MGK and Mod Sun wrote and directed what they described as a “first of its kind musical film experience.” The pop-punk star and his Tickets producer Travis Barker narrate the 49-minute musical film Downfalls High, which stars TikTok star Chase Hudson and Euphoria actress Sydney Sweeney as a couple navigating high school. The musical film also features his Tickets collaborators Trippie Redd, Blackbear and Iann Dior as well as Maggie Lindemann.
“We’re making a new pop-punk Grease,” MGK told NME last fall. “It was almost like shooting 14 music videos back-to-back, but with a narrative that’s outside of my personal life stories. It focuses on other characters, 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.”
Downfalls High will premiere on Friday, Jan. 15 at 9:00 p.m. ET/ 6:00 p.m. PT on MGK’s Facebook page. It will be available to watch for free.
