The Pretty Reckless’ “Make Me Wanna Die” Still Making a Splash on iTunes after Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

the pretty reckless light me up coverNearly a week after their single “Make Me Wanna Die” opened up last Tuesday’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, The Pretty Reckless is still holding strong in the top 10 on the iTunes Rock charts, after climbing to the #3 spot last week.  Their album Light Me Up has been a mainstay on the iTunes Rock section since its official release in February, and reached #11 last week.

Taylor Momsen and her band recently finished a 3 show stint opening up for Guns N’ Roses, and just returned from a North American and European tour with Evanescence. The band will head to Australia in early 2011 for a string of dates with the Soundwave Revolution Festival.

The Pretty Reckless Release Album And Acoustic Performance

The Pretty Reckless will be celebrating the physical release of their debut album, Light Me Up, today at Best Buy Union Square in NYC.  “Not since Saint Joan of Jett first grabbed a guitar has hard rock sounded this sexy,” proclaims the New York Post in a review published today. Visit the band’s official website for more details on their schedule including another performance and signing at Looney Tunes in Long Island this weekend.

Check out a new stripped down performance of their song “Just Tonight” off of the album from a recent session at The Cherrytree House.


Sounds Pretty, You Reckless.

Light Me Up

The Pretty Reckless Light Me UpI bet I am exactly who Taylor Momsen would prefer listen to her music. I’ve never seen an episode of Gossip Girl, I don’t care to, and I can safely bet my life on it that I never will. No offense to Taylor, or any show groupies, but I already have an extensive tv show schedule and there just isn’t room for anymore. Being that I never saw the show that Taylor is an actress on, nor can I recall her in the Grinch movie as a kid, I am fully able to only know her as a musician in a band, playing music. It seems, this is how she would prefer to be known. There are a lot of actors who moonlight with singing, then return to acting as their cash cow. For Taylor, this seems to be reversed. Music is her calling, and acting is just her current meal ticket. Taylor casually dances around the “leaving Gossip Girl topic” by consistently saying how supportive the show is by writing her out of lines, yet anyone can see that her dream is to do this music thing, full time. Taylor will turn 18 this summer in July. She is still, only, 17! She has a lifetime ahead of her to polish new rock songs and fulfill her rockstar dream. Judging by the quality of the band’s debut album, it’s a good sign that Taylor will easily see those dreams come to fruition. [Read more…]
