'Pretenders II’ is the follow-up to the band’s self-titled debut. The band was touring and cementing their popularity, especially the popularity of their lead singer. The album would be the final release from the original lineup of the band, as shortly afterwards the band would be fractured by the drug abuse that would take the life of guitarist James Honeyman-Scott, leading to a long recording hiatus. Twenty years after its release, it was certified gold (500,000 sold) in 2001.
