For the past couple of weeks, Machine Gun Kelly has been teasing a “first-of-its-kind” musical adaptation of his latest album Tickets To My Downfall.
The 50 minute film has been released today, narrated by Machine Gun Kelly and close collaborator, blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. It was filmed with some assistance from MOD SUN and stars TikTok star Chase Hudson and Euphoria actress Sydney Sweeney as a couple navigating high school. The musical also features his album collaborators Trippie Redd, Halsey, Blackbear and Iann Dior.
“It was almost like shooting 14 music videos back-to-back, but with a narrative that’s outside of my personal life stories,” MGK previously revealed to NME, revealing that it was shot in just 4 days. “It focuses on other characters, and then me and [Travis] 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.”
After initially debuting on Facebook, the film can now be watched via YouTube below.
