We discuss the band's latest album DEATH BY ROCK AND ROLL, the creative process, song writing, healing, classic rock artists, and much more.
PRESS RELEASE: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE DEATH BY ROCK AND ROLL THE PRETTY RECKLESS have released their highly anticipated fourth album Death By Rock And Roll via Century Media in Canada and Fearless Records Worldwide. The 12-track album follows 2010's Light Me Up, 2014's Going To Hell, and 2016's Who You Selling For. The album's debut single and title track rocketed to No. 1 on the radio charts and held strong for several weeks. It marked the fifth No. 1 single of the band's career and was heralded by Paper, Loudwire, CNN, Forbes, and more. The band also has the incredible and impressive distinction of being the first female-fronted band to have back-to-back No. 1 singles at the active rock format and the first female-fronted act to have five No. 1 singles on the Billboard chart. Leading into the album release, The Pretty Reckless released stunning music videos for standout tracks "And So It Went" and "25." The accompanying visual for "And So It Went" — a timely anthem featuring Tom Morello — personifies angst and unrest. The hauntingly glamorous visual for "25" has already garnered over 4 million views. DEATH BY ROCK AND ROLL TRACK LISTING: "Death By Rock And Roll" "Only Love Can Save Me Now" "And So It Went" "25" "My Bones" "Got So High" "Broomsticks" "Witches Burn" "Standing At The Wall" "Turning Gold" "Rock And Roll Heaven" "Harley Darling" ABOUT THE PRETTY RECKLESS: The Pretty Reckless formed in New York City during 2008, and the musicians and late producer Kato Khandwala initially made waves with their 2010 debut Light Me Up. After countless gigs, the band returned with 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" — a feat that had not been accomplished by a female-fronted group since The Pretenders in 1984. 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. Praise followed from Vogue, Nylon, and more as the quartet lit up television shows such as Letterman and Conan. With over half-a-billion streams, they headlined countless sold out shows and toured with Guns N' Roses, Soundgarden, and many other heavy hitters. The title track of their fourth album Death By Rock And Roll hit No. 1 on the rock charts and stayed there for multiple weeks. It marked the fifth No. 1 single of the band's career. The Pretty Reckless are also the first female-fronted band to have back-to-back No. 1 singles at the active rock format. They are also the first female-fronted act to have five No. 1 singles on the Billboard chart.
