BEC RECORDINGS INKS PARTNERSHIP WITH NEW ZEALAND’S PARACHUTE MUSIC TO BRING RAPTURE RUCKUS TO THE STATES
Always on the hunt to bring new talent to their fans, BEC Recordings is partnering with New Zealand based Parachute Music to introduce the music of Rapture Ruckus to the United States in June 8, 2010. Rapture Ruckus will release their fourth project, which includes songs recorded in Nashville, TN with industry-maven Joe Baldrige (DC Talk, Family Force 5), as a part of the BEC Recordings’ partnership.

Fronted by MC Rapture (Brad Dring), Rapture Ruckus craft an arresting, original fuse of Rock laden Hip Hop, with heavy guitars and slick pop sensibilities. Honing a tight stage show over the past eight years, the band dazzles with big production and a live show that is most at home under the flashing lights of festivals and stadiums. Rapture Ruckus debuted in 2002 at New Zealand’s Parachute Festival (one of the largest music festivals in the Southern Hemisphere) breaking the event’s record for highest-selling new act. Owning the stage like veterans, their slamming show propelled Parachute Music to instantly sign the act, and they have since become a key headliner of the 25,000-strong festival.

Rapture Ruckus has continued touring, supporting bands throughout North America, Europe, Africa and Asia. Already releasing three albums since their 2002 debut, and winning the 2007 New Zealand Music Award for Best Gospel Album, Rapture Ruckus is thrilled to bring their music to the United States via BEC Recordings. MC Rapture spits out gritty, honest lyrics, covering his redemption story from a broken home and substance abuse problems to an uncompromising confidence in Christ. The songs are instantly infectious (their sophomore album garnering the band five No. 1 singles), and Rapture Ruckus rile the crowd until everyone is chanting along, or at least waving their arms with the Hip Hop salute.

Rapture Ruckus releases on June 8th, 2010.

Tracklisting:
1. No Matter What
2. Tonight
3. Hold On
4. All Things New
5. I Believe
6. All We Got
