Billboard states, “‘THE WORLD EP.FIN : WILL’ captures the K-pop group’s ability to never let its audience’s attention flag for even a few seconds: every inch of the album is filled with percussive breakdowns, rap verses springing into melodic hooks and cleanly delivered interplay between the various group members.”
V Magazine says, “The project cements the K-Pop group’s status as an international force, expanding their discography’s sounds and genres. On 12 incredible tracks, all members of the group’s musical talents soar to new heights.”
The music video for “Crazy Form,” the title track off the album, takes on a dancehall genre infused with an Afrobeat rhythm that shines a light on a new style for ATEEZ. Exuding a unique wit and irreplaceable charm representative of the group, it presents the beginning of a new musical chapter for them that draws the perfect synergy between an addictive melody and powerful choreography. While also setting a new record with having the most views in the first 24 hours by a 4th generation boy group finishing the day with 19.2 million views.
With the wrap of their successful ATEEZ WORLD TOUR THE FELLOWSHIP : BREAK THE WALL, selling out shows in multiple continents including North America, Europe, Latin America, and Asia, the group is set to start their new musical chapter with their newly announced 2024 ATEEZ WORLD TOUR, TOWARDS THE LIGHT : WILL TO POWER.

ATEEZ, short for ‘A TEEnager Z’, is an eight-member South Korean group that has taken the world by storm immediately after their debut in October 2018. Known for standout performances that combine runway aesthetics with darker tones lined by hip-hop and electronic trap mixes, the octet have turned storytelling into a full musical experience. The eight members of ATEEZ are HONGJOONG, SEONGHWA, YUNHO, YEOSANG, SAN, MINGI, WOOYOUNG, and JONGHO. Though the initial meaning of their group name stood for ‘everything teenagers need from A to Z’, they have since evolved and grown as artists alongside their fans (named ATINY) to become ‘everything you need from A to Z’. Establishing themselves as top artists early on in their career with a sold-out global tour only four months after their debut, they continue to break their own records. In a unique narrative that starts from the very first release in the TREASURE album series and continues through the FEVER and THEWORLD masterpieces, the group combines bestseller narratives with personalized music that speaks to their generation. ATEEZ attained the label of being a ‘million seller’ group with their 8th EP release of THE WORLD EP.1 : MOVEMENT, among other achievements of being nominated and winning titles throughout the years as the ‘Next Generation Act’ and ‘Top Act’ in award ceremonies. Their most recent release THE WORLD EP.2 : OUTLAW broke their highest personal record on the Billboard 200 Chart, debuting at 2nd and charting for five weeks.
