Machine Gun Kelly shows off giant skull tattoo and shaved head in new music video, papercuts

Machine Gun Kelly unveils a couple of (fake) bold looks in the video for his brand-new rock single with blink-182’s Travis Barker, papercuts.

After promising that new music would be arriving in August, Machine Gun Kelly has just dropped a brand-new single, papercuts.

The track – which once again finds MGK teaming up with blink-182s Travis Barker – arrives after a couple of collaborative releases in 2021 (with jxdn, Kellin Quinn and CORPSE), and is the musician’s first proper solo single since last year’s Tickets To My Downfall album. It takes a bit of a heavier edge rather than his pop-punk stuff, with guitars reminiscent of Green Days awesome Brain Stew.

Oh yeah, and it has a typically eye-catching video…

Don’t worry, though – Machine Gun Kelly hasn’t properly shaved off his long blond locks; instead, he rocks a bald cap and one hell of a (fake) skull tattoo in the video. 

papercuts is presumably taken from MGK’s upcoming album Born With Horns, which was teased a couple of days ago when he got matching tattoos with Travis.
