The Rapture are to play a free show at London's 100 Club next week.

The band, who released their third album 'In The Grace Of Your Love' on September 5 this year, will headline the venue on November 1. Support at the show will come from YACHT and Prinzhorn Dance School.

The show is the fifth in the run of specially-curated shows borne out of the sponsorship deal with Converse that saved the venue from closure. Previous acts to have played the free shows have included Graham Coxon, Little Roy, Fanfarlo and Everything Everything.

Tickets are free and available exclusively through Converse.co.uk and Schuh.co.uk/competitions.

The Rapture begin a six-date UK tour tomorrow night (October 27) at Bristol's Thekla. They will then tour the country, playing shows in Leeds, Coventry, Glasgow and a further London date at the KOKO venue. The tour ends when they headline Brighton's Coalition on November 3.
