"Haggard Cat are stalking out their own savage blues-rock path" - Total Guitar
"A cacophony of thrilling noise" - Kerrang!
Nottingham duo HAGGARD CAT have released their brand new album 'Challenger' today worldwide.
After making their names in the acclaimed UK hardcore band HECK, vocalist/guitarist Matt Reynolds and drummer Tom Marsh have brought 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.
'Challenger' features ten hard-hitting tracks which are noticeably more riff-oriented than HECK, and includes artwork created by English musician and illustrator Jamie Lenman.
