Artist Direct spoke with Machine Gun Kelly about his new album “Lace Up” and having Avenged Sevenfold lead singer M Shadows featured on one of the tracks.
AD: It’s like your world opens up there. MGK: Then, I’m fast-forwarding. Where my baby’s mom was staying at during the time was a really rough area. When I got my record deal, I ended up moving them out of there. I’d be tucking my child in, and I’d hear trashcans falling over. I’d look outside and see pitbulls fighting. You’d see crack fiends running up and down the street. Having all that shit come together on the first track, it’s like, “Yo, this is the person you’re about to hear an album from”. It’s the guy who’s seeing all of this shit. Then, you hear this scream and howl of “Can’t you save me?” and cry for help by a fucking metal singer. M. Shadows (Avenged Sevenfold) isn’t just a metal singer though. In my honest opinion, he’s one of the greatest lead vocalists since Axl Rose. The way he works his voice is amazing. I actually recorded that personally. I flew out to his house. It was just me and him in the studio. I got to record that shit live with no music. I got to hear how ear-piercing it was. I’m just glad that was how we started the album. Fast forward to “What I Do”, the record with Bun B. I’d never heard Bun B rap in that fat cadence before, ever. I felt like he gave me a gem.
As you can see, I am slowly getting back on track with the website itself again. Most of the information is back on the website again, except for the lyrics. I will no longer publish Avenged Sevenfold’s lyrics on the website, because it is simply too much work for something that hardly anyone will use. If you are looking for Avenged Sevenfold lyrics, simply go to Google.com and search for “Avenged Sevenfold (lyric title here) lyrics” and you will get plenty of results!
Also, many people kept bugging me about it, so here it is again, the gallery! It’s not complete yet, but I am working on it as we speak! So stay tuned as it will be finished soon!
