Beginning May 5, the group canvases North America, performing in intimate venues in major cities such as New York, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, and more.
Along the way, The Pretty Reckless appear at all of the major Spring festivals, including Welcome to Rockville, Sonic Temple, and Rocklahoma, sharing stages with Metallica, Deftones, and more. All dates are below.

“It’s been a long time since we’ve been out there and we’re excited to hit the road this spring,” says singer Taylor Momsen. “The new record is almost finished, the songs are incredibly personal, but we’re ready to start sharing what we’ve been through the last couple years with the people that mean the most to us, our fans. See you all soon!”
The Pretty Reckless, who enjoyed four consecutive No. 1 singles and have established themselves as a rock force to be reckoned with, are working on their fourth record. The album is shaping up to be their most deeply personal release yet and will take listeners on a journey from darkness into light like only they can. It will also feature some can’t-miss collaborations with several iconic artists. The band plans to release a new single this spring, with the album to follow later this year.
The Pretty Reckless are managed by David Sonenberg and Erica Ramon for DAS Communications Ltd.

ABOUT THE PRETTY RECKLESS:
Since forming in 2009, The Pretty Reckless quietly made history, sold out shows, and fiercely claimed a place at the forefront of modern rock music. The group’s 2010 debut, Light Me Up, ignited this rise. However, 2014’s Going to Hell set the whole genre ablaze. It debuted in the Top 5 of the Billboard Top 200 and spawned three #1 hits—the gold-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. Their third opus Who You Selling For boasted a diverse set of standout tracks, including “Oh My God,” Back to the River,” and “Take Me Down.” It also garnered press praise from Vogue, Nylon, and Billboard. Along the way, the group toured with the likes of Soundgarden and Guns N’ Roses and tallied half-a-billion streams. They maintain their place as rock outliers and leaders in 2020.
