They started their “X4 LIVE TOUR 2015 ~Killing Me~” on October 21st, touring 15 locations around Japan. Their greatly successful tour final was at Shinagawa Stellar Ball, their biggest venue yet.
Following their “consecutive release” announcement in January 2016, they digitally released “obsession” in January, and “IDKYN (I don’t know your name)” in February, both hitting number one in the iTunes R&B charts. In February 2016, they announced the addition of two new members, SHOTA and JUKIYA.
