FT Island is returning to the music scene next month with a new album.

The band’s last release was its eighth EP, “Lock Up,” in December 2021.

The band unveiled a teaser clip of its upcoming ninth EP on social media on Monday.

The teaser clip for the album scheduled for release on Sep. 7 shows the band performing in a living room.

It also casts a spotlight on the performance of the three members of the band -- lead vocalist Lee Hong-gi, bassist Lee Jae-jin and drummer Choi Min-hwan.

FT Island surprised its fans by premiering all the tracks on its ninth EP live during its two-day standalone concert, “Hey Day,” held in Seoul over the weekend.

The band, formed by FNC Entertainment, made its debut in 2007.
