Machine Gun Kelly is set to release a new graphic novel which is based on this 2019 record, ‘Hotel Diablo’.
The release will also be called Hotel Diablo and is described as a horror anthology that’s “a waystation for the soul”. It was co-written by MGK alongside Eliot Rahal and Ryan Cady.
A synopsis describes the new project as “a place where your deeds in life are the keys to your eternity in the afterlife. And it’s Lidia Lopez’s first night behind the front desk. Every guest has a story to tell and a lesson to learn.”
Rahal said of the project: “This project has me feeling incredibly lucky. [Machine Gun Kelly] is an incredibly intense and passionate artist. It’s the kind of energy I respond to. He’s someone who wants to do something special, and, as a result, we have.”
Cady added: “Horror anthologies are like catnip for me, so when Colson presented the Hotel Diablo concept to us, I couldn’t help but latch on… The raw intensity of the album, this idea of a vacation to visit the darkest corner of your soul — hell yeah, y’all, sign me up.”
Hotel Diablo is available to pre-order now. It comes in a number of editions, including a deluxe version that comes with a new vinyl edition of the 2019 album. It’s expected to be released in July 2021.
The announcement of the ‘Hotel Diablo’ graphic novel comes after another project recently released by MGK, ‘Downfalls High’ which is a musical film based on the artists 2020 record, ‘Tickets To My Downfall.
The release saw over 16 million views in its first weekend and has since been released on Youtube which currently stands at 7.6 Million views.
