The Rapture are a hugely popular and influential New York based dance-punk band from New York. Their early post-punk sound was honed when they hooked up with the famed production team DFA, who applied elements of electronic dance music to their music, with incredible results. They released their first full-length album ‘Echoes’ via DFA in 2003 to massive critical acclaim and commercial success. Their follow-up album in 2006, ‘Pieces of the People We Love’, was released through Universal Motown, and was produced by Paul Epworth, Ewan Pearson and Danger Mouse. Their appeal to both the indie and dance crowds was well demonstrated in their support of The Killers when they played Brixton Academy in November 2006, and Daft Punk when they toured the US in 2007. They made a live appearance at the legendary Trash night here at The End in 2003, just before their popularity soared and they became a household name.
