Following an extensive US tour this spring, New York City’s THE PRETTY RECKLESS have today announced a major UK tour this autumn culminating at London’s O2 Academy Brixton.
The outing marks Taylor Momsen’s (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Ben Phillips (lead guitar, backing vocals), Mark Damon (bass), and Jamie Perkins (drums) first run of dates since 2016–2017’s ‘Who You Selling For Tour’ and also sees them embark on a run of European festival appearances throughout the summer, including Download Festival.
The Pretty Reckless’ unbelievable journey has quietly brought them from sweaty small gigs to successive number one hits, platinum plaques, and some of the biggest stages in the world—unprecedented for a rock act this century.
Formed in New York City during 2008, the musicians and late producer Kato Khandwala initially made waves with their 2010 debut, Light Me Up. After countless gigs, they lit a fuse to burn everything down on Going To Hell in 2014. Not only did the record crash the Top 5 of the Billboard Top 200, but it also ignited three #1 hits—the Platinum-certified ‘Heaven Knows’ (the biggest rock song of 2014), ‘Fucked Up World’ and ‘Follow Me Down’. Meanwhile, their third offering, Who You Selling For, saw them return to #1 on the Mainstream Rock Songs Chart with ‘Take Me Down’ which cemented them as “the first band to send its first four singles to #1 on the chart,” according to Billboard.
2021 saw them return with their lauded fourth studio album, Death by Rock and Roll and they sound more alive than ever…
