Tomorrow X Together shared a preview of the repackaging of their second studio album on Wednesday.

The video clip included samples of three songs from the repackaged album titled “The Chaos Chapter: Fight or Escape” – the title track “LO $ ER = LO ♡ ER”, “Exchange Diary” and “0X1 = LOVESONG (I Know I Love You) feat Seori (Emocore Mix).

The focus track is about a boy who may look like a loser but who hopes to be the lover of someone who matters to him, who saved him. “Exchange Diary” is a song dedicated to his fans, a first for the boy band. The band members wrote the lyrics to the song that would make their fans want to dance with its catchy chorus. Meanwhile, the title song of his second LP takes a darker, rock-leaning turn with rougher guitar sounds.

The second LP, “The Chaos Chapter: Freeze” entered the Billboard 200 as No.5 in June and remains on the charts for nine consecutive weeks, becoming the third K-pop boy group to achieve the feat.

The repackaging will be fully unveiled on August 17.
