The Rapture expand autumn 2011 UK tour- tickets on sale Friday 29th July
New York electro-punkers The Rapture have, in thirteen years, released just two full-length studio albums. In the band's first five years, they put out a handful of singles and a mini-album, 1999's 'Mirror', before their breakthrough came in 2003 with their first LP, 'Echoes'.
Like the follow-up, 2006's 'Pieces of the People We Love', 'Echoes' made the UK top 40 albums and helped make The Rapture a go-to band for soundtrack producers everywhere. Their songs have cropped up in numerous video games, TV shows and films including Grand Theft Auto IV, E4's 'Misfits', 'Gossip Girl' and in cult movie smash 'Superbad'.
Their song 'Whoo! Alright, Yeah...Uh Huh' is even the official anthem and walk-out music for MLS soccer team, the New York Red Bulls (where legendary handball cheat Thierry Henry draws his pension) [you hide your Spurs allegiance well, Stewart - Ed].
In five years since the last record, The Rapture have seen a bassist depart (Mattie Safer) and have been working on a new record, 'In The Grace of Your Love', which is set for release in Europe on 5th September.
The Rapture will be taking their new record and their soundtrack back catalogue on tour in the UK later this year with a series of new dates recently announced.
The first of the six additional autumn shows takes place in Bristol on 27th October, followed by gigs in Leeds, Coventry, Glasgow and London (KOKO), before the final show in Brighton on 3rd November.
We will have tickets for all dates from 9AM on Friday 29th July, priced £13.50 (£15 for London).
Ahead of the new dates, the band play two September shows - at the Manchester Academy (7th) and XOYO in London (8th). We have tickets for the Manchester gig available now, also priced £13.50. Face value tickets for the London XOYO date are now sold out.
