BTS announces their next studio album release date during Las Vegas concert series

On April 17, the global superstars confirmed that they will be releasing a new album, titled We Are Bulletproof, on June 10. It will be the first taste of new music from the group consisting of members RM, Jin, Suga, J-hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook – in 11 months since the release of their smooth singles Butter and Permission to Dance. "Hello. This is BIGHIT MUSIC. BTS will be back with another new album on June 10, 2022," the band's management shared in a statement on the fan community platform. "Details on the new album will be provided in a separate notice at a later date. We look forward to your love and support for BTS' new album. Thank you." The new album announcement comes just hours after a mysterious teaser trailer played during the final night of the group's Permission to Dance on Stage concert series in Las Vegas on April 16. The clip, which featured scenes from BTS music videos from throughout their career, ended with a black screen that read, We Are Bulletproof. It then revealed the date.
