The Rapture

Once hailed by some writers as the second coming of Gang of Four, the Rapture were the flagship band of the post-punk revival that swept through the indie underground during the early 2000s. Formed in 1998 by New Yorkers Vito Roccoforte (drums) and Luke Jenner (guitars, vocals), the band toured heavily before releasing a mini-album, Mirror, in 1999. More shows with the likes of Sunny Day Real Estate and Nuzzle followed; meanwhile, a string of bassists and keyboard players cycled through the lineup, with Jenner and Roccoforte serving as the only two permanent members. Bassist Matt Safer, who had recently moved from Washington, D.C., officially joined the band in time for Out of the Races and Onto the Tracks, a six-song EP released by Sub Pop in 2001. Gabriel Andruzzi was added to the lineup one year later, handling the keyboard parts that had become integral to the Rapture's blend of post-punk aesthetics and dance rhythms.

The Rapture's profile increased with the release of "House of Jealous Lovers" in 2003. The song had been recorded with help from the DFA production team, who added heavy electronics to the band's sound, and its popularity convinced the Rapture to continue working with DFA on a full-length album. The result was Echoes, which was released in late 2003 and spawned two Top 40 singles in the U.K. Its follow-up, Pieces of the People We Love, was released three years later by Mercury and involved production input from Ewan Pearson, Danger Mouse, and Paul Epworth. Tapes, a stylistically broad mix album, came out through !K7 in 2008. Safer left the following year and it would be two more years before the band would release another studio album. In the Grace of Your Love, issued in 2011, saw their return to the DFA label, with Andruzzi filling in on bass. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi

It seems like the only side effect to listening to this band other than impromptu dancing is that you won't be able to spell correctly for the duration of the song being played. :)))

one of those bands you just want to jump up and start dancing getting ready to go see what you can get into pumped up just to be out and about makes you want to dance different then you would almost like your another person lol
Love them, Echoes and Pieces have two very different sounds, both very good but I kind of prefer the dirtier sound of Echoes, its closer to their classic stuff. Hope a new album comes out soon.
The Pop Song sounds a lot like Flipper. Not many bands sound like Flipper.
The Mirror EP was originally recorded by Mike Vermillion of Gogogo Airheart.
these guys freakin rule! so fun do dance to...
one of those bands that make me feel like i should be annoyed by his voice but i'm just not. so kickass

Saw them with Daft Punk at Red Rock...a while back...prett y nice
Lame a** wannabes.
I saw these guys way back in 2000 in the basement of the Grand Forks, ND American Legion with Enemymine or enimymine on here. There was maybe 40 people there and someone was having a wedding dance upstairs in the same place and the bands were so loud it totally ruined the wedding dance. Rock On!

People in my office think I'm crazy.
Hopefully they can get no sex for ben on here. Great single off the GTA 4 soundtrack.
What the hell is this? I'm addicted to it
i saw these guys at the che cafe on the usc campus in '99 and they sucked and freaked the crowd out cuz luke jenner was swinging his guitar at everybody! then he told us he wouldn't hurt us, and to come closer. needless to say, we were hesitant. i really like their new stuph - they've seriously come along way!
