In May 2023, Heart Attack Man released their highly-acclaimed record Freak Of Nature featuring single “Like A Kennedy.” Now, that fan-favorite track is getting a rework with help from Waterparks‘ own Awsten Knight.

In the rendition, Knight adds his trademark glowing pop-rock to the grit of Heart Attack Man‘s track striking a balance of edge any alternative fan is sure to love.

“‘Like A Kennedy’ is a unique song in my eyes,” vocalist Eric Egan shares. “It’s a song I wanted to write for so long but had never gotten it completely right. Once we nailed it as a band, it started taking shape beyond the album version. We’ve never had a vocal feature like this before, and we were beginning to wonder if that would be something we’d wanna explore.”

Egan continues, “It’s important to us that features represent real-life friendships. Fortunately, Awsten already loved the demo version, so it was an easy ask for me. It just made sense. Plus, he brought some ideas to the song I wouldn’t have thought of, so I couldn’t be happier with the life this song has taken on.”

While the two bands aren’t heading out on any tours together soon, Heart Attack Man is soon beginning their tour with Carpool Tunnel as they support Origami Angel and Microwave. The pop-punk extravaganza kicks off on May 7 in Buffalo at Town Ballroom and concludes in Philadelphia at Franklin Music Hall. Check out the full route below and grab tickets here.
