Blackpink on Tuesday dropped off an alluring (albeit short) teaser for their upcoming comeback single “Pink Venom.”
The vibrant, pink-tinged visual includes a series of dramatic clips, including close-ups of a kaleidoscopic crystal, curtains blowing in a tantalizing wind and a sword-like edge scraping against a swinging gong. Among a myriad of mysterious shots, the most thrilling provides glimpses at a cult-like group draped in matching black cloaks.
The new track, which will mark the chart-topping group’s first release in almost two years, is scheduled to arrive on August 19 and land on their upcoming sophomore studio album Born Pink. In celebration of their sixth anniversary last week, Blackpink began stirring excitement surrounding the drop with two sets of pre-single posters. Additionally, the girl group announced that their forthcoming full-length effort will be released on September 19. Following the debut, Blackpink will embark on a global tour, which is slated to commence in Seoul on October 15.
The group is also gearing up to make their U.S. award show debut at this year’s VMAs, with a performance of “Pink Venom,” on August 28. Blackpink previously made history at the MTV award show as the first K-pop girl group to win a VMA for their popular track “How You Like That.”
