This week, The Pretty Reckless released their newest EP Hit Me Like A Man the same week their North American tour kicked off today in Tucson, Arizona. Their 35-city Medicine Tour stops at Hollywood's House of Blues next Wednesday with support from Parlor Mob and The Hollywood Kills.


Hit Me Like a Man is second offering after last year's debut album Light Me Up debuted on the UK's rock chart at #1, spending six consecutive weeks in the top spot. It includes three new tracks, "Hit Me Like a Man," "Under The Water," "Cold Blooded" as well as two live tracks "Make Me Wanna Die" and "Since You're Gone," songs which appeared in Light Me Up.

Momsen who recently left her gig on "Gossip Girl" to pursue her music career has made the smooth transition most actors-turned-musicians can't accomplish. The Pretty Reckless' music is testosterone driven with slashing guitars and ferociously growling vocals. It's not surprising since all her music idols were all men – The Beatles, Led Zepplin, The Who, Pink Floyd, Soundgarden, White Stripes and Nirvana to name a few.
