Hip-hop trio Epik High has signed an exclusive contract with one of the biggest entertainment agencies in the United States, William Morris Endeavor (WME), signaling that they are ready for more action abroad.

“WME will be in charge of all of Epik High’s overseas activities from now on,” the trio said in a release.

WME, which represents the world’s biggest pop stars, such as Adele, Alicia Keys, Bruno Mars, Drake, Rihanna, Sam Smith and Childish Gambino, will be supporting the group’s future steps around the world. The agency currently houses Korean directors Park Chan-wook and Bong Joon-ho, and actors Bae Doo-na and Lee Ha-nee.

Epik High will release their latest album “Sleepless in __________” in March and kick off their world tour.

The tour will take the group to seven countries in Europe and 17 cities throughout North America beginning in April.
