Following five years away, The Rapture are back with new live plans.
The New York band will perform at the Music Hall of Williamsburg on 30th April, and Long Beach music festival Just Like Heaven – alongside MGMT, Phoenix, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and more – on 4th May.
“So it’s been a long time since The Rapture did anything,” says the band’s Luke Jenner on Facebook. “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.”
The Rapture’s most recent album, ‘In the Grace of Your Love’ came out in 2011.
