On Tour: Tall Ships

Big Scary Monsters currently house a plethora of intriguing and innovative math-rock bands and Brighton’s Tall Ships are undoubtedly one of the most accomplished and exciting of them all. Fusing Foals inspired guitar lines with the frenzied fervour of Battles, Tall Ships are razor-sharp and their new single ‘Hit The Floor’ finds the band deliver their most concentrated dose of blistering, brain-frazzling rock.

You can stream ‘Hit The Floor’ below and the 7″ release, limited to just 300 copies in screenprinted, hand-numbered sleeves, will be out via Big Scary Monsters/Blood And Biscuits on 13th June with iTunes coming early on 16th May, to coincide with their upcoming Three Trapped Tigers support tour.
