Taylor Momsen - The Pretty Reckless (Gexa Energy Pavilion - Dallas, TX) 6/1/14

Taylor Momsen and The Pretty Reckless make radio history as they become just the second female-fronted group ever to have two #1 hits in a row at rock radio (the last group to achieve this was The Pretenders, led by Chrissie Hynde). “Messed Up World,” the band’s new chart-topper, follows The Pretty Reckless’ first single, “Heaven Knows,” which has spent 14 weeks at #1 at mainstream rock and is the top rock song of the year.

Razor & Tie Co-Owner Cliff Chenfeld comments, “Rock is coming back big and Taylor and The Pretty Reckless are leading the charge. We are just beginning.”
The Pretty Reckless will play the popular iheart Radio Festival The Pretty Reckless continue to tour in support of their new album and will headline the Going To Hell 2014 North American tour.

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 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 Pretty Reckless has supported Guns N’ Roses, Marilyn Manson, and Evanescence 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.”
