ABTB’s back to take the throne!


ABTB, which plays the sounds piled up on various musical layers on the background of alternative-hard rock, was formed in 2014. ABTB proved themselves on stages such as “Naver Onstage”, “EBS SPACE Gonggam”, “JISAN ROCK FESTIVAL”, and was recognized through ‘Korean Music Awards’. Since the release of their first album in 2016, ABTB has made two singles and participated in two compilation albums. On May 1, 2020, the second album [daydream] was released. After guitarist ‘Hwang Leen’ appearing on the music audition show “Superband 2” and performing with the rising band ‘Kardi’, ABTB is back to take the throne once again with a well-made album!

In the new album [iii], the best rock vocalists in Korea, such as Kim Bada, Lee Yunchan, Cho Kyuhyun (from H a Lot), and Bae Inhyuk (from Romantic Punch), featured and showed a variety and broad range of styles. In particular, the title song ‘Bully’ is an unconventional rap/rock track in which the band’s guitarist ‘Kwak Sang-gyu’ as a frontman shows off his splendid rap skills, and all the vocalists who participated in the album are all joining in the chorus.

Who’s the next generation of Rock?


The next-generation’s rock star, band CHASEDAE (a.k.a The Next Generation) has finally released their new EP [LIE]. CHASEDAE has a huge fan base with unique retro style music, and they are performing actively on various venues to meet their fans. They also built their own venue called ‘Your next generation’ for more shows. The singles in the new EP are actually already well known to the fans since CHASEDAE has performed the unreleased songs on several shows.

It took more than a year for the band to work with those songs into perfection, to pack it in a new EP.

The members explain that the title song ‘LIE’ is their favorite because it warms both performers and listeners’ heart. They want this song, filled with unlimited love, to become a poem for people suffering from anxiety, fear and lonelyness. Anyways, the new release will prove that CHASEDAE is going to conquer the next generation of Rock n’ Roll!


⬇️CHASEDAE’s music is EVEN BETTER on live stages😎🎙️

CHASEDAE has appeared on Mnet’s music audition show ‘Great Seoul Invasion’ and surprised everyone – including the participants, judges and the fans – by voluntarily stepping down. They felt uncomfortable on the competition and the overall format of the TV show. However everyone supported their choice. 👏
