THE PRETTY RECKLESS Breaks Rock Chart Record

Posted October 28, 2016 by Josh Drespling in Empire Extreme News Feed

According to The Pulse Of Radio, THE PRETTY RECKLESS have broken a record set by 3 DOORS DOWN and have now seen their first four mainstream singles hit No. 1 on Billboard‘s rock chart. The band’s new song, “Take Me Down”, topped the chart this week, following in the footsteps of “Heaven Knows”, “Messed Up World” and “Follow Me Down” from 2014’s “Going To Hell” album. That broke the group’s tie with 3 DOORS DOWN and put them in a position to tie or break the next record, five No. 1 singles, which is owned for now by Canada’s THREE DAYS GRACE.

THE PRETTY RECKLESS also now have the most No. 1 singles by a female-fronted rock act.

“Take Me Down” is from the band’s third studio set, “Who You Selling For”, which arrived last Friday (October 21).

THE PRETTY RECKLESS singer Taylor Momsen told The Pulse Of Radio that the band’s goals for making the new disc were simple. “Our goal with this record was to try not to try, to have everything be very relaxed, everything very organic,” she said. “So everything was done very organically and I think in the studio we very much kept with that ethic. Not that that’s a new ethic for us, but we just went further down that path of ‘try not to try’ and really try to capture the performance and, you know, for lack of a better word, that magic moment.”

Momsen said in a recent interview that the new disc was “very eclectic” and “very diverse,” adding, “It takes lots of turns in many different directions.” Alternative Nation labeled it their “most daring, progressive album yet.”

The band is supporting the new record with a North American tour that stops on Saturday (October 29) at the Voodoo Music Experience festival in New Orleans.
