Between playing sold-out arenas and raking up millions of streams online, K-pop group Monsta X are having a big year. Now, the group has officially signed with Epic Records.
Monsta X announced their new partnership with Epic Records this week, revealing that the American record label will be managing the group’s English language recordings and worldwide distribution everywhere but Korea (where they’re part of Starship Entertainment).
“We are thrilled to join the Epic Family alongside some of the artists we admire the most,” Monsta X said in a statement. “This is like a dream come true and we still can’t believe that this is happening to us. We can’t thank our monbebe enough for their endless support and for making everything possible.”
Epic Records chairman and CEO, Sylvia Rhone, also commented on the group’s signing, saying:
“K-pop has indelibly impacted the global conversation and influenced culture everywhere. At the top of that conversation, you’ll find Monsta X. They’re ushering the genre into the future with an original style befitting of their experience, passion, and diverse influences. We’re honored to welcome them to the Epic Records family.”
Monsta X are currently gearing up for their We Are Here world tour, which will kick off in Bangkok on June 1 with stops in cities like Sydney, London, Paris, Los Angeles, New York, and more. You can find out more about their upcoming shows and tickets here.
