The Pretty Reckless are an American hard rock band from New York, NY, U.S. The current members are Taylor Momsen (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Ben Phillips (lead guitar, backing vocals), Mark Damon (bass) and jamie perkins (drums).

Their debut album, Light Me Up, was released on August 30, 2010 in the UK. They released their first single on May 13, 2010. The album spawned three moderately successful singles and its most notable, “Make Me Wanna Die”, topped the UK Rock Charts upon release. The band released their second EP entitled Hit Me Like A Man EP in early 2012, along with two brand new music videos of songs previously heard on their debut effort. These releases coincided with their second tour.

Four days after the end of their first tour, they embarked on their second tour, The Medicine Tour, where they appeared as a support act for Marilyn Manson and Evanescence.
