The Rapture is a indie rock band based in New York City. The band mixes influences from many genres including post-punk, dance-punk, acid house, disco, electronica and rock. Released their second full-length album, Pieces of the People We Love, on Universal Motown Records in September 2006. Paul Epworth, Ewan Pearson and Danger Mouse produced the album. The new album displays a more polished and markedly less angular sound to their previous work, receiving a mixed critical reception.
The Rapture supported The Killers on the London leg of their tour at the Carling Academy Brixton from 26 November 2006 to 28 November 2006 and Daft Punk on the North American leg of their tour in 2007.
The song "Echoes" plays in a scene of the movie Superbad.
