Machine Gun Kelly has confirmed that he’ll be releasing two albums in 2022. MGK announced the upcoming release of the Travis Barker-produced Born With Horns this past August, and provided the first taste of the album shortly after with the single “Papercuts.”
MGK teased that he would be releasing new music in the early days of 2022. “The second you open your eyes and it’s 2022, you’ll have something to listen to,” he said.
However, on December 31, he rescinded that release date in a tweet. “I know the rumor was I was dropping New Year’s Eve but… see you in 2022,” he wrote. Then, on January 2, he followed the matter up by tweeting, “Two albums this year.”
Whenever the first of the two LPs drops, it’ll serve as a follow-up to 2020’s Tickets to My Downfall, Kelly’s first collaboration with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, which debuted at No.1 on the Billboard 200 upon its release, and spawned singles “Bloody Valentine,” “Concert for Aliens” and the Blackbear-assisted “My Ex’s Best Friend.”
As 2021 drew to a close, MGK announced the cast for his upcoming musical film Taurus, including girlfriend Megan Fox, Naomi Wild, Lil Tjay, and more.
Back in November, MGK worked closely with Schecter designers to create the custom signature MGK Tickets To My Downfall pink guitar which is now available for fans and musicians alike.
This ax features an alder body and a Canadian rock maple bolt-on neck that has carbon fiber reinforcement rods for extra stability and has been shaped to a thin “C” profile for high velocity soloing and comfort. The neck joint construction allows easy access to the upper frets and the 14” radius ebony fingerboard provides all the warmth, sustain, and effortless playability you could ever want.
The “Machine Gun Kelly signature PT” also features an overwound Schecter Pasadena Plus pickup in the bridge position which delivers a modern tone that has an aggressive, balanced punch when driven, but also clear and mellow mids and highs, allowing for many options that range from thick and crunchy to jangly and bright, and the simplified controls feature a volume control and a kill switch, delivering complete control of your sound right to your fingertips.
