Stray Kids announced their comeback with a fun trailer for 'Maxident'. While fans were not sure if they could top their previous one 'Maniac', the boy group surprised everyone. Shot in USA while on their world tour, Stray Kids are seen enjoying their different concert stops in the 'Maxident' trailer surrounded by a calm instrumental. Dressed in black leather and dark makeup, they channel their inner bad boys which is a stark contrast to the piano melody.
We finally get the plot twist as the music changes to a heavy EDM beat as they mess around a convenience store and play around in the streets. At the end of the trailer, they get a phone call from someone trying to send a code before giant hearts fall from the sky.
