The Rapture were always ahead of the curve.
The band were making funk-punk at a time when the dregs of the slacker movement were still dripping across American indie rock.
Absorbing house and techno influences, The Rapture's work with DFA virtually defined how to make dance music with guitars for a 21st century audience.
In true ambivalent style, the band seem to have split up without telling anyone. Frontman Luke Jenner was booked to appear at a Red Bull Music Academy event, billed as "formerly of The Rapture".
Doing some digging, self-titled mag asked the group's management for further information. "I kept thinking it might blow over," label manager Jonathan Galkin said, "but that might not be the case. Feel free to go to press with this headline: 'Did the Rapture Break Up and Not Tell Anyone?'"
