Fresh from its Coachella debut, boy band Ateez will release its 10th EP, “Golden Hour: Part. 1,” on May 31 before embarking on the North American leg of its world tour in July.

The new album marks the band’s first music release in almost six months, following the drop of its second full-length album, “The World EP FIN: Will,” in December last year.

A schedule for Ateez’s promotional activities for “Golden Hour: Part. 1” was uploaded to the band’s social media pages on Tuesday. Promotional content will be released from April 22 leading up to the EP's release on May 31.

In July, Ateez will kick off the North American leg of the “Towards the Light: Will to Power” world tour with a concert in Tacoma, as announced by the band's agency KQ Entertainment in a press release on Tuesday.

The band is set to perform in 10 cities across the continent: Tacoma, Oakland, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Arlington, Duluth, New York, Washington, Toronto and Rosemont.

This marks Ateez's debut performance at Citi Field in New York, following in the footsteps of BTS as the second K-pop act to perform at the venue. The members will also be the first K-pop idols to perform at the Globe Life Field in Arlington, with a capacity of around 40,000, making it the band’s largest venue yet.

The band has also confirmed the starting date of the European leg of its world tour, scheduled for February 2025.

Ateez began its “Towards the Light: Will to Power” world tour with performances in Seoul in January and held two concerts in Japan in February.

A pop-up exhibition at the Grammy Museum showcasing the members’ outfits and props opened on April 10, just ahead of Ateez’s debut performance at the Coachella Festival on April 12 and 19 as the first K-pop boy band to perform at North America’s largest music festival.
