New York based hard rock band The Pretty Reckless are finally back with their first single in four years with "Death By Rock and Roll". Their third studio album Who You Selling For was released in 2016 and fans have eagerly been waiting for their return. Might I add, it was worth the long wait.
Over the course of the last 12 years, vocalist Taylor Momsen has grown up before our eyes and showed us just how powerful her voice truly is with this latest release. Many of you may remember her for her acting career where she played roles such as Cindy Lou Who in How the Grinch Stole Christmas as a kid and then later from her role in the show Gossip Girl. She gave up her acting career to pursue her true passion for music, this choice proved to be a great career move.
Due to the Corona Virus sweeping the globe, their return to touring has been put on pause but that doesn't mean the music shouldn't be enjoyed. This latest single just proves the growth of this band as a whole and how well they mesh together. One thing is for sure, The Pretty Reckless is ready to take over once again.
Formed in New York City during 2008, The Pretty Reckless and late producer Kato Khandwala initially made waves with their 2010 debut, Light Me Up. After countless gigs, the band returned with Going To Hell in 2014. Not only did the record crash the Top 5 of the Billboard Top 200, but it also ignited three #1 hits—the gold-certified “Heaven Knows” (the biggest rock song of 2014), “Fucked Up World,” and “Follow Me Down”—a feat that had not been accomplished by a female-fronted group since The Pretenders in 1984. Meanwhile, their third offering, Who You Selling For, saw them return to #1 on the Mainstream Rock Songs Chart with “Take Me Down,” which cemented them as “the first band to send its first four singles to #1 on the chart,” according to Billboard. Praise followed from Vogue, Nylon, and more as the quartet lit up television shows such as Letterman and Conan. With over half-a-billion streams, they headlined countless sold out shows and toured with Guns N’ Roses and many other heavy hitters.
