The Rapture


A New York trio who were formed in the 1990s and rose to worldwide acclaim the mid-2000s, The Rapture fuses a downtown, post-punk style with electronic technology and dance rhythms. After touring with Daft Punk in 2007, at the peak of their fame for the second album Pieces of People we Love, the band spent a couple of years in evolution as the line-up changed and life intervened. But loyal fans were finally rewarded: the band’s line-up is back to the original three (Luke Jenner, Vito Roccoforte and Gabriel Andruzzi) and a new Rapture album, In The Grace Of Your Love (DFA), finally arrived in the autumn. They’ll be touring it globally – with destinations in Europe, Japan, Australia and the Americas – throughout Spring 2012.
