I didn’t know she can sing, her voice is pretty good too,
Even though I can’t say amazing
And the songs are great!
But hell sure she can dress at her shows
- The song that I like at her band is “Makes Me Wanna Die”
Well I was a fan of Taylor Momsen long before this
The Pretty Reckless
The Pretty Reckless is a rock band formed and fronted by Momsen. The band has toured with Momsen on vocals, John Secolo on guitar, Matt Chiarelli on bass, and Nick Carbone on drums. The band was originally to be called “The Reckless”, but was changed to The Pretty Reckless due to trademark problems.
Momsen has stated in an interview with OK! Magazine that the band has signed with Interscope Records and will be releasing their debut album later this year. In another interview Momsen briefly discussed the sound of the band, saying it would be “not what people are going to expect” and will feature a dark and heavy sound but would have “lighter, fun stuff as well.” In an interview with MTV, Momsen revealed the influences on the band include The Beatles along with many grunge bands, such as Soundgarden, Audioslave, and Nirvana. She also stated that her personal influences also include Debbie Harry, Joan Jett, Cherie Currie and Courtney Love.
In early to mid 2009 The Pretty Reckless opened for The Veronicas on their North American tour. The band’s setlist included songs such as “Panic”, “Blender”, “I, Zombie”, “He loves you”, “Sleeze Sister”, “Heart”, “Void & Dull”, “Ugly People”, “Good Girls”, “Bleeding”, “Superhero” and “Chaotic Sanity”.
As of August 17, 2009, the band’s MySpace page is streaming demos of the songs “Zombie” and “He Loves You”. On December 30, 2009, the band released a new promo song entitled “Make Me Wanna Die.” The song was uploaded for free download to fans on the Interscope Records website.
The Pretty Reckless launched the song “Make Me Wanna Die” on the 2010 “Kick-Ass” soundtrack, available on iTunes. The song will also be double as the bands first single from their debut release on May 17th. The band will be playing the entire 2010 Warped Tour.
