On the morning of March 13th,a staff member of YGE made a phone call with OSEN news. They stated “When Big Bang makes their comeback in Japan on the 28th, they will promote in Japan and Korea at the same time. Big Bang will start their Japanese promotions in the following week, but they will also continue to carry out their promotional activities in Japan, Korea and several other countries at the same time.”
Big Bang will be releasing a Japanese album which consists of 9 songs (those from the “ALIVE” album as well as 2 new ones). All of the lyrics and melodies were composed by G-Dragon.
G-Dragon shared his feelings through the local press, “We are back to producing good music and are focused on improving our stage performance. Big Bang members are expected to develop their own colors. Last year, there were several things that hapened, and now we can realize the importance of fans, the stage and music. We are grateful and sorry to the fans. Now, we will try to not make them worry and hope that they will be able to find us through our albums and concerts.”
After the release of their album, Big Bang is going to start their concert tour from 17th of May in 5 Japan cities and a total of 130,000 people are expected to participate.
On 31st, they will participate in ‘Spring Groove’ Hip Hop festival in Japan with 2NE1.
