It’s been nearly six months since The Pretty Reckless put out its third studio album, Who You Selling For, on October 21st, 2016. The band’s latest single, “Oh My God,” has been out for even longer (since September 9th, 2016), yet it is still burning up the top of the Billboard mainstream rock charts.

Since starting in 2009, The Pretty Reckless, which consists of Taylor Momsen on vocals and guitar, Jamie Perkins on drums, Mark Damon on bass, and Ben Phillips on backing vocals and guitar, have courted controversy. Momsen was previously a child actor who shed her Hollywood skin and stepped perfectly into the role of rock frontwoman.

The band’s other two albums, 2010’s Light Me Up and 2012’s Going to Hell, were huge hits as well.

Since the release of Who You Selling For, The Pretty Reckless have made music videos for singles “Take Me Down” and “Oh My God,” the former of which has nearly one million views on their official YouTube channel. The band also made a very popular lyric video for “Oh My God.”

In support of their latest album, Momsen and crew hit the road in October 2016 on the Who You Selling For Tour. The mega-tour will include 86 shows. Six of those are in South America, 27 are in Europe, and 53 are in North America.

The tour wraps up on August 27th, where the band will play in Leeds, England at Bramham Park. This month, you can see The Pretty Reckless in Brazil, Argentina, Chile, and Mexico. They’ll circle back around for their second North American leg beginning April 25th in Boston, Massachusetts at the Paradise Rock Club.
