Plus, news on some forthcoming collabs with Yungblud and Bert McCracken.
We chat via Zoom with Machine Gun Kelly ahead of the release of his new pop punk influenced album 'Tickets To My Downfall' which includes the huge singles 'Bloody Valentine', 'Concert For Aliens' and 'My Ex's Best Friend' featuring blackbear. We talk working with the album's producer, Blink-182's Travis Barker, on honing the sound of the record, the writing process behind those singles and coming up with the final album title after a conversation with a friend.
He also tells us about the collaborations he has recorded for later this year including three new songs with Yungblud, one of which also features The Used frontman Bert McCracken. We also look ahead to potential future live shows and chat through his lockdown sessions he has been putting out over the last few months, including 'In These Walls' which sampled Lynn Gunn's vocals from the PVRIS song 'My House'.
