    New York City's the Rapture and retro dance-rockers Shiny Toy Guns are teaming up to take a disco punk dance party across the United States this spring and summer. The Rapture will also be making a stop at the Coachella Festival on April 28th, and playing some opening dates for Daft Punk in late July and early August.

    Best known for their dance-punk hit "House of Jealous Lovers," the Rapture's latest album, the generally well-received Pieces of the People We Love, was released in September 2006.
