“This New York band’s brash second album rages with the upbeat, beat-wise humor that hard rock has suppressed ever since grunge‘Heaven Knows’ and ‘Why’d You Bring a Shotgun to the Party’ are full-on glam stomps about troubled teens…Taylor Momsen…also belts out reams of Catholic guilt. One song, riding a pistonlike ‘Edge of Seventeen’ pulse, is called ‘Absolution;’ ‘Going to Hell’ has its own confession-booth scene. Father, forgive her.”

–Chuck Eddy, ROLLING STONE, March 27, 2014

 

TAYLOR MOMSEN and her band THE PRETTY RECKLESS release their new album GOING TO HELL today (3/18) on Razor & Tie. The hard-rocking group is enjoying their second consecutive week at #1 at Active Rock radio with their first #1 radio hit, the infectious, foot-stomping “Heaven Knows.”  The song’s rebellious video–directed by Jon J and Taylor Momsen–has garnered over 3 million views since premiering on VEVO (2/13). Check out the video here:http://vevo.ly/GlreyE. Meanwhile, the official music video for the album title track Going To Hell,” is now approaching 5 million views.

 

In addition to Rolling StoneGOING TO HELL is garnering top praise from the following outlets:

Going to Hell is a hyper-charged, multifaceted expression of youthful angst; it’s also composed of strong songwriting that reveals an abundance of musical influences that span the history of rock from the late ’60s to the present. From song to song, whiffs of Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, T. Rex, Black Sabbath, Fleetwood Mac, Nirvana, Garbage, Blondie, and Alice in Chains filter through the brazen riffs and caustic vocals without being blatantly derivative.”

–Jon Wiederhorn, YAHOO!, March 4, 2014

“…rock’s newest bad girlTaylor Momsen of The Pretty Reckless.”

            –Stephanie Radvan, MAXIM, November 2013

Going to Hell is anthemic, heavy rock swagger with Momsen as its unapologetically sexy, bad girl preacher at the pulpit-a visual lightning rod who has the pipes and attitude to back it all up (see opener ‘Follow me Down’ or the solid ballad ‘House on a Hill’) when it all comes down.”

–George Pachecho, OUTBURN (8-out-of-10 Album review, March-May)

“This is a shell-shocked, stripped-down form of modern rock ‘n roll that sounds at times like HEART in their early years and even their most recent few albums. Taylor Momsen carries some Lita Ford edges to her vocals on a couple songs, but she assumes her own identity brewed of rock, blues and country and she is well on her way to becoming a force in hard rock.… [Going To Hell is] a fierce and entertaining record.”

—Ray Van Horn, Jr., BLABBERMOUTH, (March 3, 2014)

“…musically, the album is top notch…and Momsen’s range has evolved into one of the great voices in music… Going to Hell is easily one of the best albums of 2014.”

–Jason Tanamor, YAHOO.COM’ VOICES, February 7, 2014

Taylor Momsen is a strong vocalist. A badass rocker chick and a committed musician. In fact, she’s more committed to her art form than a lot of artists.”

–Jon Steely, HUFFINGTONPOST.COM, February 6, 2014

Going To Hell the sophomore effort from her band of rock n roll heathens, The Pretty Reckless, which sees them occupying a heavy yet melodic foray into unabashed 80s style sex, metal and gritRaw riffs and rock hard spirit define the music on Going To Hell, while Momsen’s vocals have improved both in power and charisma from the group’s Light Me Up debut, signaling a jump straight into rock goddess territory…”

–George Pachecho, OUTBURN (Feature story, March-May)

THE PRETTY RECKLESS previewed four songs from the GOING TO HELL album leading up to release.  The official music video for the album title track Going To Hell,” leads the way approaching 5 million viewslyric video for the bracing Follow Me Down,” a teaser for Burn,” and a Fan Lyric Video (compiled from fan Instagram submissions), for Heaven Knows.” Recently, TAYLOR sat down with Rollingstone.com to recount the process of recording this album after having to start over following Hurricane Sandy’s wrath that ravaged their studio; check out the interview here: http://tinyurl.com/ncpznvk.
