In March 2012 the finalthe composition of the group and all the participants of the ECHO are represented, the official date of the boyz-bend debut is considered to be the beginning of April 2012. However, the audience's familiarity with the new group began immediately after the announcement of the creation.

In addition, a special show was filmed with the band members, where they performed several songs, told about themselves and answered questions from numerous fans.
