Pentagon will be coming back with “Thumbs Up!” this fall, eager to meet fans again. The ten-member group has released a series of initial teaser images, featuring eight of the boys in primary colors and two-toned blazers superimposed on simply-patterned backgrounds. The blocky branding behind “Thumbs Up!” reveals nothing yet about what we can expect this comeback to sound like.
This mark’s the group’s seventh mini-album, following on the success of “Positive” released in April of 2018. The album peaked at 10th on the Billboard World Albums chart, and saw the group’s sales almost double between comebacks. The group also released their third Japanese mini-album, “Shine”, in late August of 2018. The group’s previous Japanese release “Violet” from January of 2018 saw the group gaining traction in the Japanese market as the album peaked at 4th on the Oricon chart. Following the immense success of their last album’s lead single “Shine” the group has also made appearances at festivals across Korea over the summer, including a special collaboration performance at KCON LA. E-Dawn and Hui, together with CUBE labelmate Hyuna, also made a comeback as the unit-group Triple H in July of 2018.
Pentagon are currently promoting as eight members as E-Dawn and YanAn take breaks for personal reasons. The group will make their comeback on September 10th, 2018 at 6PM KST.
