On August 11, B.A.P released their fourth Japanese single "Excuse Me". TS Entertainment announced on October 27 that they have cancelled the South American leg of the group's tour to give time off for the members to rest and recharge.
On November 27, 2014, it was reported that the group had filed a lawsuit against their label to nullify their contract due to unfair conditions and profit distribution. The following day, TS Entertainment issued a press release refuting the claims made, stating that “there have been neither such maltreatments to the artists nor unfair clauses in the contract.” However, TS Entertainment's claims were challenged when B.A.P released another statement claiming lack of accountability and the group is considering filing for defamation of character.
