K-pop boy band SuperM are back with new music.

The group once dubbed "The Avengers of K-pop" held their SuperM – Beyond the Future concert on the V Live app on Sunday, April 26. The event allowed for their fans around the world to stream their virtual gig as the band performed in a concert hall.

SuperM performed their yet-to-be-released track Tiger Inside for the first time and also revealed that they "will be returning with a new album soon". While they didn't unveil a date just yet, they did, however, share a highlight medley of the upcoming album at the concert.

The K-pop band was created in 2019 and comprised of seven members from four other popular existing SM Entertainment bands: Taemin from Shinee, Baekhyun and Kai from Exo, Taeyong and Mark from NCT 127 and Ten and Lucas from WayV.

The group released their self-titled EP on October 4, 2019 which debuted at number one at the Billboard 200 albums chart. They also released a music video for their lead single Jopping which was filmed in Dubai. The word is a portmanteau of "jumping" and "popping", which the seven-member band claim is "how they get down".

The video shows band members riding motorbikes around Happiness Street in Business Bay and Al Khail Road, driving down Meydan Bridge, and performing on a stretch of highway in the desert. One of the members, Taemin, sings and dances to his verse in a vast desert expanse, with the Dubai skyline in the background.

There are also scenes of the band performing their energetic choreography in a futuristic stadium, and an array of jump-cuts featuring robots assembling a structure, helicopters flying over empty highways and a tank running across the dunes.
