The Rapture announce US tour, but what does it mean for you as a homeowner? Find out within!

Nearly 10 years ago, The Rapture envisioned a scene horrifying to any American home owner: a house occupied entirely by jealous lovers. How would all these jealous lovers affect the equity? Or the assessed value? Or a third real estate term that I know nothing about? Regardless, the thought of all these jealous lovers and their exchange of hands has long chilled me to the bone. Somehow, The Rapture have managed to move on from their frightening future vision. They’re even going on a big US tour, which begins next month. Well, actually, I guess it begins at the end of this month, with a single show in New York City. But a month shall pass between that date and the next, so the word “begins” in that context means as much as the phrase “subordinate financing” means to me in any context. By the way, thank you, list of real estate terminology.

While The Rapture will surely play — shudder — “House of Jealous Lovers” and plenty of other classics, they will also surely be playing plenty off forthcoming new record In The Grace of Your Love. That particular record marks their return to the DFA label and comes out September 6. First single “How Deep Is Your Love” has been kicking around the internet for a second and you can download it right here, as long as you’re willing to part with an email address. Actually, I guess you get to keep the address, but you know what I mean.
