The video drops just ahead of the band’s fourth LP which arrives on February 12th via Fearless Records.
The Pretty Reckless have released the official visual companion to the current single showcasing a fiery collaboration with rock music’s cultural ambassador, Tom Morello.
The track “And So It Went” served as yet another potent offering from the band’s fourth LP, Death By Rock and Roll, set to premiere on February 12th via Fearless Records. Following the successful release of singles including the band’s fifth No. 1 hit in the album’s title track and the elegant “25,” the Morello-assisted jaunt is an incendiary mirror of our of current contentious social climate.
“The world has been in such a state of civil unrest,” singer Taylor Momsen previously said about the track. “‘And So It Went’ basically comes from that vision. As a songwriter, I feel like I’m not here to preach. I use music to observe and communicate what I see around me. This song felt like the perfect storm for Tom Morello to join in and rip the sound waves apart with his guitar. It was more than a pleasure having him add his unique and defining sound to the song.”
Morello explained how he connected with Momsen and his pride in the project. “I got to perform with Taylor Momsen at the Chris Cornell memorial show. We rocked ‘Loud Love’ and she nailed it — no easy task. Thank goodness she and her band continue to fly the flag for rock ‘n’ roll in a mighty way.”
Flying that flag is something The Pretty Reckless most certainly achieves. The band’s fourth album includes some especially significant milestones marked by their fifth No. 1 single of the band’s career, in addition to being the first female-fronted band to have back-to-back No. 1 singles at the active rock format. The Pretty Reckless are also the first female-fronted act to have five No. 1 singles on the Billboard chart.
Death By Rock and Roll is already proving a triumph and the roll out is yet to be completed. The album arrives February 12th on Fearless Records and can be pre-ordered – HERE
