cancel culture - coming 2021




MORTLAND are a 5-piece hard rock band based in Nottingham (UK) built around the partnership of guitarist Andy Shortland and vocalist Matt Moreton, both ex-members of Cloven Hoof and Tom Galley’s Phenomena, with the line-up completed by drummer Jordan Williams from Evil Scarecrow, producer/guitarist Dave Buckley and bassist Nick Watson. The band was formed in 2017 as a fun, side project playing rock covers in local bars, but quickly became a more serious proposition as a selection of original songs began to be written, and by spring of 2018 recording sessions began for the first MORTLAND album. 

MORTLAND’s debut album, DEVIL MAY CARE, was released in October 2019 to great acclaim, and then...2020 happened! The enforced hiatus brought on by the pandemic meant the band simply re-focussed their efforts on writing and recording album number 2, something they've managed to achieve largely in isolation. 

Now, in 2021, MORTLAND plan to complete and release their second opus, as well as eventually hitting the road to promote both albums.
