Milwaukee band Maritime--which was born from the ashes of The Promise Ring in 2003--has some big news to announce here: They just signed to Dangerbird Records, home of Silversun Pickups, The Dears, Minus The Bear, and others. Their debut disc for the label (and fourth overall) will be released later this year. But first: the band's mellow cover of Depeche Mode's "Enjoy The Silence," complete with keytar from drummer Dan Didier. Oh, and they'd like you to know that they're playing at UW-Madison this Friday, April 30.
