What others are saying about Heart Attack Man's 'Fake Blood':
"...they can be as sly as their melodies are big (which is to say, “very”). These guys know that a focused guitar melody, a propulsive rhythm section, and some raggedy, mournful screams can help convey the strength, poise, and determination we need to deal with a confusing world—and in their lyrics, they go even further, demolishing toxic fantasies and working toward a more inclusive future."- Chicago Reader
“... we’ve finally found a worthy successor to the Blue Album or Pinkerton. Fake Blood is brimming to the edges w/ attitude, spitfire spite, and a blast of humor and intelligence... One of the year’s most compelling rock records. ” - Sound the Sirens Magazine
"Heart Attack Man is the unsung hero of millennial rock music. No, this record is not for everyone. It’s a dark and twisted journey that will leave some feeling uncomfortable and upset, but that’s the way of the antihero."- Substream Magazine
"...a crunchy, power pop-ish song that’s sort of somewhere in between Modern Baseball and Weezer."- Brooklynvegan
"... a musical link between Husker Du and Sugar."- God Is In The TV
"A fine mixture of self-deprecation and cutting lyricism, Heart Attack Man balances catchy pop-punk, hardcore and 90’s alt-nostalgia....the type of record that develops an intense cult following while showcasing Heart Attack Man as one of the next band’s to break out on the scene."- Chorus.fm
"...one of modern emo’s most compellingly forceful albums in some time. Heart Attack Man realistically verge towards straight-up rock in just how much power they’re able to pack in. And that’s entirely complimentary as well. Transcending emo’s ceiling is not an easy task, but the spark in HAM is undeniable, and ’Fake Blood’ is where it’s really crystallised into something excellent." (4/5)- *Already Heard*
"Heart Attack Man skillfully harnesses the power of perfectly timed, grungy hooks alongside a tantalizing chorus-to-bridge build-up." - Spinning Thoughts
"a hefty mix of dirty guitars and solid hooks that should appeal to fans of FIDLAR, SWMRS, Rozwell Kid, Weezer and Joyce Manor."- Count Your Bruises Magazine
"...gritty, grungy punk rock that channels some of the genre’s best, most prominently bands like Wheatus and Weezer."- Depth Mag
