Watch The Trailer For MGK’s Tickets To My Downfall Musical, Downfalls High
As well as revealing that he plans to release another album in 2021, we can now also expect Machine Gun Kelly’s upcoming musical adaptation of his 4K-rated pop-punk album Tickets To My Downfall to arrive next year, too.
Sharing a 15-second teaser trailer of the “pop-punk Grease”, MGK announce overnight that the movie will be titled Downfalls High, and is due out in January 2021.
Speaking to NME about Downfalls High, Machine Gun Kelly revealed he shot the Tickets To My Downfall musical in four days with collaborator Mod Sun, while also wearing the hat of ‘director’ for the first time ever.
“It was almost like shooting 14 music videos back-to-back, but with a narrative that’s outside of my personal life stories,” he said. “It focuses on other characters, and then me and [Travis Barker] are just the narrators. It’s an interesting concept because it hasn’t been done for an album ever, maybe outside of like Pink Floyd’s The Wall.”
Last week, MGK spoke of his grand plans for next year: “Definitely directing a movie, releasing another album, performing Tickets To My Downfall live – that’s necessary. And being a good human, those are all my 2021 top of the list.”
Hell yeah. Watch the trailer for Downfalls High below – and stay tuned for more…
