Heart Attack Man are going to be releasing their new record Freak Of Nature next month, and based on the teasers they have been sharing it’s going to be an instant scene classic.
The latest is “Stick Up”, a bold and brilliant piece of pop-rock genius. Delivering aggressive lyrical turns against a bright and breezy instrumental, it’s a juxtaposition of the head and heart in the most assertive and attention-grabbing way. A summer anthem with a deadly core, it’s Heart Attack Man through and through.
Vocalist Eric Egan had this to say about it, showing how the more shocking elements of the song come from a place of growth and understanding:
“’Stick Up’ came from a place of having reached a point of dissatisfaction with the outlook I had on the world and my general attitude—I was a lot more passive and allowed myself to be at the mercy of however things unfolded when I was younger. ‘Stick Up’ represents beginning to stand up for myself more and being assertive.”
Freak Of Nature will be released on May 26. Eric had this to say about what it represents for him:
“The overarching theme is growing up. 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.”
