Machine Gun Kelly has been spoiling fans over the past few weeks. Last week, he released both “concert for aliens” and “my ex’s best friend.” The latter song features blackbear who MGK has collaborated with numerous times over the years.
Machine Gun Kelly first teased “concert for aliens” during his recent Good Morning America performance. Alongside Travis Barker, the duo performed a clip of the song on the morning television show. As the first piece of new music since MGK’s lead single “bloody valentine,” fans were on the edge of their seats waiting for the full “concert for aliens” to be released.
On Aug. 5, MGK finally shared “concert for aliens” and revealed that a music video for the song is on its way. He tweeted that the new video is one of his favorites and is also directed by close friend and collaborator Mod Sun. He also hinted that an “emo Kells” is featured in the video.

Then, on Aug. 12, MGK released a teaser for the highly-awaited “concert for aliens” video. In the clip, fans got a chaotic glimpse of what to expect in the new video including clowns and, of course, plenty of aliens.

Now, Machine Gun Kelly has finally released the video for “concert for aliens.” In the video, MGK takes on a number of personas. He first appears as a charismatic yet corrupt talk show host presenting to an audience full of aliens. He also portrays the host’s alter ego who teams up with a clown by the end of the video.
As promised, emo Machine Gun Kelly makes his debut onscreen. The iconic side-swept black hair, lip ring and black skinny jeans are reminiscent of our own middle school days. Of course, MGK is joined by Barker who produced his forthcoming album Tickets To My Downfall. The blink-182 drummer can be seen rocking out throughout the entire video.
Tickets To My Downfall arrives Sept. 25 and pre-orders are available here.
