Pop-punk superstar Machine Gun Kelly has released his highly anticipated sixth studio album, mainstream sellout (Bad Boy/Interscope Records).
mainstream sellout, executive produced by Travis Barker, caps a massive few months for the rock dynamo that included multiple hit singles and landing the cover on this week’s issue of Billboard, who hailed him as “Pop-Punk’s Crown Prince.” The magazine also shot a revealing 10-minute behind-the-scenes video interview with the hitmaker, in which he discloses personal insights and shares the inspiration behind his new music. An exclusive CD version of mainstream sellout is available only at Target and features an alternative album cover and an extra track.
mainstream sellout boasts features from hitmakers including Gunna, Young Thug, blackbear, and iann dior. Plus, fans have already fallen in love with the album’s monster collaborations: “emo girl,” with WILLOW, which has shot to 50 million streams worldwide, “ay!,” alongside Lil Wayne, and “maybe,” with rock innovators Bring Me the Horizon. The release also launches with 14 brand-new lyric videos for the album’s tracks, all directed by Kyle Cogan at Simian.LA working alongside muralist Roshi.
Earlier this month, MGK announced his international ‘Mainstream Sellout’ Tour – a colossal 52 arena run across North America and Europe featuring an incredible roster of special guests including Avril Lavigne, Travis Barker, blackbear, Trippie Redd, WILLOW, iann dior, PVRIS, and 44 phantom on select dates.
The multi-platinum selling artist’s first ever arena tour will also feature a special hometown stadium performance in Cleveland, OH at FirstEnergy Stadium, the largest venue in the city.
