Xdinary Heroes 'Happy Death Day': Release date, concept and all about JYPE band's debut album
The rock band from JYP Entertainment will make their K-pop debut before the end of 2021
As the fight to stay on top continues, many labels have started launching newer K-pop groups to take the baton from older groups and share the burden of carrying the K-pop industry as Korean culture reaches a peak. Being a rather underdog concept, K-pop agencies are now also trying to work with the idea of an actual K-pop rock band where artists make the use of instruments on stage and perform for fans.
A few of the active boybands at present are F.T. Island, N.Flying, Day6, The Rose, Royal Pirate, and CNBLUE among others. Among the few listed, Day6 is one of the most popular boy bands currently and is managed by JYP Entertainment. The label is now trying to popularize the concept of music bands with their new six-member rock band Xdinary Heroes, which will make its debut in December of 2021.
On November 8, JYPE posted the logo of the group as well as revealed their name. It was later revealed that the name Xdinary Heroes is an abbreviation of ‘Extra Ordinary Heroes’, which reiterates the fact that the members of this group are just ordinary people leading fans to believe that ‘anyone can become a hero.’ After the six members were revealed, it was announced that Xdinary Heroes will make their debut with a single album titled ‘Happy Death Day’.
The debut single album from Xdinary Heroes titled ‘Happy Death Day’ will be released on December 6 at 6 pm KST (4 am ET).
How to listen
The single album ‘Happy Death Day’ from Xdinary Heroes will be released on all major music streaming platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, MelOn, and others.
The first single with which the rock band Xdinary Heroes is going to charm fans with is titled ‘Happy Death Day’, and the title of the song itself stimulates curiosity about the actual story these boys are trying to present. The individual teasers released to reveal each of the members generated a sort of curiosity amongst fans it showed each of the six members as outcasts in one way or another who found a way to make their unimportant voices heard through the use of their instruments.
Each member had a story associated with the instruments they will be playing for the group; while one thing that still is a mystery will be which members will be in charge of the vocals for the group. As it is a well-known fact, all JYP vocalists are extremely talented and Xdinary Heroes have raised expectations from fans in terms of what kind of musical texture their debut single will have and about the message they will deliver.
Xdinary Heroes is a group consisting of a total of 6 members, including bassist Jooyeon, keyboardists O.de and Jungsu, guitarists Gaon and Jun Han, and drummer Gun-il. The band will be JYPE’s second rock band to be launched after about 6 years and 3 months since their last rock band Day6.
Xdinary Heroes will release the music video for their single, ‘Happy Death Day’ on December 6 at 6 pm KST (4 am ET) alongside their debut single album of the same name.
