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 Spencer 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 an increasing number 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, deals with themes of religion, environmentalism, the effects of modern technology on society, as well as a wry look at our modern political leaders, all wrapped up in a package of big riffs and bigger choruses! The band plan to release the album in 2019 and will be looking for support gigs and festival spots over the next 12 months, while simultaneously beginning work on album number 2!
