The Rapture in 2011 [via]
Following a half-decade hiatus, New York City’s own rockers The Rapture have announced their return with a just confirmed headlining show in Brooklyn in April, along with a just announced appearance at Long Beach, CA’s ‘Just Like Heaven Fest‘ (w/ Phoenix, MGMT, Yeah Yeah Yeahs + more) on May 4.
Here’s a statement from frontman Luke Jenner, posted earlier today via his Facebook.
So it’s been a long time since The Rapture did anything. It’s been this long gritty road trying to figure out how to be a father and a husband which seemed a lot more important than standing on stage in front of anyone. We went to therapy, we talked it out, it’s still a little weird, but I couldn’t do it if I didn’t feel like it was gonna be some kinda personal progress. Anyway, I hope there is a long future for us and we can build something new. Maybe you will join us someplace along the way again ❤️❤️❤️
Regarding the NYC show, it happens at Music Hall of Williamsburg on April 30, featuring support from Seedy Films, and a solo set by Luke Jenner. Get tickets starting this Friday (2/8) at 10am, HERE.
The Rapture‘s last release, In the Grace of Your Love, came out in 2011 via DFA.
We like you, will you like us?
