Biography

Jumping Ships are an Alt Rock Quartet based in Brighton who have been together for a year and a half. In their short time together they have toured the UK three times and have played shows for The Great Escape, BBC Introducing, Club NME, Leftfield Glastonbury and Rock Against Racism; supporting bands such as Biffy Clyro, Bombay Bicycle Club, Flood of Red, General Fiasco and The Most Serene Republic.

Festival highlights of this year for the band included White Air Festival and Southsea Festival.

Upon formation the band started writing, recording and self producing a two track single entitled ‘Liberty Row’. This single caught the attention of BBC Introducing Guru’s Tom Robinson and Steve Lamacq who both playlisted the track. The single also attracted interest from Brighton Electric Studios (Foals/Maccabees/Blood Red Shoes) who offered the band a chance to record a debut album. The album entitled ‘Orientation’ is in final mixing stages and is set to be released in early 2010.

In October the band released a limited edition single entitled ‘The Bad Outweighed The Good’ which they promoted with a month long UK tour. The single also secured them high profile endorsements with; Hi-Watt, Ernie Ball and Jim Dunlop. A portion of the limited editions were kept, and one has been included within.

    Hey guys, greetings from Germany. Just wanted to say, I love what you're doing. I've yet to hear a song that I didn't like. Thought you'd like to know that you have at least one fan in Germany already! Okay, I happen to know your drummers brother, that's how I stumbled onto you in first place, but I like to think that I found you guys all by myself. ;) Sadly last.fm doesn't let me scrobble your music for some reason, but I'm listening! ;)
