Rapture Ruckus – ‘Ignition EP’ album review

Rapture Ruckus, CCM Magazine - imageRapture Ruckus is back with an all-new EP inspired by and for the science-fiction novel Ignition (buy) by William Hawk. Yes, it’s a rarity to have a soundtrack companion to a book, but to us, that makes a lot of sense—it’s a lot easier to listen to a record while reading vs. watching a movie, right? Additionally, it seems to work for front man and lead creative Brad Dring, as this 5-song short set soars above some of Ruckus’ previous, more youth-groupy sounding releases. With an added depth both musically and lyrically, the EP (which shares the same name as the novel) is both grit and pop, rock and hip hop—incorporating everything we already love about Dring & Co. Only thing left to do now? Experiencing these songs performed live on the moon (or even Mars, perhaps?), we think the guys would be “up” for it.
