THE PRETTY RECKLESS KICK OFF SPRING TOUR – DATES WITH SOUNDGARDEN AND MAJOR FESTIVAL SHOWS INCLUDING FORT ROCK, CAROLINA REBELLION, NORTHERN INVASION AND ROCK ON THE RANGE


April 27, 2017The Pretty Reckless have dominated the rock charts over the last 8 years garnering four number one singles along the way. Their brand new single, “Back To The River” finds the band experimenting with a classic southern rock and blues sound and features Gov’t Mule’s legendary guitar virtuoso Warren Haynes.  We had this great southern rock track called Back to the River, we recorded the whole thing live and left sections open for some lead parts.  I think it was our guitarist Ben who said, we should call Warren Haynes.  We did, he said yes, and we’re thrilled he did because he raised the song to a new level.  His playing is extraordinary.” says lead singer Taylor Momsen  

 “Back To The River” has already been added at WMMR Philadelphia, the biggest rock station in the country.  Stream the song here: http://bit.ly/2piJ5Lh 

   In addition, the band have been nominated for two Alternative Press Music Awards for Artist Of The Year and Best Hard Rock Artist.  The fourth annual APMA’s will broadcast live July 17 from Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena where the band will also perform.

 “Take Me Down,” which was nominated for Rock Song of The Year at this year’s iHeart Radio Music Awards was the first #1 rock single from their latest album Who You Selling For. This milestone marked 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’ 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). 

 TPR will continue to tour throughout the year in support of the album.  They kick off the tour this week with upcoming shows with Soundgarden & various festival shows including Rock on The Range, Carolina Rebellion and Northern Invasion in the US as well as Europe. Additional tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
