The Pretty Reckless is a highly produced rock act fronted by Taylor Momsen, which rose to prominence with its second album Going To Hell. Fans of the show “Gossip Girl” also know Momsen as the face of Jenny Humphrey, but she sang about themes of condemnation and sin in the last LP, a stark contrast from her character on the show. 

Several years ago in an interview with Pollstar Momsen said although she first gained recognition as an actress, she has always seen herself as a musician first, and she feels that The Pretty Reckless’s music stands on its own and does not rely on her name recognition. 

The new project, titled Who You Selling For, was largely written on the road by Momsen and guitarist Ben Phillips and will be unveiled Oct. 21. The band also includes Mark Damon on bass and Jamie Perkins on drums.

The run kicks off at  in Tulsa, Okla., Oct 20, the night before the album’s release. Along the way festivals like  and  are on the menu, and tour extends throughout November, wrapping up in Los Angeles Dec. 6 at the .
