BAND NOMINATED FOR IHEART RADIO MUSIC AWARD FOR ROCK SONG OF THE YEAR

 

NEW VIDEO FOR SECOND SINGLE, “OH MY GOD” OUT NOW:

 

THE ALBUM WHO YOU SELLING FOR AVAILABLE ON

                                                    RAZOR & TIE

 

February 15, 2017 - The Pretty Reckless continue their ascent on the rock charts with the release of their new single, “Oh My God.”  “It's just me and the band, pouring ourselves into the song, and into the camera.  It's subtle, you have to really watch it to understand all the layers, but it's honest, and that to me always yields the best art.” says lead singer Taylor Momsen  

 

The song is already in the top 10 on the active rock chart and the video can be viewed here: http://vevo.ly/wsMImY.

   

“Take Me Down,” nominated for Rock Song of The Year at the upcoming iHeart Radio Music Awards taking place March 5 was the first #1 rock single from their latest album Who You Selling For. This milestone marks the fourth consecutive #1 for the band, who broke records as the first female-fronted band to have three chart toppers in a row with “Heaven Knows,” “Messed Up World” and “Follow Me Down” (all from 2014’s Going To Hell) - a feat that has not been accomplished since The Pretenders in 1984, over 30 years ago. 

 

The Pretty Reckless will perform on CONAN February 28

 

The Pretty Reckless’ extraordinary third studio album Who You Selling For features the bands #1 rock hit  “Take Me Down.”  Produced by longtime collaborator Kato Khandwala, Who You Selling For expands the band’s sound to encompass soul, blues and rock and roll. The songs were written by front woman Taylor Momsen and guitarist Ben Phillips. Momsen’s dark lyrics and raw, charismatic vocals are on full display and the band delivers at full intensity with a level of musicianship that raises the bar.

 

Huffington Post says, Who You Selling For is a fire-breathing monster of a record that offers adrenaline-rush stompers (“Oh My God”), revolutionary rockers (“Living in The Storm,” “Take Me Down”), breathtaking ballads (“Who You Selling For,” “Bedroom Window”) and pretty-gritty R&B (“Wild City” is like taking a step back into 1970s Motown). 

 

The Oakland Press quipped, “"Part Kurt Cobain, part Janis Joplin, Momsen showed off some serious vocal chops and towering onstage charisma — the kind that hints this one-time actress is genuinely focused on achieving enduring musical relevance."

 

TPR will continue to tour throughout the year in support of the album, hitting major markets and festival shows including Rock on The Range, Carolina Rebellion and Rocklahoma  

in the US as well as European and South American dates. Additional tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks.

Life in lyrics has always been my style, so as my favorite country artist Wade Hayes sings, I am living my life and chasing my dreams!
