For a while there it seemed as though Pretty Vicious were lost to us, a case of too much too soon.
With those impeccable early shows finding major labels banging on their door, the band's rapid rise and sudden disappearance seemed to represent one of the music industry's darker moments.
Yet they persevered. Far too strong-willed to let those kind of politics derail their fantasies, Pretty Vicious pushed aside the obstacles in their way, finding a new path in the process.
2019 promises to be a stunning year for the band, with their debut album set to be released on Big Machine/John Varvatos Records.
We're able to share the striking video for new single 'Are You Entertained?' and it's a bold, brash return, shot in stylish monochrome.
Directed by Benn Veasey, it perfectly matches Pretty Vicious' immediate approach, their dogged determination, and their bloody-minded independence.
Pretty Vicious comment: ‘“It’s a song about teenage exuberance and rebellion... the feeling of invincibility and a big ‘F*** You to the world.”
