After nearly 1 1/2 years of inactivity, EXILE will be returning with new music and a tour.
Starting in February, the group will be releasing a new song on the first Friday of the month for 6 consecutive months. Its first new song is titled "PARTY ALL NIGHT ~STAR OF WISH~" which will be released on February 2.
6 months of consecutive music releases will carry the group through July. A new album will be released over the summer. An exact release date is not currently set.
In addition to the new music, EXILE will be going on a dome tour. Details about the tour's schedule will be released at a later date.
On August 31, 2016, EXILE's lead vocalist ATSUSHI decided to take a break from Japanese activities until 2018. ATSUSHI explained that he wanted to grow as an artist and be able to compete in the global music scene.
Due to ATSUSHI's hiatus, EXILE has been on limited activities for the past 1 1/2 years. No new music has been released from the group during this time.
