Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker are the 2 evil geniuses behind the latest resurgence of pop-punk that has taken over each side of our lives, and it seems like they’re on the brink of be part of forces as soon as once more.
The 2 collaborated on “Tickets to My Downfall,” the album utterly remade who Kelly is as an artist. Whereas rock had all the time been part of what Kelly did on his first 4 studio albums, “Tickets to My Downfall” turned him from a rapper with some rock influences right into a pop-punk celebrity.
When the album was launched again in January 2020, Kelly visited tattoo artist Chuey Quintanar to get a killer script tattoo to mark the event. Now, we’re not saying that Kelly is a superstitious man, however given the large success of the album he might as effectively go together with what labored the primary time, proper?
As any profitable performer will let you know, if you are going to repeat what labored earlier than you might want to up the stakes, or else folks will develop uninterested in you. So this time there wasn’t only one tattoo, there was a pair of them as Barker joined in on the enjoyable.
We do not know who did the tattoo simply but as neither musician credited their artist within the pictures—CREDIT YOUR ARTIST, PEOPLE!—or when the album will drop, however we all know the title, and that is one thing. The upcoming album goes to be referred to as “Born With Horns” in accordance with the tattoos.
Now, I do not need to sound like a conspiracy theorist studying an excessive amount of into issues, however I’ve a idea about what precisely “Born With Horns” goes to sound like—it’ll be a ska album. Hear me out.
1. Whereas one might assume that “Born With Horns” is a reference to being a satan, which is sensible as a result of devils are cool, I believe it is a reference to the best musical style of all.
2. The final time Kelly bought a tattoo for an album he utterly remade his sound.
4. Travis Barker comes from a ska background. Most of the youngs solely know Barker from his time with Blink-182 and the numerous, many aspect tasks he is had during the last decade or so. However as soon as upon a time he was generally known as Baron Von Tito as drummer for a gaggle of superheroes known as The Aquabats.
It is simple that “Born With Horns” goes to be a ska album. And when it lastly comes out you’ll be able to assure thousands and thousands of youngsters across the nation are going to choose it up decide it up decide it up.
Or, they’re just a few cool tattoos, I am a tinfoil-hat carrying ska evangelist and this has nothing to do with ska. Solely time will inform.
