Maritime was formed in 2003 from the break up of The Promise Ring and The Dismemberment Plan. Eric Axelson of The Dismemberment Plan and Davey von Bohlen and Dan Didier of The Promise Ring started a band called In English. The group quickly signed a deal with the record label ANTI- and hired J. Robbins to produce their record. Robbins had previously produced records for both The Promise Ring and The Dismemberment Plan. After delivering the record to ANTI-, the company decided it did not want the record. The band changed its name to Maritime and signed with DeSoto Records. The band went on tour and self-released an EP called Adios on their own label, Foreign Leisure. On April 1, 2004, the band released its first full-length album, Glass Floor on Desoto Records. On February 6, 2006, Axelson announced that he was leaving the band. He was replaced on bass guitar by Justin Klug. Their second album, We, the Vehicles, was released on April 18, 2006, on Flameshovel Records to wide critical acclaim. Their third album, Heresy and the Hotel Choir, was released on October 16, 2007, also on Flameshovel Records in the US and was released on Grand Hotel van Cleef in Germany on October 12, 2007, who also released Maritime's other two albums in Europe. "Guns of Navarone" was the first single from the new album.
