Kick-Ass: Music from the Motion Picture is now available everywhere! The KICK-ASS soundtrack album opens with “Make Me Wanna Die,” the first official commercial release by new Interscope recording group The Pretty Reckless. The band is fronted by singer-songwriter Taylor Momsen, who is also one of the stars of CW’s hugely popular TV series, Gossip Girl. The release of The Pretty Reckless debut album on Interscope is slated for June 22nd; two days later the group joins the 16th annual Vans Warped Tour 2010 for its two-month trek, running through August 15th.
In addition to The Pretty Reckless, the KICK-ASS soundtrack album features the brand new title track by multi-platinum selling artist MIKA, who goes head-to-head with producer of the moment RedOne (Lady Gaga/Little Boots). The album’s heady mix of tracks spans the ’70s to the ’00s, with songs from the New York Dolls, Sparks, the Dickies, Primal Scream, the Prodigy, the Little Ones, 2010 BRIT Award-winner Ellie Goulding, and Japan’s Zongamin.
KICK-ASS, presented by Lionsgate and MARV, stars Aaron Johnson (who played teenage John Lennon in 2009’s Nowhere Boy) as Dave Lizewski, aka Kick-Ass. The plot thickens when he encounters Academy Award® winner Nicolas Cage as the mysterious vigilante Big Daddy. He is working with his 11-year old sword-wielding dynamo daughter Hit Girl (played by Chloë Grace Moretz of (500) Days Of Summer) to bring down the local drug baron Frank D’Amico (Mark Strong of Sherlock Holmes). As Kick-Ass inspires a subculture of copycats, a friendship is forged with another fledgling crimefighter, Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse of Superbad).
