Last month, Machine Gun Kelly surprise-released a new song, love race. Like last year’s Tickets To My Downfall album, it mainlined 2001-era pop-punk and had blink-182’s Travis Barker on drums. It also featured Sleeping With Sirens frontman Kellin Quinn.

Now Kels has dropped the video. Set in an emo summer camp – Emo Pointe – it finds MGK playing a be-braced emo nerd being dropped off by his mother, ready for a summer of outdoor fun and activity. And, as it turns out, a Jason Voorhees-esque maniac who picks off campers and staff – including Kellin as a lifeguard, along with various dead famous influencer types – with the aid of things like alligators and their own dismembered limbs.
