Hongjoong, who has composed songs for all of the group’s albums, revealed that he likes to write minimal songs. He laughs and says:

“I tell you, I was obsessed with music filled with little sounds. However, when I started producing for the band, I was looking for fantastic films and I started browsing wonder.”

He went on to say,

“Rather than refer to it, I wanted to have more diverse thoughts.”

The singer also teased their upcoming album saying,

“Since our beginnings, we have tried captivating intensity and also playful intensity. As it’s built up, there’s this notion that it’s ATEEZ, whatever genre we’re trying. With our next album, I would like to break the style of the band once again. Are you going to say that there is also this kind of intensity? We can do it.”

Meanwhile, the band have released new dates for the European leg of their world tour. The band has canceled additional shows for the ATEEZ WORLD TOUR THE FELLOWSHIP: BEGINNING OF THE END IN EUROPE in Madrid, London and Berlin.
