Stray Kids tops Japan’s Oricon Daily Albums chart with ‘The Sound’
Stray Kids topped Japan’s Oricon Daily Albums Chart with the band’s first Japanese full-length album “The Sound” on Feb. 21, according to the agency JYP Entertainment on Thursday.
The album, released Wednesday, features 10 tracks, including the title track of the same name. The band’s producing subunit, 3RACHA, consisting of Stray Kids members Bang Chan, Changbin, and Han, composed and wrote the lyrics for the lead track.
As part of their second world tour, “Maniac World Tour,” Stray Kids will perform at two dome stadiums in Japan: the Saitama Super Arena near Tokyo on Feb. 25 and the Kyocera Dome in Osaka on Feb. 26. This will be the first time for the band to hold concerts at a dome stadium. Performing and selling out at dome stadium concerts is considered a great achievement for artists in Japan, as these stadiums are large and can hold a high number of concertgoers.
According to the agency, tickets for both dome concerts have already sold out.
