Boy band FT Island will be releasing their seventh EP on Sept. 9, their agency FNC Entertainment said on Monday.

“FT Island will drop their seventh EP ‘Zapping’ on Sept. 9, [it is] their first album in a year and also the last before member Lee Hong-gi starts his military service,” the agency said.

“Zapping” refers to the act of constantly flipping between TV channels, and the band used it as the title of the EP to describe how people want to turn away from their relationships with people when it gets hard, but they eventually come back and fix it to move forward.

“The lead track ‘Quit’ is a rock song that expresses pain in the face of an imminent breakup, highlighted by the lead vocalist Lee Hong-gi’s voice,” FNC said.

Lee will start his military duties on Sept. 30, and his role in the musical “I Loved You” will be filled in by fellow FT Island member Lee Jae-jin.
