See Haggard Cat live at Rough Trade Nottingham, for the first chance to get your hands on their new album 'Challenger', released on April 20th via Earache.

Monday 16th April, doors open at 7pm, Haggard Cat live on-stage at 8pm, album signing 8.45pm, 9.30pm close.

After making their names in their previous act, the acclaimed UK hardcore band HECK, vocalist/guitarist Matt Reynolds and drummer Tom Marsh aim to carry that same attitude and fire over to HAGGARD CAT, creating a two-man beast of a band which is set to reignite the UK rock scene. Known for their intense live performances, HAGGARD CAT's stage presence and sheer sonic power far exceeds what should be possible for a two-piece band - who are also joined on stage by their trusty mascot, Chris - a three-legged wooden stool which accompanies the band at every show. 'Challenger' features ten hard-hitting tracks that are noticeably more riff-oriented than HECK, and includes artwork created by English musician and illustrator Jamie Lenman.

"Imagine Robert Johnson’s blues licks interlaced with Black Sabbath’s guitar tone meeting at a delta city crossroads and making a pact with the devil. Add a pinch of wild banshee soulful vocals, frenzied Bonzo-style drumming… it’s impossible not to be swept up by the sheer exuberance of two musicians cutting loose and having fun."
