Safer Quits The Rapture

Indie rockers THE RAPTURE are on the hunt for a new bass player, after MATTIE SAFER quit the band.
Safer, who shared vocal duties with guitarist Luke Jenner, left the New York-based group in April (09), but his departure has only just been officially announced by his bandmates.
A blog on The Rapture's website reads, "We are sad to see him go but it seems it is the best for all of us."
But the group - comprising of Jenner, Vito Roccoforte, and Gabriel Andruzzi - is looking to the future of the band: "Since then Luke, Vito and I (Gabriel) have been on a creative tear. We’ve been working out of our little Brooklyn make shift studio, writing, demoing and jamming. I’m pretty damn excited to share the fruits of our labor with you. But it's still gonna be a minute before we hit the studio for real."
