South Korean boy band 2PM will embark on a world tour concert series in major cities, its label JYP Entertainment announced Monday.

The sextet is to kick off “2PM World Tour,” with the first concert to be held in Seoul from Oct. 3-4 shortly after its new album release.

Following the two-day concert, 2PM will tour around several countries including Thailand, China, the U.S. and Indonesia to perform.

2PM is to return to the K-pop scene in September, with its fourth studio album and EP in Korea and Japan, respectively.

The soon-to-be-released albums will include different songs apart from the title track.

The upcoming album is attracting a bigger spotlight than ever as its title song was written by 2PM member Jun.K. It would mark the first time for the group to use a self-composed tune.
