Good morning everyone, it’s me Heart Attack Man. Whom up freaking they nature? Haters will say it’s fake but we’re releasing our new album "Freak Of Nature" on May 26th. We’ve got a music video for the title track too... Anyway, here’s more about the new song from our overlord and savior Eric Egan: “‘Freak Of Nature’ is the most solidified Heart Attack Man song we’ve written to date. It cranks it all up to eleven and condenses everything we’ve done into the most potent version of our sound in the form of a true weirdo anthem. Lyrically, I really wanted to zero in on embracing feelings of abnormality and a lifelong sense of being out of place. I’ve always felt a sense of anxiety like I’m about to get yelled at or arrested, and this song is that sentiment flipped into a celebration”.

About Heart Attack Man
Heart Attack Man write the soundtrack to “figuring it out”. Rife with intricate riffs, gleefully catchy choruses, robust rhythms, and a whole lot of outcast charm, the Cleveland band - Eric Egan [vocals, guitar], Adam Paduch [drums], and Ty Sickels [guitar] - turn all the awkwardness of growing up into undeniable and unpredictable anthems, teetering on an axis of punk, rock, and pop. After racking up tens of millions of streams and earning acclaim from Brooklyn Vegan, FLOOD, UPROXX, Alternative Press, and more, the group tell a different kind of coming-of-age story on their 2023 third full-length, “Freak Of Nature”. “The overarching theme is growing up” says Eric “I spent my entire twenties just feeling completely out of place. It was like I hadn’t found my people yet. In early adulthood, I went through a lot of shit mentally. With Freak Of Nature, I’m embracing the fact I don’t know what the hell I’m doing, but it’s okay”.

The band initially buzzed out of the Midwest with 2014’s “Acid Rain” EP. Logging countless miles on the road, they consistently dropped fan favorite releases, including “The Manson Family” [2017], “Fake Blood” [2019], and the “Thoughtz & Prayerz” EP [2021]. hailed the latter as “some of the band’s absolute heaviest tunes to date,” while Brooklyn Vegan summed it up best as “killer.” Along the way, “Pitch Black” piled up 1.7 million Spotify streams followed by “Leap Year” with 1.3 million Spotify streams and counting. Moreover, they canvased the country on tour with the likes of Neck Deep. After bonding over a shared love of Motion City Soundtrack, Eric linked up with Lil Aaron [Lizzo, Blackbear, Kiiara] in Los Angeles. Who said nothing good goes down in the DM? “Even though we come from different lanes, we both have the same sense of humor and a similar attitude” he goes on “I’d bring ideas, and he would help shape them. It was a true collaboration. I learned how Aaron channels his creative energy and how to maintain momentum. We clicked, and I was accepting all of this new energy and goodness into my life”. Fittingly, they introduce this phase with the first single and title track “Freak Of Nature”. Co-written with Nick Wheeler of All-American Rejects, it hinges on an upbeat riff, giving way to a hypnotic bridge and infectiously irreverent refrain, “I’m a freak of nature”. The record started to become its own thing after we wrote this one” he recalls “There’s an overarching method to all of the madness. Musically, we’re leveling up. We allowed ourselves to grow”.

Whether or not you’ve figured your life out, Heart Attack Man will ultimately be with you, holding your hand every step of the way. “I’ve grappled with complex feelings of isolation, loneliness, and freakiness, and it’s an up-and-down rollercoaster” he leaves off “In the end, you need to hold on and trust the process. If I was talking to myself ten years ago, I was in a completely different place. It’s better now. Things do work out. For us, this is a new start, and I’m happy about it”.
