LOS ANGELES (Top40 Charts)
As TAYLOR MOMSEN and her band THE PRETTY RECKLESS gear up for the March 18 release of their new album GOING TO HELL (Razor & Tie), the group have unveiled the rebellious video for their hit single "Heaven Knows," which is now bulleted at #4 on Rock Radio
and praised as "infectious and foot-stomping'" by Noisecreep.com (12/17/13). The striking clip was directed by Jon J and Taylor Momsen. Shot on location in Miami, the video was executive produced by Taylor Momsen, David
Derella and Erica Ramon
with post-production from Rhino Studios and additional editing by Tizzy. Watch "Heaven Knows " here: https://vevo.ly/GlreyE .
Says Taylor, "How do you sum up a song that is metaphorically speaking about everyone's life from any general perspective on video? You understate it. We decided to film variations of all of the issues we as a people are facing, whether personal, political or social. We took a lot of shots, each representing some social constant or emotional struggle. Some overt, some subtle, but it's all in there. Everything
is thrown at you from the day you're born, you're only chance is to think for yourself…which is not as simple as it sounds."
GOING TO HELL is now available for pre-order on iTunes -with a special price of $7.99: https://georiot.co/PrettyReckless .
