With their new album, ‘Freak of Nature’, due to be released on May 26th, Heart Attack Man has shared its latest single – ‘Stick Up’.
“‘Stick Up’ represents beginning to stand up for myself more and being assertive.”
While the trio are known for their aggressive brand of melodic punk rock, ‘Stick Up’ is a more airy affair. Carried by an addictive, plucky hook, the track’s chorus sees frontman Eric Egan express his frustration in life.
“’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,” Egan explains. “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.”

Heart Attack Man‘s new album, ‘Freak Of Nature’, is set to be released on May 26th. It sees the Cleveland trio produce an abundance of intricate riffs, gleefully catchy choruses, and robust rhythms. Its 10 songs are threaded together by a theme of growing up.
“I spent my entire twenties just feeling completely out of place. It was like I hadn’t found my people yet,” states Eric Egan. “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.”
‘Freak Of Nature’s title track was released last month and was co-written with Nick Wheeler of All-American Rejects.
