The Rapture have created their own label, Throne of Blood*.† The ToB label will focus on vinyl releases and will be managed by the Rapture and DJ James Friedman.
(*Not to be confused with metal band Throne of Blood who sound like if you take bands like Hatebreed, Meshuggah, Lamb of God, Cannibal Corpse and wad all†those†fuckers up into a big ass ball.† WRAH!)
