Haggard Cat announce ‘Goldberg’ and UK tour dates

By March 9, 2018 December 30th, 2021 Culture, Listen, News

It’s a double helping of goodness from Nottingham’s Haggard Cat today. They’ve released another dose of riffage from forthcoming album ‘Challenger’ in the form of ‘Goldberg’.


Plus the Nottingham duo have also revealed the ‘Challenger UK Tour’ which will see them play 12 shows up and down the country in April and May. It’s actually quite apt that they should release this song on the same day as announcing the tour. As vocalist / guitarist Matt Reynolds explains “’Goldberg’ is a very personal song to us. The lyrics deal with how touring and expectation cause deterioration of mental health and how our perception of ourselves on the road can lead to toxic behaviour. Although this might sound quite reflective, it’s actually a very positive song about being more self aware and pulling through to the other side. Musically, it’s also one of my personal favourites, focusing on the time signature still makes my head spin and I can’t wait to get out on the road to play that chorus riff nice and loud!”
