“Take Me Down” has already recently claimed the No.1 spot on the Rock Radio Chart following singles “Heaven Knows” and “Messed Up World,” which were featured on their sophomore album Going To Hell.
According to the band’s Facebook page, “Take Me Down” is a story of desperation, with Momsen delivering such lyrics as “I spend all night and day / How much harder can I play? / You know I gave my life to rock and roll?”
“It’s about wanting something so much you’d sell your soul for it,” Momsen says, adding that she and Phillips were inspired by blues artist Robert Johnson’s song “Crossroads,” which some have interpreted as Johnson singing about selling his soul to the Devil in exchange for his musical ability.
“Take Me Down” is off of the band’s upcoming third album Who You Selling For which will be released on October 21st via Razor & Tie, but you can pre-order the album HERE.
