TXT Is Coming In January With Their Fifth EP. Hybe said on Thursday during a company meeting that Tomorrow X Together would be releasing their fifth extended play (EP) in January 2019. About nine months have passed since the release of its previous EP, “Minisode 2: Thursday’s Child,” which opened at No. 4 on the Billboard 200.
The album has the longest chart run of any boy band album at 14 weeks. To my knowledge, this will be the first album by a Hybe artist or group to be released in 2019. This past month, TXT brought the group their first nominations ever, at both the MTV Europe Music Awards and the American Music Awards.
The band finished its first-ever international tour, dubbed “Act: Love Sick,” last month. The trip hit 13 different locations across 5 different continents and featured 19 performances. It left for Chile on Thursday to perform in a group concert for a Korean television music chart show.
