusion of the Dream Chapter series. It reached 300K in physical sales within a week of its release, debuting at No. 25 on the Billboard 200 and topping the Top Album Sales chart.
The release marked a career milestone for the group, which began receiving global attention after making its official debut in 2019. Tomorrow x Together recently appeared on The Ellen Show for their US TV talk show performance debut. For the set, the group performed “We Lost The Summer” from Minisode1: Blue Hour.
Earlier this year, Tomorrow x Together released Still Dreaming, its first full-length album in Japanese. The project is made up of ten tracks, including six of the group’s biggest hits re-recorded from their original Korean recordings. Still Dreaming also featured two new intro and outro tracks in addition to their Japanese hits “Everlasting Shine” and “Force.”
The Chaos Chapter: FREEZE is said to find Tomorrow x Together exploring new avenues of their sound, diving into more expansive and in-depth elements of the group’s musicality.
