Haggard Cat – European Hardware

Today’s track of the day comes from Haggard Cat with their new single European Hardware!

Haggard Cat have documented their challenge of spending 24 hours in a concrete block for their European Hardware video!

Guitarist/vocalist Matt Reynolds explains:“It’s basically our take on the classic three minute long punk thrasher. The lyrics satirise our current political climate, where the actions and decisions seem to be entirely driven by self and ego. The song describes a desire to escape it all and channels all our frustrations into a sing-along mantra for the downtrodden.

“Just over a month ago we sealed ourselves in a concrete catacomb for 24 hours. The video itself documents the whole thing, it’s all real, we actually stayed in there for the duration and live-streamed the whole thing, it was hell! We did this to visually represent what we’re talking about in the song, in order to hopefully get a few more of you talking about how detrimental the current political path we’re on will be to every one of us (well those of us who aren’t billionaires, or millionaires working for the billionaires).”
