You can watch the new teaser trailer below.
Machine Gun Kelly revealed to NME that Downfalls High is essentially “pop-punk Grease” and was filmed in just four days. It was inspired by a running joke between him and MOD SUN, with the pair using the excuse of needing to watch Grease 2 as an escape from certain situations.
“Maybe that joke sparked the whole idea, because now we’re making a new pop-punk Grease,” he said. “It was almost like shooting 14 music videos back-to-back, but with a narrative that’s outside of my personal life stories.”
Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker are also narrating the musical.
“It focuses on other characters,” he said. “And then me and [Barker] 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.”
