Sordid Ordeal is a blistering heavy rock band from the Northern suburbs of Melbourne. With a sound driven by hot-rod blues and epic rock anthems, the band has earned a reputation for high-energy, whiskey-fueled live shows and tragic stories of personal disaster.
The band is currently working on new material to take back to the studio.

There’s a lot to take away from this record, but there’s even more to come back for.”
