Haggard Cat features Tom Marsh on Drums, and Matt Reynolds on vocals/guitar; names you may recognise from the infamously destructive hardcore band ‘HECK’. Taking the same attitude and fire that has pushed HECK’s name far and wide, Haggard Cat aim to convey the exact passion they are now known for in an entirely new way.
Forming way back in 2011 as a means to play as many gigs as the duo humanly could without the restraints of exclusivity thrust upon them as part as the highly acclaimed HECK, Haggard Cat originally intended as a sideline has now evolved into its own beast that the pair have decided to finally unleash into the world.
In 2017 Haggard Cat toured with the likes of Jamie Lenman, DZ Deathrays and Weirds as well as playing a headline slot at Camden Rocks and opening the main stage at ArcTanGent festival. The band continues to tease their second album, their first since deciding to make Haggard Cat a full-time project, and recently unveiled the singles ‘the Patriot’ and ‘American Graffiti’ which enjoyed national airplay on BBC Radio 1’s rock show and BBC Introducing.
