Korean Rock Band, DAY6’s 3rd Full Length Album <The Book of Us : Entropy>, is set to be sold for the first time ever abroad, and will be available on Amazon.com for fans everywhere. Starting mid-December, global fans will be able to purchase the physical album directly online, rather than through 2nd party sellers/retail shops as they have previously. For fans specifically in the U.S, the album will be available on Barnes and Noble (.com), for the UK it’ll be available through HMV, and lastly for France it’ll be available for purchase at FNAC.
After coming off their wildly successful North American leg of tour, the release of this album continued to build their presence here in the U.S. with appearances on Alternative Press, Seventeen, Zach Sang Show, Access Hollywood, Allure, Orange County Register, Good Day NY, and many more.
|<The Book of Us : Entropy> contains 11 tracks, all of which were written and/or produced members Young K (Vocalist and Bassist), Jae (Vocalist and Guitarist), WONPIL (Vocalist and Keyboardist), and SUNGJIN (Vocalist and Guitarist). Young K specifically wrote the lyrics to 8 of the 11 tracks, recently expressing to Alternative Press one of his favorite moments while touring, stating “what thrills me is when everyone is singing along together to the songs that we wrote [and] worked hard on. Everyone’s singing along and singing their hearts out while we are too.”|
DAY6 continue their own discourse with this new album, focusing on the relationships between human beings. Previous work described mutual attraction and excitement, as natures Gravity. For this album, “Entropy” is functioned as a scientific metaphor of the changing of someone in love. Title track, “Sweet Chaos,” is the fastest BPM song ever recorded by DAY6, with DOWOON on the drums, was composed by Jae, SUNGJIN, WONPIL, and Young K wrote the lyrics. “Sweet Chaos” is showcasing this overall theme by comparing love to the laws of thermodynamics; where the more heat energy you put on, the more disorder you get [=Entropy]. “Our video for “Sweet Chaos” represents the sweet as well as the chaotic sides of love. Going from black and white to color showing a transition of emotion” the band further explains.
The band just finished performing in Australia, Manila and Jakarta, and are currently in the midst of finishing up their 6-month long tour. The ‘GRAVITY’ World Tour will wrap up with its European leg through January 2020.

|MORE INFO: Debuting in 2015, DAY6 is a five-member Band from JYP Entertainment, consisting of SUNGJIN (Main Vocalist and Rhythm Guitarist), Jae (Vocalist and Lead Guitarist), Young K (Vocalist and Bassist), WONPIL (Vocalist and Keyboardist), and DOWOON (Drummer). DAY6 are shattering the boundaries of a stereotypical K-Pop group, with their heartfelt anthems and instrumental expertise. After their sold-out Youth World Tour in 2018, OC Weekly highlighted their last U.S. date stating “The Novo in Los Angeles is somewhat of a rite of passage for many up-and-coming South Korean acts. It marks the point in their Stateside popularity where they have a solid enough following to show up for them and signals a bright future.”|
Named by Alternative Press as one of the ‘10 Bands For K-Pop Fans Looking For Something Different’ the publication hailed the bands success, stating “With a sound that blends elements of soft-rock ballads and pop-punk anthems, the band have earned their spot in becoming one of the more popular groups in the Korean rock scene.”
DAY6 showcase a diverse spectrum of music through their unique set up of four vocalists. They have broadened their musical spectrum by cleverly utilizing their vocals to cover emotional music through powerful rock music. Their debut album, The Day, reached Korean Top Five and even more, peaked at #2 on the Billboard World Albums chart. DAY6 chose to promote their music directly to the listeners by throwing gigs, rather than appearing on music and variety shows in Korea. The band is also always maturing musically, along with their audience, as the members write their own songs.
