The Rapture are back along with Canadian dance-disco quartet Azari & III for Australian tour dates on the back of their appearance on the Future Music Festival 2012 line-up in March.
If dance punk floats your boat, then NYC’s The Rapture is what you need. Formed in 1998, this groundbreaking, pioneering act have kindly given the planet four epic albums including latest album In The Grace Of Your Love. Featuring the skills of Luke Jenner, Vito Roccoforte and Gabriel Andruzzi, The Rapture are revered for their innate ability to effortlessly meld their punk roots with electronic and dance elements to create a sound that is all their very own.
Azari & III features the talents of Alixander III and Dinamo Azari, who last came to Australia on a whistle-stop tour and performed during the Vivid Festival 2011. Hitting the world between the eyes with singles like Hungry For The Power and Reckless (With Your Love), they have since been a much-loved mainstay of the planet’s finest clubs and biggest festival stages. The quartet will also release a deluxe digital version of their album on February 10th.
