Machine Gun Kelly gave fans a special treat in the way of a new song he and his friends performed last night.
The rapper took to social media to play a handful of tracks along with the new one for fans to check out while people are stuck at home.
He and his bandmates swapped instruments and played a handful of tracks on Instagram live last night.
Machine Gun Kelly has been busy plugging away at his upcoming Travis Barker produced pop-punk album for quite a while now.
Later on, he corrected himself calling it a pop-punk record and ended up confirming the album title.

Barker also later elaborated on the origin of the album title in an interview with Zane Lowe.
MGK and Barker previously worked together alongside YUNGBLUD on Hotel Diablo track “I Think I’m OKAY.” Embracing that relationship all over again, MGK revealed the vocalist is returning for this album. Earlier this month, the three also linked up to put together a “sad” version of the track.

Kelly also revealed other previous collaborators blackbear, Trippie Redd and Young Thug will be joining him on the new project. He also said his wish list of collabs includes Attila frontman Chris Fronzak and the Used vocalist Bert McCracken. Machine Gun Kelly got one of those wishes granted in the form of McCracken.

Initially, MGK gave a timeline for fans wondering when it would arrive saying it would hit in early 2020 between January and March. That obviously changed over time though.
In a story posted to his Instagram, Machine Gun Kelly shows that we can expect Tickets To My Downfall this summer. The video shows MGK’s hand showing off his trippy fingernails with text spread out saying, “Tickets To My Downfall This Summer.” Check it out below.
More recently, he’s been playing riffs from various bands while staying inside during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. Since the pandemic became a hot topic across the world this month, he’s been staying very busy.
Then, he joined YUNGBLUD‘s “Shit’s Weird Keep Calm and Carry On” show along with Bella Thorne and Oliver Tree. The livestream show was a way for YUNGBLUD to connect with fans following concert cancellations and events and travel bans due to the virus. So far, YUNGBLUD has had to cancel shows in ten different countries.
The livestream saw YUNGBLUD perform a set and do a Q&A segment after Tree gave a brief cooking lesson and MGK and Thorne played a drinking game.
Now, fans are getting a glimpse of a new track from Machine Gun Kelly. He and his bandmates hit up Instagram live to give fans something to check out while everyone is self-isolating. You can check out the clip below.
