NCT 127 are dropping their upcoming NeoZone album in March, and will be fronted by the newly-announced single "KickIt," according to a tweet from the act.   

Set to arrive on March 6, the K-pop boy band teased the release today through a retro-inspired video shared on social media that features clips of older NCT 127 music videos and performances, leading up to the NeoZone logo, which looks like it's straight out of the '80s. The video also notably begins with a snippet of NCT U’s “The 7th Sense,” one of the first-ever songs released under the NCT boy band umbrella back in 2016, in which several NCT 127 members appear.

"KickIt," which is stylized in the tweet without a space, appears to be known as “??” (yeongwoong), or "Hero," in Korean.

NeoZone is NCT 127’s second LP. It follows the release of last year’s We Are Superhuman, which peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard 200 chart in June. The album’s relese precedes their upcoming performance at the Houston Rodeo on March 10.    

The act most recently released their song “Dreams Come True” to commemorate NCT 127 Day on Jan. 27.
