“Going To Hell”, the second album from THE PRETTY RECKLESS, the band led by actress-turned-singer Taylor Momsen, is likely to sell between 30,000 and 35,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to industry web site Hits Daily Double. The estimate was based on one-day sales reports compiled after the record arrived in stores on March 18 via Razor & Tie. The chart will be unveiled on Wednesday, March 26.

According to The Pulse Of Radio, THE PRETTY RECKLESS has become the second female-fronted act in the last three years to hit No. 1 on the rock radio chart. The band’s new single, “Heaven Knows”, hit the top of the survey last week, allowing THE PRETTY RECKLESS to join the Lzzy Hale-fronted HALESTORM as part of a small and very select list of chart-topping rock acts fronted by women.

“Going To Hell” follows up THE PRETTY RECKLESS‘ 2010 debut full-length, “Light Me Up”, as well as a 2012 EP called “Hit Me Like A Man”.

Momsen began her career as an actress when she was a child before becoming a full-time musician years later. She told The Pulse Of Radio that her family always knew this was what she really wanted to do. “They knew that music was always where I was headed, and what my — that was my passion and my goal,” she said. “I mean, acting was a day job, essentially, while I worked on writing a record’s worth of material that I wanted people to hear, and finding the right people to work with and the right band and all that. So they weren’t surprised when I jumped ship.”

The video for “Heaven Knows”, in which Momsen appears semi-nude, has gotten more than 2.7 million views on VEVO.

THE PRETTY RECKLESS is currently supporting FALL OUT BOY on tour in Europe and will return to the U.S. next month for an appearance at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards on April 23 in Los Angeles.

The band is also confirmed to perform at all of the major U.S. rock festivals, including Rock On the Range, Rocklahoma, Fort Rock, Welcome To Rockville, Rock Fest Kansas City and others.

Rock band SIXX: A.M. — which consists of bassist Nikki Sixx, guitarist DJ Ashba and vocalist James Michael — is continuing work on material for its third album, tentatively due early next year.

In a brand new interview with Revolver magazine, Sixx — who has just embarked on a twelve-show residency with MÖTLEY CRÜE at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas — spoke about how the new CD is different about its predecessors. “When we did [our 2007 debut] ‘The Heroin Diaries’, it was the soundtrack to a book,” he said. “And when we did ‘This Is Gonna Hurt’, there was a lot of inspiration that drew from the photography in my book ‘This Is Gonna Hurt’ as well as the bandmembers’ personal experiences and how they related not only to the characters in the book, but what they’d gone through growing up. Without meaning to, it hinted at this whole concept of bullying. If you’re different than other people you’re made fun of and you’re made to believe you’ll never achieve your dreams. Loosely, that’s what ‘This is Gonna Hurt’ was about. We feel like between ‘The Heroin Diaries’ and ‘This is Gonna Hurt’, we’ve exposed a lot of wounds and we’ve talked about how to recover from them, but we haven’t had a chance to really celebrate. I think this album is a celebration.”

Asked if SIXX: A.M. took a different approach to writing the songs this time around, Sixx said: “We put a lot fewer restrictions on ourselves. We went into genres that you wouldn’t expect us to possibly be influenced by, but unless you know the bandmembers, you don’t know that there are all kinds of influences, especially from the ’70s and some of the great bands that came out of that era. So when we started writing, it was almost ridiculous. The songs were so left of center that you’re like, ‘These could never be on a record.’ We were creating something so different, and once we got the songs written, people said, ‘God, it reminds me of QUEEN‘s ‘Night At The Opera’ at times. It reminds me of EDGAR WINTER GROUP ‘Free Ride’ and these amazing things off of ‘They Only Come Out At Night’. There was still the drama and the texture that SIXX: A.M. brings, but there was this celebration happening. Then as we started layering in the guitars, bass, drums and vocals, you started to go, ‘Wow, this is a SIXX: A.M. album!’ But it started out as not.”

Sixx also spoke about whether he is concerned that the musical diversions won’t appeal to fans of the first two SIXX: A.M. albums.

“I think SIXX: A.M. fans are going to love this record and I think new people will come in and be really surprised by it and become fans as well,” he said. “I don’t think our first two records sound like the same type of record, but I do think there’s a sound with the band and I think we’re going to continue on that tradition.”

SIXX: A.M., made a rare appearance — its first in four years — on April 11, 2012 at Revolver Golden Gods Awards at Club Nokia in Los Angeles.

As each band member has been kept busy with their other careers — Sixx is also the bassist for MÖTLEY CRÜE and a syndicated radio host; Ashba is currently touring with GUNS N’ ROSES; James Michael is a famed rock producer who is currently working on new records for PAPA ROACH, HALESTORM and others — this marked the band’s first chance to perform in support of their current album, “This Is Gonna Hurt”, which supplied the #1 rock anthem “Lies Of The Beautiful People”.

“7″, the latest EP from SIXX: A.M., came out in December 2011 and sold around 2,700 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The effort contained acoustic versions of songs from the group’s first two albums — 2007′s “The Heroin Diaries” soundtrack and 2011′s “This Is Gonna Hurt”.

Released on May 3, 2011, SIXX: A.M.‘s sophomore album, “This Is Gonna Hurt” is a companion piece to Sixx‘s “This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography And Life Through The Distorted Lens Of Nikki Sixx” book, a follow-up to his New York Times bestseller, “The Heroin Diaries”.

Fan-filmed video footage of MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s September 22 concert in Las Vegas as part of the band’s second residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino can be seen below.

The fall shows, dubbed “Evening In Hell”, are an all-new production and the band is pushing its own envelope once again. The production was designed exclusively for The Joint in partnership with AEG Live and sees the band performing in front of just 4,000 people per show max, a far cry from the arenas MÖTLEY CRÜE is accustomed to playing.

“There is no show like this. There never has been, and there never will be,” MÖTLEY CRÜE lead singer Vince Neil told Robin Leach of the Las Vegas Sun. “You’ve seen video fire from other rock acts on tour, but never the real thing.”

Vince continued: “It’s more than any rock group has ever produced or attempted. It really is entering the depths of hell. There’s fire all around and fire coming down from above.

“There’s no question this is the most dangerous theatrics ever created and far more than anything we expected. But, hey, this is Vegas, and we do bigger, bolder, badder, sleazier here better than any other place on Earth.

“We have the best fire tech experts in the world. This is so over the top, the only thing cool is what we do! Basically, we’re setting everything on fire in a way that’s never been done before.”

Vince also spoke about the challenge of singing nonstop for 90 minutes. “I don’t get one break,” he told the Las Vegas Sun. “We start with a song from when we began 30 years ago. We’ve reached back over the years to old hits to match up with new hits. It’s a difficult setlist for me vocally — ‘Too Young To Fall In Love’ is no easy song to perform.”

Rivers of Nihil has unveiled a second track from upcoming album, “The Conscious Seed of Light.” The brand new song, “Soil & Seed,” is streaming at Stereokiller.com here . Bassist Adam Biggs elaborates on the track: “Soil & Seed was one of the first songs we wrote for the record and it’s been a staple of our live set ever since. We wrote this one for two reasons; to outline the interconnectedness of the earth and all living creatures, and to get people to headbang and stomp around like fucking maniacs.

MÖTLEY CRÜE kicked off its second residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas this past Wednesday night (September 18).

Fan-filmed video footage of the second concert of the residency — which took place last night (Friday, September 20) — can be seen below.
