Day6

DAY6 spent the month of September delivering their high-energy K-pop tracks to fans across North America on the Gravity World Tour. Next month, they'll continue the trek in Australia, the Philippines and Indonesia, and will hit Thailand in December before their European leg kicks off in January.

With such a busy schedule, the DAY6 guys (Dowoon, Jae, Sungjin, Wonpil and Young K) find solace in music -- both their own songs, as well as tunes by some of today's tastemakers in other genres. In celebration of the K-pop rock group's new album, The Book Of Us: Entropy, which just arrived Tuesday (Oct. 22), DAY6 shared a playlist of what they're listening to on the road.

The five-piece group each shared four songs that they love listening to while on tour. Everyone in DAY6 shows their pride for The Book Of Us: Entropy by including at least one track from the album, but they also shout-out artists like Post Malone, Lauv, Quinn XCII, Hans Zimmer and The Script. Sungjin even declares that the Arctic Monkeys' "R U Mine?" makes him "feel confident," the perfect pump-up before hitting the stage.

Check out DAY6's "On the Road" playlist, as well as quotes from each member, below. And if you haven't already, take a listen to The Book Of Us: Entropy here.
