The Rapture Announces U.S. Tour Dates (New Album Out 9/6 via DFA)


“…classic Chicago house piano line accentuating a percolating disco groove that never lets up even when it breaks down to hand claps and nothing else… if it took the Rapture five years to make a track like this, then it was time well-spent. “
 - Pitchfork, Best New Music

– Rolling Stone, Hot List

The Rapture recently shared “How Deep Is Your Love?,” the first album track from In The Grace Of Your Love, along with Emperor Machine’s remix of the track via Adult Swim (downloads for both below!). Now, we’re excited to share the news of The Rapture’s first full U.S. tour in support of the album, which will see them on the road from late September through October!

 
The band has set the bar high with the first track, but this is just the beginning.  Produced by Philippe Zdar (Phoenix, Beastie Boys, Chromeo), the writing and recording process for In The Grace Of Your Love connected the band back to why they started playing music in the first place. Drummer Vito Roccoforte explains that they “focused on the process more than the results. We approached the album in a fearless manner, with nothing to lose.” By recapturing the fun and love for the process, the results were definitely a win.
