How you like that? BLACKPINK announced on Saturday (Sept. 26) that they'll be doing a livestream event ahead of the release of their debut full-length studio album, The Album.

The quartet made the announcement with a poster shared on social media. Simply titled "Comeback Live," the streaming event will take place Oct. 1 at 9 p.m. ET on VLive, a South Korean live video streaming service. The highly anticipated The Album is set to drop three hours later, at 12 a.m. Oct. 2.

After sharing the news of the livestream event, the group gave Blinks "concept teaser videos" of Lisa, Rose, Jennie and Jisoo on social media to hype The Album. Each of the girls are featured in their own clips, walking through what appears to be an empty parking structure, with no dialogue and the same brief clip of music at the end.

BLACKPINK has had a busy year so far. In addition to setting historic milestones, the K-pop supergroup collaborated with Lady Gaga on the superstar's "Sour Candy" from her latest album, and teamed up with Selena Gomez for The Album's second single, "Ice Cream," which debuted at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100. On top of all that, Netflix has announced that a documentary about the South Korean group titled BLACKPINK: Light Up the Sky is dropping Oct. 14.
