“Epik High is working on a new album,” Tablo wrote in English at the time, alongside a Korean translation. “[Talk to you soon].”
Tablo’s announcement comes a little under a year since the trio dropped their last record, the 12-track studio album ‘Epik High Is Here 下, Part 2’ in February 2022. It was led by title track ‘Gray So Gray’, which reunited them with Younha, and included two singles initially released in 2021: ‘Face ID’ and ‘Rain Song’.
In a five-star review of the album, NME’s Rhian Daly wrote at the tim: “A light in the darkness and a beautifully encouraging portrait of the very essence of life, it’s an album that should be remembered for a long time to come.”
In the meantime, Epik High’s upcoming UK, Europe and North American ‘All Time High’ tour will kick off in Manchester on February 6, followed by several concerts elsewhere in the UK and Europe Late February will take the band across the US and Canada.
