J-pop band End of the World - - aka SEKAI NO OWARI in Japan - - is set to release two new albums, respectively called Eye and Lip, simultaneously in their home country Feb. 27.
Fans have been waiting for over four years for the “Dragon Night” band to drop a new album since Tree in January 2015, but the long interval was worth the wait. The four members ended up with too many new songs to fit into one set and decided to divide them up into two collections: Eye showcases the band’s wild side while Lip features its signature pop sound at its best.
The “RPG” quartet also announced the release of its first international album under the End of the World moniker called Chameleon next spring.
The limited first edition of Eye will come with live footage from the band’s recent INSOMNIA TRAIN outdoor concert tour, while Lip will come with a DVD featuring a collection of music videos.
End of the World will kick off a domestic tour accompanying the new projects next April, hitting thirteen cities for twenty-eight shows through the end of August.
