Kep1er will drop its first full-length album “Kep1going” on May 8 in Japan, the girl group’s agency, Wakeone and Swing Entertainment, said Wednesday.

The title of the album, “Kep1going” means that the girl group and its fandom, Kep1ian, will continue to pursue its dream together, according to the agency.

“We are nervous yet excited as we are currently working hard in preparation [for the album’s release], so we can make people happy with our songs and our performances,” Kep1er said in a press release Wednesday.

The lead track of the album will be “Straight Line.”

The regular and Type A albums will feature a total of 15 tracks, including “Straight Line” and four brand-new Japanese tracks while the Type B album will feature a total of 18 tracks.

More information about the album will be released at a future date.

Nine-member girl group Kep1er was formed in October 2021 through cable network Mnet’s multinational idol audition show “Girls Planet 999.” The group debuted the following year with its first EP “First Impact.”

Kep1er dropped a total of five EPs in Korea. Its latest Korean EP, “Magic Hour,” was released in September last year with its lead track “Galileo.” The group also released three Japanese singles: “Fly-Up” (2022), “Fly-By” (2023) and “Fly-High” (2023).

Kep1er will hold its first Japanese fan concert “Fly-High” in Chiba, near Tokyo, on Feb. 23 to 24, followed by performances in Kobe on March 2 and 3.
