P.O, U-Kwon, and B-Bomb confirmed their return as a sub-unit through the release of a group teaser on March 20 where they sported matching checkered suits.

The thirst is real for fans of the sub-unit who have waited 29 months to see the trio back together for a new release.
Although fans witnessed the boys perform at the Korea Times Music Festival in 2017 and Two Yoo Project Sugar Man in 2018, their last EP was in 2016 with Welcome 2 BASTARZ, their second mini album which comprised five songs fronted by “Make It Rain”.
