Translation Loss Records signs CITY OF SHIPS and co-release new record!

Translation Loss Records are extremely excited to announce the addition of Richmond, VA’s CITY OF SHIPS to their roster!  

CITY OF SHIPS has been touring relentlessly since its inception in 2005, promoting self-released EPs as well as CD and Vinyl releases from independent Richmond, VA labels Forcefield Records and the Perpetual Motion Machine. The trio will embark on an extensive European tour this summer, first with label mates Rosetta and later joining The End Records’ Braveyoung (previously named Giant, from NC). In addition, the band is currently booking a run of East Coast US dates with Liquid Limbs happening late May through mid-June.


Look What God Did to Us” is CITY OF SHIPS’ first release with Translation Loss. The album will be co-released with indie label Sound Study Recordings from Gainesville, FL. Translation Loss will take charge of the CD release (expecting a mid-late summer release) while Sound Study will handle the vinyl and digital versions for this remarkable 10 song full-length debut. Both record labels are intensely passionate about the band’s music and look forward to helping present CITY OF SHIPS to the world. For more information on Sound Study Recordings, please visit:  

Drew Juergens from Translation Loss on the signing and co-release:

“I could not be more excited about working with CITY OF SHIPS. Ever since I heard their tour EP and saw them live, I knew they were destined to create greatness. The new record is absolutely amazing and will take the world by surprise with its intrinsic groove and the jaw-dropping musicianship it presents.”

 CITY OF SHIPS’ Translation Loss debut entitled “Look What God Did to Us” was tracked and mixed over two sessions in February and March of this year with producer Andrew Schneider at Translator Audio (Pelican, Made Out of Babies, Unsane) in Brooklyn, NY and will be mastered by Nick Zampiello at New Alliance East in Boston.
