Of all the Banshees albums, their final The Rapture is their most wildly schizophrenic and arguably their most ambitious. Half of the album was produced by Velvet Underground alumnus and art rock pioneer John Cale, while the band took control of the rest. The 11th and final studio album from Siouxsie and the Banshees – The Rapture was also as fresh and innovative as the first. How the Banshees are able to remain vital and celebrated after almost two decades is down to their ever evolving and metamorphic spirit.
2LP - Remastered from the original ¼” tapes and cut at half speed at Abbey Road studios, London. Both artwork and audio have personally been overseen and orchestrated by Siouxsie Sioux and Steven Severin. Only ever released on Gatefold Double vinyl outside of the UK, The Rapture’s artwork has been reimagined and designed to rightly reflect this final Banshees offering.
