Great news The Pretty Reckless fansIt's Happening! THE PRETTY RECKLESS's official Instagram account shared a short video from the studio and captioned it simply "#5". A day later, Taylor Momsen posted what appears to be a new picture of her in the studio with Jonathan Wyman, (who co-produced THE PRETTY RECKLESS's 2021 "Death By Rock And Roll") 🤘❤️ Really looking forward to this!

Check out my interview with Taylor Momsen from Sonic Temple last May (2023) where Momsen revealed that she and her THE PRETTY RECKLESS bandmates had commenced work on the follow-up to "Death By Rock And Roll".

"We're in a great headspace. We're just having fun with it, and wrapping up the tour cycle of 'Death By Rock And Roll'. And then new record — and it's next chapter. We've already kind of started it… We've gotten into a studio; we've stepped foot into a studio. So that's saying something for us."

When I asked when fans can expect to hear new music from THE PRETTY RECKLESS, "I don't know how long it's gonna take. I have no dates for anyone or any more insight other than that. But we have walked into a studio and we are super, super excited."

THE PRETTY RECKLESS formed in 2009 and consists of Momsen, guitarist Ben Phillips, bassist Mark Damon and drummer Jamie Perkins. They have tallied seven No. 1 singles at the rock format throughout its career.

Papa Roach Release Live Version Of “Scars” With Chris Daughtry To Benefit Suicide Prevention

unnamed
"Scars (feat Chris Daughtry) (Live)" serves as the latest release on the band's EP "Leave A Light (Talk Away The Dark)".

"Joining voices with the legendary Chris Daughtry on "Scars'' was not only a surprise for fans at a sold out show, but the live recording was so great that we wanted to share it with the world. Immediately, Chris was all-in on this track also benefitting the AFSP and their mission to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide - a cause that means so much to us both." - Jacoby Shaddix

Last year, Papa Roach made a $150,000 donation to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) "Talk Away The Dark Campaign" and pledged a perpetual royalty from the song's use, to be donated directly to the AFSP to continue their mission to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide long after the "Revolutions Live Tour" concluded. They also officially re-named their song "Leave A Light On (Talk Away The Dark)", after the "Talk Away The Dark" campaign. 

"Scars feat. Chris Daughtry (Live)" royalties will also be donated to the AFSP in support of their "Talk Away The Dark" campaign. This initiative teaches the warning signs for suicide, and how to have a conversation that could save a life.

"It was an honor to perform this classic which has been a personal favorite with my friend Jacoby and the boys when they came to Nashville. It's an even greater honor that it is being used to do some good for an organization that is close to my heart." - Chris Daughtry
