Two years after the release of their debut album, The Pretty Reckless released an EP, Hit Me Like a Man, along with two new music videos of songs off of their debut album. Their second album, Going to Hell, was released in 2014, and was made famous by the songs “Kill Me,” “Going To Hell,” and “Heaven Knows“; all three topped the UK and U.S. Rock Charts.
The Pretty Reckless went on a worldwide tour in 2010 to support their debut album. Four days after the end of their worldwide tour, they embarked on their second tour, The Medicine Tour, where they appeared as a support act for Marilyn Manson and Evanescence.
