The Rapture

Biography

Guitarist Luke Jenner and drummer Vito Roccoforte began playing together as the Rapture in 1998, moving from a 'burb of San Diego to San Francisco and, eventually, New York City. New York was where the band fit best; its debut LP, Mirror, ushered in the city's millennial fascination with disco-touched, danceable post-punk. After a revolving-door cast of sidemen, the Rapture eventually settled on bassist Matt Safer, who appeared on their 2001 Sub Pop-issued debut EP, Out of the Races and Onto the Tracks. After releasing 2002's "House of Jealous Lovers" single, they added multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Andruzzi to the lineup and went to work on the 2003 full-length Echoes. After wide touring and a small break, Pieces of the People We Love arrived in 2006. It was the band's debut on a major label, Mercury, and they pulled out all the stops, bringing in a host of producers that included Danger Mouse and choppering in Gnarls Barkley supervocalist Cee-Lo for backups.
