Love is no “MAXIDENT” in the trailer for Stray Kids’ latest comeback.
On September 5, the JYP Entertainment YouTube channel uploaded the trailer for MAXIDENT, the upcoming seventh mini-album from the eight-member boy group. The trailer features the individual members running around a city causing mayhem and looking angsty as hell. When the guys meet up, the hooliganism is dialed up to MAX whether Stray Kids are running amok through the night or partying in an apartment.
MAXIDENT‘s trailer ends with member Hyunjin receiving an ominous phone call from an unidentified female voice, broken up by static, saying, “Hello, Stray Kids. This is-I wanna send my code to you. Eight letters is all it takes.” This is immediately followed by a bunch of felting art hearts crashing onto their rooftop hangout in a puff of rainbow powder. The largest one winks at the camera before the release date and Stray Kids’ tagline (“Stray kids all around the world, you make Stray Kids stay”) close things out.
This album only marks their most recent 2022 comeback, as they released the mixtape ODDINARY on March 18. They also dropped the Japanese EP Circus on June 22, just two days after closing out the United States leg of their Maniac World Tour.
MAXIDENT will be available on all streaming services and wherever K-pop albums are sold on October 7. When you pre-save the album on Spotify or Apple Music, you unlock a special 23-second video message from the group. Information on how you can pre-order physical copies of the album can be found here.
