Coed rock band Jaurim will release its first album in two years since its self-titled album "JAURIM."
Interpark Entertainment, the band's agency, announced the return on July 3 with the EP "HOLA!" Tuesday, along with a bright pastel-tone teaser image.
"The album consists of summer-themed tracks," the agency added. "The songs are intended to give encouraging messages to each and everyone going through the tough time of COVID-19."
The band will kick off its promotion on KBS's music show "You Hee-yeol's Sketchbook" on the day of the album's release.
The group debuted as a quartet ― vocalist Kim Yoon-ah, bassist Kim Jin-man, guitarist Lee Sun-kyu, and drummer Goo Tae-hoon ― in 1997 with the album "Purple Heart."
The group has been among the pioneers keeping rock music in the limelight and expanding its market.
It has released numerous hit music, including "Deviations" (1997) and "Magic Carpet Ride" (2000). After the drummer dropped out in 2007, the group continued the act with three members.
