Machine Gun Kelly To Star In Horror Musical Podcast, Halloween In Hell
Despite all the bizarreness of 2020, it feels like no time at all now until Halloween arrives – and clearly Machine Gun Kelly feels the same way, having just announced his involvement in a first-of-its-kind new horror musical podcast.
Halloween In Hell is a four-part holidays series in which MGK teams up with Dana Dentata, iann dior, and 24kGoldn for Audio Up’s “new take and homage to music horror hits like The Rocky Horror Picture Show meets the dark comedy of The Nightmare Before Christmas”.
“Halloween, much like other major holidays, deserves its own entertainment tent pole,” explains Audio Up CEO Jared Gutstadt. “While a lot of people focus on Christmas, Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve, we really believe that Halloween is an undersurface time of year for folks to enjoy original content.
“I was always a fan of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Nightmare Before Christmas, and we believe we’re creating an evergreen franchise that will allow us to unlock new stories every year with original music, possibly ending up in the realm of live or visual content. Machine Gun Kelly was an extremely logical and obvious partner for us. His brand pairs well with the season.”
Halloween In Hell will premiere on October 10 via all podcast platforms, with a making-of documentary and a soundtrack also on the way.
Machine Gun Kelly’s new pop-punk album Tickets To My Downfall is due out on September 25 (pre-order it here).
MGK says he and YUNGBLUD “can make some sort of union of rock stars” on their respective sides of the pond.
