Tall Ships Announce New Album Tracklisting and Tour Dates
Tall Ships have unveiled more information about their forthcoming debut album, ‘Everything Touching’, including the tracklisting and artwork. They have also just been added to top of the bill on the BBC Introducing stage at this years Reading & Leeds festival.
Recorded in Bovey Tracey, Devon with Jamie Field and mastered by Jeff Lipton (Battles, Bon Iver, Arcade Fire), the album features recent single T=0 alongside the forthcoming single, Gallop, as well as re-worked and re-recorded versions of old EP tracks Books and Ode To Ancestors. The inclusion of recent live favourites Phosphorescence and Oscar will also excite the bands quickly expanding fanbase, making this one of the most highly anticipated British debut albums of the year.
Following on from the release of ‘T=0’, which came with beautiful handcrafted artwork designed by the band’s visual artist Harriet Bridgewater, Tall Ships toured the UK and Europe with Los Campesinos!, Dry the River and Maps&Atlases. They also played a string of festival dates, including two oversubscribed nights at Great Escape, resulting in queues around the block.
Tall Ships, originally from Falmouth but now living in Brighton, have been drumming up a lot of love for their intricate mix of angular pop and beautiful, layered soundscapes that creates music which has drawn favourable comparisons to the likes of Battles, Minus The Bear, Sigur Rós and Biffy Clyro.
