Abandon All Ships is the first release by Canadian metalcore band, Abandon All Ships. Recorded and produced in Toronto, Canada, that release on July 15, 2009, officially in Canada, on July 20 in US.

Release and promotion[edit]

The EP, being Abandon All Ship's first production, was criticized by many magazines in Canada and the US principally by their style, eurodance and metalcore. However, the first song "Pedestrians Is Another Word for Speedbump" and "Megawacko" along with the other songs were the basis for the band's full-length debut album, Geeving. They launched the EP in North America in July, and started to gain the attention of Underground Records and Rise Records after they appeared on Disband performing songs from this release.[1]

The EP is the only physical release by the band to have member Martin Broda playing drums. He would later shift his position in the band to playing bass by the time of preparing for Geeving.
