Ships Have Sailed

Leave your mark on the world

Ships Have Sailed“Ships Have Sailed is the rare case of a band name embodying its sound. Their melodies soar effortlessly and their inspired, rounded resonance reminds me of 90s alt-rock bands that have since gone out to sea; Something Corporate or mainstream Christian rock power players, Hillsong United.”

– Earmilk

Since their inception, Ships Have Sailed have always struck a balance between exuberant pop and substantial alternative rock. Their 2014 debut EP Someday was essentially a soft launch for the band that picked up traction organically; receiving heavy airplay on College, NPR and Commercial radio in the US and Canada. Later that year the band toured the Northeastern US and, in 2015, performed showcases at SXSW, CMJ Music Marathon, Canadian Music Week, & NAMM. They also took home accolades from ISC, Unsigned Only and The John Lennon Songwriting Competition.

2015 also saw the release of their first full length album Moodswings – a reflection on how the present is impacted by all other moments in time and how any sort of change can alter the trajectory of one’s life. The LP received glowing reviews from Blackbook, Wild Honey Pie, and The 405 and spawned a sister release Re:Mix whose tropical house remixes seemed in perfect step with the evolving music climate.

Ships Have Sailed’s new acoustic EP Whispers was released on May 13, 2016.  After touring up and down the west coast for much of the summer, Ships is embarking on an east coast tour in early November.
