A painful way of doing it…
Machine Gun Kelly has shared the release date for his upcoming new album, ‘Hotel Diablo’.
The rapper previewed the ‘Bloom’ follow-up last month by sharing the tracks ‘Hollywood Whore’ and ‘El Diablo’. Earlier in May, he told fans on social media that the LP would drop sometime in June.
Posting a video of himself having ‘Hotel Diablo’ tattooed on the back of his head, the Cleveland artist revealed a slightly delayed date. “Album comes JULY 5th,” he confirmed in the caption.

Last week, Machine Gun Kelly released ‘I Think I’m Okay’ – a collaborative track with Yungblud and Travis Barker. It is also expected to appear on ‘Hotel Diablo’, although an official tracklist is yet to be confirmed.
Kelly will be taking his new material out on the road later this summer, with UK shows taking place in Glasgow, Manchester, Bristol, Birmingham and London. The rapper is also set to appear at this year’s Reading and Leeds festivals.
