The Rapture

Having released their first post-hiatus album, ‘In The Grace Of Your Love’, earlier this year, The Rapture will be stopping by for a two-date UK jaunt next May. But wait, there’s more, because the band are also set to play an exclusive interactive London show on 12 Dec.

Presented by Dell, Intel and Vice Magazine’s joint live venture, Noisey, as part of their Special Engagement Concert Series, fans will get the chance to choose the band’s encore track, design merchandise for their new single ‘Sail Away’, and even join them on stage. The entire set will be streamed live on the Noisey website. Details on how to secure entry to that show, which goes off at Rowan’s Bowling Alley in Finsbury Park, can be found here.

Say The Rapture, in sweet and perfect unison: “Thanks to Noisey, we feel quite lucky to engage in far reaching ways to fans all over the world. This sounds like it should be a damn good concert”.

Meanwhile, here are the regular old 2012 dates:

1 May: Oxford, Academy
2 May: London, Shepherd’s Bush Empire
