This makes EXO a quintuple-million seller, as all five of the LPs the band has released since its debut have hit the milestone of a million albums sold.

“Don’t Mess Up My Tempo” marks a much-anticipated return to the music stage by the band after a long hiatus.

EXO is set to appear on KBS2TV’s “Music Bank” on Nov. 2 to promote the new LP, followed by a showcase event on the same day at 8 p.m. at the plaza in Paradise City in Incheon.

“Don’t Mess Up My Tempo” will be released via local digital music streaming sites on Nov. 2 at 6 p.m.
