Everything You Need to Know About the New Album From The Rapture
The Rapture made a pretty big splash in the aughts. They may not have been at the vanguard of the disco-punk resurgence, but their 2003 album Echoes is almost certainly considered the quintessential record from that era. Their follow-up, 2006’s Pieces of the People We Love, though a perfectly enjoyable sophomore record, didn’t quite have the same impact. Perhaps as a result of that disappointing reception, the Rapture have been awfully quiet over the last five years.
Well, the Rapture intend to get a whole lot louder in 2011. On September 6th, DFA Records will release In the Grace of Your Love, an eleven-track opus featuring frontman Luke Jenner’s father surfing on the cover. You can check out a DFA Whiteout Session for first single, “How Deep Is Your Love?”, here, and if it’s an accurate bellwether of the music contained on In the Grace of Your Love, then it would seem the Rapture have ditched their punk leanings and gone full tilt into disco. And so far, the results seem tremendously entertaining. In the Grace of Your Love tracklist and the Rapture tour dates are below.
