Hardland join forces with Metalmessage Promotions!


As of 2020 Hardland have joined forces with Markus Eck and Metalmessage Promotions to work together on spreading the name of the band worldwide! We got in contact with Markus after mutual friends in the business told us all kinds of great stories about his work, qualities and most of all his personality! We look forward to a great and fruitful collaboration with him and Metalmessage! Cheers!


The release of HARDLAND’s second album didn’t go unnoticed in the press.  Reviews e.g. by Headbangers Lifestyle.com, Powerplay Rock&Metal Magazine Review In Control, LFL Review In Control (in Dutch) and Arrow Lords Of Metal (in Dutch), in which they praised the musical creativity by the band within the Rock genre. Positive responses from the press that were underlined by the remark of Arrow Lords Of Metal that the album is absolutely worth your money: great music coming in a beautiful digi-pack with a bonus DVD included!


The long wait is over! On August 9 LO41 Records proudly released the sophomore album of Dutch Hardrockers HARDLAND!! Nine brand new tracks penned down by the band plus a rocking cover of the 1979 Tubeway Army hit “Are Friends Electric”!

Make sure to get yourself a copy of this brand new CD from HARDLAND! The album is available via the website of LO41 Records, or downloadable via CD BABY. Streaming through all available channels, such as Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, etc.

The latest single from HARDLAND has experienced its baptism of fire at one of the great Rock Radio stations of America, Rock Rage Radio!

The song will have its absolute world premiere in the Poison Ivy Show on Rock Rage Radio Saturday 18 May.

Poison Ivy (Emberly Arp) was one of the first Radio Hosts in the United States to pick up HARDLAND and since then has continued to promote the band passionately in her Radio Shows. Which quickly led to more attention from numerous other stations on the other side of the Atlantic.

The many (very) positive reviews that HARDLAND’s debut album received and all the radio attention even led to HARDLAND being recently nominated 7x for an award from the International Singer-Songwriters Association, of which on August 3 in 4 of those categories the band actually hopes to redeem their nomination.

HARDLAND and her guitarist / singer / composer Aeilko Venema have recently reached the final of the International Singer-Songwriters Association Awards 2019 election.

In no less than 4 categories, Band Of The Year, Single Of The Year (with the song Dream Into Nightmare), Male Songwriter Of The Year and Mixing / Sound Engineer Of The Year 2019 they compete for the prizes!
