Biography
Mordecai are a Hard Rock band from London, England.Pulling their influences from bands such as Black Stone Cherry, Alter Bridge and Black Label Society, they’ve fused together their own rich and dark, but melodic, American hard rock sound, with a gritty British Metal twist.Since forming, Mordecai’s festival appearances to date include Bloodstock 2010, Bull Dog Bash 2010, Hammerfest 2011 and two consecutive years at Download Festival 2012 and 2013. They have supported bands such as Black Light Burns, Bam Margera’s FFU and Fightstar.

Since solidifying the unit in 2010, Dan, Andy, Goodwin and Rick, have shown their determination and drive by receiving raving reviews from industry such as; Harry Paterson (Music Journalist), Andy Copping (Download Festival), and John Moyer (Disturbed).
One of their notable achievements, being invited to be a part of Mark Tremonti (Creed, Alter Bridge, Tremonti Project)’s, ‘Fret12 Artist Development Program’ for the summer of 2012.

In 2012 Mordecai were crowned ‘New Band of the Year’ at the Pure Rawk awards, reached the regional finals of the global battle of the bands with Hard Rock Cafe/Hard Rock Calling (reaching the top 160 bands out of 5.5million world-wide) and played a very well received Sunday afternoon slot at Download Festival.

2013 saw the release of their debut album ‘Undaunted’, which was recorded at the Grammy award winning ‘Studio A’ in Philadelphia, USA. Mordecai were invited to play a second consecutive year at Download Festival, playing to a full capacity tent on the Sunday afternoon.

Mordecai are continuing to aim high, they are making waves on both sides of the Atlantic and are determined not to let up.
