Despite the recent tragedy that Japan is currently dealing with, Cube Entertainment confirms that they will continue with the sales of BEAST’s debut album on the 16th of March. As reported yesterday, the agency also announced that all performances of the group in Japan will be canceled.
According to Cube Entertainment, they decided to continue with the release of BEAST’s first album on the 16th of March because of the fans’ pre-order status since the 11th. Despite pushing through the group’s album release as planned, it has also been confirmed that Universal Japan has canceled all promotional schedules over the weekend.
A representative of the company further states that: “The official Japanese album will be released to the public a few days earlier because BEAST had already been raised in anticipation to the public since the 11th, so the dates of the release of the albums will not be messed with. But right now, the most important thing in the recovery from the earthquake, so all the performances are on a canceled status.”
