The Pretty Reckless Enjoy Devilish Studio Time in ‘Take Me Down’ Video
You may not see the devil, but his primary color is present throughout The Pretty Reckless' new video for "Take Me Down." The song is the lead single from the band's forthcoming album, Who You Selling For.
While the lyrics tell the tale of a person who has sold their soul at the crossroads in the name of rock and roll and boasts a repetitive backing vocal of "sign with the devil," the unholy one does not make an appearance in the clip. Rather, the "Take Me Down" video is a performance based clip with Taylor Momsen and her bandmates playing the track in the studio, with a subtle nod to the devil as his red is the only color featured outside of the black-and-white shot clip.
Meiert Avis directed the video, which found the band rocking the song at the Water Music Studios in Hoboken, N.J. where they recorded their album. The Who You Selling For album is on track for an Oct. 21 street date via Razor & Tie.
While the studio performance is an interesting watch, you can see The Pretty Reckless deliver the track live when they hit the road this fall. Their U.S. tour kicks off Oct. 20 in Tulsa, Okla. and wraps on Dec. 6 in Los Angeles. See all of their scheduled stops here.
