Biografie

T he Rapture are an American rock band formed in San Francisco. The band mixes influences of post-punk, dance-punk, acid house, disco, electronica, and more.

The Rapture formed in 1998 by drummer Vito Roccoforte and guitarist/vocalist Luke Jenner. After relocating to New York, the original bassist left and was replaced by Matt Safer. The band toured extensively and in 2001 released the six-song EP Out of the Races and Onto the Tracks on Sub Pop Records. The Rapture were forerunners of the post-punk revival that was taking place in the early 2000s. Multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Andruzzi joined the band in 2002. Their first full-length record, Echoes, was released to critical acclaim in 2003.

In January 2004, the Rapture acted as main support to Funeral for a Friend on the NME Awards Tour, alongside other burgeoning acts Franz Ferdinand and The Von Bondies. Later that year, the band toured on the main stage of the Curiosa Festival alongside Interpol, Scarling, Mogwai, Cursive, The Cooper Temple Clause, Head Automatica, and their own idols, The Cure.

The Rapture announced the completion of their second full-length album, Pieces Of The People We Love, which was released on Universal Motown Records in September 2006. Paul Epworth, Ewan Pearson and Danger Mouse produced the album.
