Noisy two-piece Haggard Cat are premiering their new video for Bad News (Travels Fast) exclusively with Metal Hammer.

Bad News (Travels Fast) is taken from the Haggard Cat's debut album Challenger, which is onsale April 20.

"Bad News (Travels Fast) was one of the first songs we wrote for Challenger," says vocalist and guitarist Matt Reynolds. “It's also one of our live favourites. It's about Chinese whispers and our tendency to fascinate on the negative. Bad news travels fast, rise above it and focus on other things."

Haggard Cat is the new project from former Heck members Matt Reynolds and Tom Marsh.

Challenger is available to pre-order now from Amazon.
