by Rapture Ruckus | Genre: Electronic/Dance | Release Date: January 12, 2018

Rapture Ruckus' new EP is a concept album based off the new William Hawk sic-fi novel, 'Ignition.'

"After meeting William about a year ago, he shared how our record 'Invader Vol 2' had inspired him in the writing of this book series he was working on and wanted to know if we'd be open to writing some music to go with the book," said lead singer Brad Dring. "After reading the story we felt like it was something we needed and wanted to do."

Igniting a Sci-Fi Epic | Posted March 05, 2018
Rapture Ruckus' Ignition EP has an unusual backstory. After finding out that Sci-Fi writer William Hawke had been inspired by Rapture Ruckus' album Invader Vol. 2, the band agreed to write a concept EP to go along with Hawke's new novel Ignition. Stocked with signature rap rock sounds and deceivingly deep lyrics, the EP of the same name is here.
What It Sounds Like:
Ignition EP is sonically (and happily) exactly what Ruckus fans would expect. It's filled with synth hooks that drop into big rock sounding choruses, and the lyrics are smooth at every turn. Brad Dring's singing and rapping are truly on point throughout.
Spiritual Highlights:
As mentioned above, this is a theme album for a Sci-Fi book, and as a result Ignition EP is thematically different than much of Rapture Ruckus' previous work. The lyrics aren't as overtly spiritual, but there are many poignant references to real world issues--for example "Checking on the status quo / A million followers but he's still alone" on "Proof Of Life." However, it must be mentioned that there is mild profanity on the song "Fictional" with the line "Get yourself together / get your a** into gear," so proceed with caution if necessary.
Best Song On The Record:
"Proof Of Life" is a showcase for Brad's rapping, all wrapped around a catchy synth line that knits the song together.  It's also lyrically deep with themes that certainly complement the book it was written to accompany while it also speaks to the realities of every day life in 2018 through references to both school shootings and the place of social media in our lives.
For Fans Of:
NF, Lecrae, Linkin Park
Final Word:
Though thematically different than their most recent work, Ignition EP is classic Rapture Ruckus, the lyrical caveat on "Fictional" not withstanding.
Listen on Spotify or iTunes.
