South Korean record label SM Entertainment's popular boy band EXO officially announced the release date of their first Japanese single.

After their performance at the Japanese music festival, a-nation, held in Tokyo, the nine-member group informed their fans that they will unveil the project on 4 November, according to Allkpop.

The boy band members are all set to rule the stage of Japan with their EXOPLANET #2 - The EXO'luXion concert tour from 6 November. After creating some waves in Tokyo, they will burn the stadiums of Kyocera Dome in Osaka from 13 to 15 November.

During their concert tour, EXO will woo the audience with hit songs such as "Growl", "Call Me Baby" and "Love Me Right" from their popular albums. They made their debut in the Japanese entertainment industry through their television show "EXO Channel" on 7 August.

The South Korean-Chinese music group is currently busy with their concert tour in China. They will conclude it at Chongqing Olympic Sports Center on 12 September. The event is scheduled to kick-off at 8 pm CST.

Meanwhile, a viral post on micro-blogging site Instiz apparently sparked several speculations that EXO members Chanyeol, Chen and Baekhyun will take a break from their activities associated with the boy band.

The online post, titled "Idols that are going to be returning home in March. EXO", features three tickets of the NASA's Journey To Mars mission with the names of boy band members on it.

The post received more than 70,000 views in just a few hours and some of the social media users believed that the Kpopstars are heading off to mars. 

However, the tickets gifted by EXO fans are the online version of microchips that will be sent to Mars with the names of Chanyeol, Chen and Baekhyun implanted on it, according to Koreaboo.
