More on Machine Gun Kelly

A few days ago we got our first look at the album’s artwork, and it was a bit of a throwback.

MGK posted the new art, which features a young Kells flipped upside down with his head open. In the background, several lines are handwritten.
With it came a simple reminder of when the record drops, “July 5th.”

The right side of the image appears to reference “53666,” which matches a previously teased track where MGK sings the same line.

The chosen image should come as no surprise to those who have caught his current Hotel Diablo tour run. The same photo has been used heavily in his tour production, including his entrance, which you can see below from opening night at the Fillmore in Detroit.

Written by Whitney Shoemaker

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
