The Pretty Reckless' second full-length album Going to Hell flirts with those themes, most notably on the raucous and roaring title track. Over a twisting and turning riff and bombastic rhythm, frontwoman Taylor Momsen confidently announces, "I'm going to Hell."
Even if the making of Going to Hell ofren felt like some kind of divine prank, one senses this is their moment. After two years on the road The Pretty Reckless - Momsen, Bend PHillips, Marke Damon, and Jamie Perkins - had risen through rock 'n' roll s ranks to become a profound, and often polarizing, presence. The quartet sold of 650,000 albums and over 1 million digital tracks performing as headliners all around the globe and supporting acts such as Guns N' Roses and Marilyn Manson.
Ultimately GOING TO HELL is rock 'n' roll in its purest form. The Pretty Reckless holds nothing back. "We did this album with the mindset of having no boundaries," Momsen concludes. " We didn't follow any formulas or trends. We said anything we wanted to say. This is us."
