BEC Recordings’ and New Zealand native Rapture Ruckus released their new digital EP, Invader Volume II, last Tuesday, January 27. Invader Volume II is the follow-up and second installment to last year’s release Invader Volume I. This second installment of Invader features the new song “Boomerang” as well as special guests remixes by David Thulin, Grapishsoda and Unikron. In March, both of these EPs will be made available in a special retail piece in one project and include the current radio single, “Volcano (feat. Jonathan Thulin),” which is currently charting Top 10 at Hot AC/CHR.
Last year Rapture Ruckus released their well-received EP, Invader Volume I, which debuted for the first time on U.S. Charts. The album debuted on Billboard Top 200 as well as in the Top 10 on the Billboard Christian Albums chart. Invader Volume I also received two GMA Dove Award nominations for “Rap/Hip-Hop Album of the Year “ and “Song of the Year” (“Head Held High”).
Invader Vol. I and II follow the highly successful 2011 release Open Your Eyes. 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. Rapture Ruckus has continued touring, supporting bands throughout North America, Europe, Africa and Asia. Rapture Ruckus released their music to the United States via BEC Recordings in 2010. The self-titled debut was nominated for a GMA Dove Award in “Rap/Hip-Hop Album of the Year” category.
