Whoo! Alright – Yeah… Uh Huh: The Rapture Are Back (Two Days Late)

Presumably they were just waiting a couple of days to make sure that, y’know, the whole biblical Rapture thing hadn’t actually happened, but in 100% true and verifiable news, NY dance-punk forefathers The Rapture have announced their return.

The Rapture

Their new album will be entitled In The Grace Of Your Love and will be released in the UK on September 5th, and on September 6th in the US and the rest of the world. The new album sees them returning to DFA Records, and according to NME.com, the tracklisting looks a bit like this:

‘Sail Away’
‘Miss You’
‘Blue Bird’
‘Come Back To Me’
‘In the Grace of Your Love’
‘Never Gonna Die Again’
‘Roller Coaster’
‘Can You Find A Way?’
‘How Deep Is Your Love?’
‘It Takes Time To Be A Man’

I’m going to assume that ‘How Deep Is Your Love?’ isn’t a Bee Gees cover. Also, Artrocker has listed some European shows for the band, conveniently happening around the release of the album. The dates are as follows:

August 2011:

27th – FRANCE, Cabaret Vert Festival, Charleville Meziere
28th – SWITZERLAND, Vevey, Rocking Chair
30th – HOLLAND, Amsterdam, Melkweg
31st – BELGIUM, Antwerp, Trix

September 2011:

4th – JERSEY, Jersey Live Festival, St.Helens
5th – FRANCE, Paris, Maroquinerie
7th – UK, Manchester, Club Academy
8th – UK, London, XOYO
9th – GERMANY, Berlin Festival, Berlin

Tickets will be going on sale on the 27th May, which is this Friday. Stick it in your diaries.
