The Pretty Reckless, ‘Going to Hell’ – March 2014 Release of the Month
Congrats are in order for The Pretty Reckless, as their new album ‘Going to Hell’ has been voted by the Noisecreep readers as the March 2014 Release of the Month. The disc, which drops March 18 via Razor & Tie, has been generating a lot of buzz over the last couple of months due to the breakout tracks ‘Going to Hell’ and ‘Heaven Knows.’
The Pretty Reckless fans helped the album earn a decisive victory as ‘Going to Hell’ bested upcoming releases from Memphis May Fire (‘Unconditional’), Architects U.K. (‘Lost Forever / Lost Together’), Fuel (‘Puppet Strings’) and Gojira (‘Les Enfants Sauvages’ book and live CD/DVD) to take home the title.
‘Going to Hell’ is the band’s second album, following their 2010 release ‘Light Me Up.’ Frontwoman Taylor Momsen has stated that the album shows a growth from their previous work, offering a more diverse selection of songs and adding more production elements to the music. The group has enjoyed a steadily increasing buzz leading into the album.
Last fall, they issued the title track to the album and the corresponding video topped the Noisecreep Battle Royale Video Countdown for a couple of weeks. Shortly afterward, the single ‘Heaven Knows’ hit the airwaves and has been hovering near the top of the rock charts in recent weeks. The band recently revealed a sizzling new video for ‘Heaven Knows,’ which can be seen here. In addition, fans can check out acoustic versions of ‘Going to Hell’ at Loudwire and ‘Heaven Knows’ at Popcrush.
Momsen recently told PopCrush, “I’m excited for the whole record to come out because I’m A) Dying to play it and B) Dying for people to hear it.” In addition to the two singles, she pointed to ‘Sweet Things’ as a favorite track off the album, and fans have also gotten early tastes of ‘Follow Me Down’ and ‘Burn’ as well.
The Pretty Reckless will spend most of March in the U.K. and Europe before returning to the States for dates in April and May. See their full itinerary here. And for those interested in purchasing the ‘Going to Hell’ album, there are a number of pre-order bundle options available at this location.
