Pretty Reckless fans stoked about the band's upcoming U.S. spring tour can whet their appetite with video footage from their TV appearance last night on 'Conan.' The chart-topping New York alt-rockers punched out their single 'Take Me Down,' which hit No. 1 on Billboard's Rock Chart upon its release last summer.

Blabbermouth reports on March 1 the “Heaven Knows” hitmakers treated the popular TBS late night talk show's studio audience to a pumped up 4:08 minute version of the song. “Take Me Down” is the lead single from Taylor Momsen and company's third studio Who You Selling For, which hit shelves Oct. 21, 2016 via Razor & Tie.

Backed by an imported three-piece vocal harmony section for the national TV appearance, the ex-Gossip Girl star leads the band through a crunching live performance of the “Sympathy for the  Devil” inspired track and oozes rock star cool as she launches into the first verse, singing, "Waiting at these crossroads/Forever and a day/On a guy/To buy/My soul."

Who You Selling For is available in here CD, vinyl and digital formats. Fans can check out footage from the 'Conan' show performance above.

The Pretty Reckless released an official video for their follow up single “Oh My God” last month. The band recently announced they will team with Soundgarden for select dates on the grunge pioneer's upcoming spring tour, which kicks off April 28 in Tampa, Florida, at Amalie Arena.

The Pretty Reckless will launch their headlining 2017 world tour with dates in South America, Mexico, North America, Europe and the U.K. The first leg kicks off March 7 in Curitiba, Brazil, at Teatro Positivo and wraps up March 18 in Mexico City as part of the 2017 line up of  Vive Latino Festival.

Their U.S. spring romp begins with a sold out show April 25 in Boston at Paradise Rock Club. The cross-country trek will include numerous festivals before wrapping up May 27 in San Antonio, Texas, at AT&T Centeas part of  River City Rock Fest.
