The Pretty Reckless Announce Going To Hell Tour

If there is one thing that I love sharing here on the blog, its a touring run because there is really no better way to see what a band is all about than on the live concert stage. With that said, let’s get to the recently released information from the people behind the scenes of The Pretty Reckless. I’ll return at the close.

The Press Release:
The Pretty Reckless announce the Going To Hell 2014 North American tour. The band will kick off the headline tour on September 10th in Boston, MA and will wrap on November 8th in New York City. Adelitas Way will open for part of the tour with additional acts to be announced soon. Tickets are on sale HERE. The Pretty Reckless is currently on tour in support of their new album Going To Hell with upcoming festival dates including Rock On the Range, Rocklahoma, Monster Energy’s Fort Rock, Rock Fest Kansas City, among others (all tour dates below).

Led by singer Taylor Momsen, The Pretty Reckless’ single “Heaven Knows” is the most successful song this year at Active and Mainstream Rock Radio and is now crossing over to Alternative Rock with additional plays at Pop Radio. The song spent five weeks at #1 at Active Rock and is currently #1 at Mainstream Rock for over 8 weeks. Going To Hell was released on March 18th and debuted at #5 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart. The release has garnered praise from press and fans alike. Rolling Stone raves, “This New York band’s brash second album rages with the upbeat, beat-wise humor that hard rock has suppressed ever since grunge. ‘Heaven Knows’ and ‘Why’d You Bring a Shotgun to the Party’ are full-on glam stomps.”

The rebellious video for the “Heaven Knows” has garnered over 6 million views since premiering on VEVO– watch here: Meanwhile, the music video for the album title track “Going To Hell,” is now over 6.5 million views. The Pretty Reckless has supported Evanescence, Guns N’ Roses and Marilyn Manson on tour in addition to headline runs in both the U.S. and abroad. The band recently performed Revolver Golden Gods Awards in April where Taylor joined Joan Jett on stage for a performance of the hit song “I Hate Myself For Loving You.”

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. The band is managed by David Sonenberg, William Derella, and Erica Ramon of DAS Communications.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m still pretty new to this band when compared to those friends who’ve been digging into them and their sound for a longer time but I do like what I’ve heard on tracks and seen on video so when this one hits one of our favorite haunts of the Best Buy Theater, I am hoping to be a part of that performance. What do you readers think of this tour? Let me know down in the comments section below.
