Logan McNeal - Bass
Cleveland OH, pop-punk quartet HEART ATTACK MAN have been making waves in the scene for quite some time now since their 2013 inception. With their 2019 sophomore album "Fake Blood", the band introduced fans to a new sound, a midwestern pop-punk meets "elder emo" sound (IE Weezer meets The Wonder Years).
The band recently dropped a new EP entitled "Thoughtz & Prayers" via Triple Crown Records. If you were a fan of Heart Attack Man's previous albums, this new EP is something totally different yet all too familiar. Opening track "Puke" is a punch in the face and gives off more of a sludge punk feel while follow-up and title track "Thoughtz & Prayers" has more of an industrial vibe with the still sludge punk feel.
Following track "Cool 2 Me" follows suit with that industrial meets sludge punk sound with the band closing out the record with tracks "Pitch Black" and "Leap Year" which take fans back to Heart Attack Man Roots with thier aformentioned pop-punk midwestern sound. Tracks like Leap Year and Pitch Black had me singing along to every chorus where as the rest of the album wanted me to scream my lungs out and break shit in the process.
Thoughtz & Prayers is like a controlled riot where it's crazy and unpredictable while at the same time drives the point home by being a great pop-punk record.
Thoughtz & Prayers is out now via Triple Crown Records. Heart Attack Man is on a North American tour now with Neck Deep, Boston Manor, Zero 9:36 and Oxymorons.
