The Pretty Reckless will be pushing back their new studio album, Death By Rock And Roll, to 2021 in large part due to the ongoing coronavirus.

Taylor Momsen said in a new interview on the Darryl Talks to Bands podcast, “It’s very weird to release music and not be able to back it up with a tour — the circle doesn’t feel complete until you get to play the songs live. So it’s a very strange time. I think we’re doing the same thing that a lot of bands are doing — we’re just kind of waiting and observing and trying to see where this is gonna go; these are such unprecedented times.

Momsen continued, “So it’s kind of a little bit of a waiting game right now, so we don’t have a specific release date. But I couldn’t wait forever to put out music, hence the first single. We continued with that plan. And there’s gonna be many more singles before the full album, so there’s gonna be much more music coming your way — just not the full shebang till a little bit later.”

The album will be TPR’s fourth studio release and the follow-up to their 2016 album Who You Selling For. So far, only the title track has been released and is available for streaming and download here
