As TAYLOR MOMSEN and her band THE PRETTY RECKLESS gear up for the March 18th release of their new album GOING TO HELL (Razor & Tie) and are currently on tour in Europe, the group will celebrate their first #1 Radio hit with their current single, “Heaven Knows.” The infectious, foot-stomping single is number #1 at Active Rock Radio this week (3/10).
The rebellious video for “Heaven Knows”–directed by Jon J and Taylor Momsen–premiered on VEVO (2/13) and has already garnered over 2.7 million views. The video can be watched here: http://vevo.ly/GlreyE.
The band, led by singer Taylor Momsen, has supported Evanescence, Guns N’ Roses and Marilyn Manson on tour in addition to headline runs in both the U.S. and abroad. Currently, THE PRETTY RECKLESS is supporting Fall Out Boy on tour in Europe (complete list of Europe dates below). The band will return to the U.S. next month for an appearance at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards (4/23), preparing them for a busy summer which has the band confirmed to perform at all of the major U.S. rock festivals, including: Rock On the Range, Rocklahoma, Monster Energy’s Fort Rock, Welcome to Rockville, Rock Fest Kansas City, among others.

“The Pretty Reckless have been touring non-stop for three years, every show a sellout,” says David Sonenberg, the band’s manager. “Taylor Momsen may have just turned twenty, but she was born to front a rock and roll band. The time is now. You can feel it. Fasten your seat belts, things are about to get serious.”

About THE PRETTY RECKLESS:
THE PRETTY RECKLESS formed in 2009 and released their debut album LIGHT ME UP in 2010 and a follow-up EP HIT ME LIKE A MAN in 2012. After two years on the road supporting LIGHT ME UP, the band has risen through rock ‘n’ roll’s ranks to become a polarizing presence. Over the course of their debut and EP, the quartet has sold over 1 million combined albums and digital singles and have supported Evanescence, Guns N’ Roses and Marilyn Manson on tour in addition to headline runs in both the U.S. and abroad. MOMSEN and her bandmates delivered nothing short of killer performances on their just-wrapped headlining North American “Going To Hell Tour” with a set list including new material off GOING TO HELL and the group’s debut LP LIGHT ME UP. Next, look for THE PRETTY RECKLESS supporting Fall Out Boy in Europe. The band is managed by David Sonenberg and William Derella of DAS Communications.
