Block B’s fandom, called Bees, have another reason to check in on the boy band’s buzz. On Wednesday (Oct. 18 in Korean time), the septet announced they’ll return on Nov. 7 with their sixth mini-album following the April 2016 release of Blooming Period, which peaked at No. 4 on World Albums.

The group is known for drastically changing their concepts with each new comeback -- they’ve gone in a softer direction since the sentimental “Toy” followed up the in-your-face “H.E.R” in April 2016.

Not many details have been released yet, and there isn’t much conceptual speculation to glean from the sanguine announcement image. But it’s safe to say that fans should expect the unexpected.

The group last released single “Yesterday,” written and composed by member Park Kyung, in February. It achieved “all-kill” status, meaning it hit No. 1 on eight real-time Korean charts.

In the group’s free time between comebacks, P.O made his solo debut in September with his funky “MEN’z NIGHT” single.

Leader Zico -- who happens to be successful as a solo rapper -- released five singles this year alone. He returned as part of producer team FANXYCHILD with close friend Dean on the Korean survival program Show Me the Money 6 -- their team member Hangzoo ended up winning the top spot in the rap competition.
