Maritime formed in 2003 out of the ashes of The Promise Ring and The Dismemberment Plan. After these two bands broke up, singer/guitarist Davey von Bohlen, drummer Dan Didier (of The Promise Ring) and bassist Eric Axelson (of The Dismemberment Plan) hooked up and 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 label heads decided to pass on the record. The band changed their 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 their debut full-length album, Glass Floor on Desoto Records.

On February 6, 2006, Eric Axelson announced he was leaving the band. He was replaced on bass guitar by Justin Klug.

Their second album, We, the Vehicles, was released April 18, 2006, on Flameshovel Records to wide critical acclaim.

Their third album, Heresy and the Hotel Choir, was released 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.

In late April, 2010, the band announced that they were leaving Flameshovel Records and had signed with Dangerbird Records. Their fourth album Human Hearts was released on April 5, 2011. [1]
