Seattle’s SINKING SHIPS Revelation debut LP/CD, Disconnecting, is a look at the trials and tribulations
that we go through in everyday life. Weaving elements of melody and hard edge riffs, SINKING SHIPS
are creating a sound all their own, somewhere between the familiar echoes of hardcore bands such as
BANE and IN MY EYES, but making their own unique, morose overtones a distinctly new addition to this
Calling the greater northwest their home, SINKING SHIPS are five friends that all had a vision to bring
something new to an old sound. The rhythm section gives the aggressive feel from past acts such as CHAIN
OF STRENGTH and a melodic nod to Louisville’s BY THE GRACE OF GOD. SINKING SHIPS then take it a
step further, adding guitar melodies reminiscent of AVAIL or even STRIKE ANYWHERE.
Never settling for less, Disconnecting is a record that grabs and challenges the listener to search for
something more in their music. It’s been a while since 7 SECONDS reminded people that the message is
as important as the music, and that sentiment resounds within this record. SINKING SHIPS have carved
their own niche into the punk/hardcore realm, and it won’t be long until this sound is lauded as one of
the most unique to date. Climb aboard…
