New album 'Challenger' out now on Earache Records
"Haggard Cat create a cacophony of thrilling noise, and this debut hits you with an ear-damaging line of fuzz, with riffs so dirty you'd be forgiven for thinking they'd just done a Tough Mudder course." - Kerrang! KKKK
"a high-calibre duo" - Total Guitar ****
"a captivating new force in British rock." - Upset Magazine ****
"greasy slide guitar, filthy riffs and stupidly addictive grooves that make standing still a physical impossibility." - Metal Hammer
Fiery garage rock duo HAGGARD CAT have announced a UK tour supporting fellow Nottingham band PALM READER this July.
"Well July is looking a bit void of Haggard Cat ain't it?" comments vocalist and guitarist Matt Reynolds. "Let's fix that! The official greatest band on Earth PALM READER are letting the cat out along with our new friends in COVE all through July!!! (Except for Southampton, you lot will have to come see us in June with PATRONS instead.) Not bad that is it?"
HAGGARD CAT recently wrapped up a UK headlining tour in support of their new album, 'Challenger', and also announced a string of June dates with support from PATRONS. The band will join PALM READER as well as COVE starting in Leeds on July 22nd. View the tour flyer here <http://earacherecords.com/myspace/haggardcat_palmreadertour.jpg>.
