MACHINE GUN KELLY REVEALS POP-PUNK ALBUM TITLE, ‘TICKETS TO MY DOWNFALL’

Machine Gun Kelly has been teasing hints of a Travis Barker-produced pop-punk album over the past few weeks. Now, the musician has finally revealed its name. 

“the untitled pop punk album has a name,” he wrote on Instagram. “#TicketsToMyDownfall.”

Last month, the rapper announced plans to release a rock album in 2020. Not long after revealing his plans on Twitter, he clarified himself by noting his follow-up to 2019’s Hotel Diablo LP would be better classified as a pop-punk.

“I’d like to reword what I said last week to this: pop-punk album 2020,” he wrote.

Prior to the name reveal, MGK has been posting studio clips over the past few weeks. Featuring Barker, Escape The Fate guitarist Kevin “Thrasher” Gruft and more, each post teased “the untitled pop punk album.” 

He previously confirmed with Zane Lowe of Beats 1 in December that the album will have a stacked array of collaborations with plans to drop it in the first quarter of 2020.

No release date has been announced for MGK’s fifth studio album, but he has given fans a preview of the sound they can expect to hear on the project by dropping a single titled “why are you here” showcasing his genre shift.
