Sordid Ordeal formed in Melbourne in 2010 and played the city's pubs and bars relentlessly until 2015 when they released their first EP 'Regicide'. After 3 years of false starts and line-up changes the band recruited new members and signed to the Baron Von weasel Music Management label.

After reforming in 2018 Sordid Ordeal spent the year playing a slew of shows and recorded their latest release; 3 songs for the Singing Bird Sessions Compilation album featuring covers of their agency-mates Australian Kingswood Factory, The Balls and Devilmonkey (featured here)

In January 2019 the band went in to Studio in Melbourne to record a 7" EP of new songs which is currently being mixed and mastered.
