Haggard Cat Have Dropped A Chaotically Rallying New Track ‘Quit Your Jobs’

It's the first music from the duo as an independent band.

Haggard Cat have kicked off a whole new era with a brand new song. 

'Quit Your Jobs' serves as the band's first fully independent release and is a rallying call to arms via a mesh of harsh riffs and bludgeoning drums. 

It's Haggard Cat at their most vicious and volatile and a sign of big things to come.

Guitarist/vocalist Matt Reynolds had this to say about where the track stemmed from:

“When we were writing this group of songs, Quit Your Jobs was the first track that really jumped out and grabbed us, we knew instantly that it had to be the first thing people heard from this new body of work, it was just so aggressive and felt so much more immediate than what had come before; it felt like a mission statement for where we were going next. There was a sense that it was coming from a place of genuine anger and frustration and Adrian (Bushby) captured it perfectly on record. We wrote the lyrics about an actual series of bad advice that we received from our old record label. We were in a meeting with them, and they literally were sat there straight-faced refusing to work on a marketing plan with us, insisting our next move was to “quit your jobs”. They just kept repeating it, it was eery. Advice that also followed these pearls of wisdom was “fake your death” – I know this sounds made up but it’s 100% true”.

Here we gooooo:

It's the first taste of the band's new EP 'Cheer Up' which will drop on September 03.

01. Quit Your Jobs
