They released their debut album Everything Touching on 8 October 2012 via Blood and Biscuits/Big Scary Monsters. The band received notable airplay from Huw Stevens and Zane Lowe at the BBC, and headlined the BBC Introducing Stage at the Reading and Leeds Festivals in 2012. Whilst touring their debut album, they enlisted producer James Elliot Field as an additional live member. Previously a member of Big Scary Monsters-signed Tubelord, he soon became a permanent member of the band. On 26 September 2017, Tall Ships announced their disbandment via social media and performed 3 farewell shows across England in Bristol, Leeds and London, which took place 14-16 December of the same year. Bassist Matt Parker had previously stated in March 2017 that the band "started writing the third record and that’s gonna be a quick turnaround, we wanna make sure that its out super-quick!

Everything Touching ‎(LP, Album). Big Scary Monsters, Blood And Biscuits.

Album: Everything Touching.

Brighton-based outfit Tall Ships release their autumn debut 'Everything Touching' after busy summer of festival action. The trio have released a couple of EPs over the past few years, creating some interest in their eloquent melodies and elongated vocals. They've been branded as a 'math-rock' act but only scattered elements of that actually have the description to fit that label. It wouldn't be fair to designate one dominant genre to Tall Ships. The album title may seem a bit dramatic and touchy-feely, but it's quite clever

Your average Casanova wouldn’t dream of scouring Charles Darwin’s Origin of the Species when going a-wooing, but that Tall Ships can turn biological theory into heartfelt sentiment is testament to their off-kilter majesty. Elsewhere, opener T 0 is a riot of raggedy hi-hats and skew-whiff guitars reminiscent of Battles running on super-charged petroleum, while Phosphorescence is wonderfully herky-jerky fare which celebrates the flash-gun brightness of giddy lust
