    Biography

    Like her co-star Leighton Meester, Taylor Momsen rose to fame as an actress on the TV series Gossip Girl before launching a separate music career. She formed the Reckless in 2009, later changing the band's name to the Pretty Reckless to avoid trademark problems. With Momsen on vocals, John Secolo on guitar, Matt Chiarelli on bass, and Nick Carbone on drums, the group began finding a balance between hard rock and post-grunge, taking cues from female-fronted bands like Hole and the Runaways along the way. They worked quickly, playing some initial shows in New York City before landing an opening slot on the Veronicas' North American tour several months later. The tour went well, and Interscope Records signed the band before the year was up.

    The Pretty Reckless completely revised its lineup in 2010, with Momsen retaining her frontwoman role as guitarist Ben Philips, bassist Mark Damon, and drummer Jamie Perkins all replaced her previous bandmates. After spending several months in the studio, the group released its first single, "Make Me Wanna Die," on the Kick-A*s soundtrack.
