-Cleveland OH's Heart Attack Man will release their sophomore LP 'Fake Blood' on April 19 via You Did This/Triple Crown Records.
Heart Attack Man has also just released a music video for "Fake Blood" which finds frontman Eric Egan undergoing a strange medical experiment in a secret lab, which leads to much rocking-- until things go awry....
Known to many through their shrewdly clever use of social media (which prompted writer James Shotwell to write a think piece titled 'What Artists Can Learn From The Marketing Genius of Heart Attack Man'), the band's indie-leaning power-pop is a hefty concoction of grungy guitars and steady hooks which should appeal to fans of FIDLAR, SWMRS, Rozwell Kid, Weezer and Joyce Manor.

-Sincere Engineer is Deanna Belos with an acoustic guitar. Her dark and introspective songwriting clashes with the fact that she's a vibrant lil goofball in real life, yet somehow she maintains her ability to be authentic, charming, and...*ahem* sincere.
It seems as though maybe she picks up more than she lets on. Or, maybe she's just always thinking about corn dogs. Who knows?

-Houston’s Rome Hero Foxes named their sophomore LP 18 Summers, but it more accurately describes the band’s beginnings. Shortly after graduating high school, the quintet was discovered in 2016 by Dance Gavin Dance’s Kurt Travis and released For When You’re Falling Backwards. As far as debuts go, its expanse melded the urgency of post-hardcore with an inward gaze offsetting any chaos. That introspection, bent over swirling guitars and mesmerizing vocal lines, led to reinvention. Instead of baring their teeth through arrangements that spiraled and warped, the band took a self-imposed journey into simpler territory. A pair of twin EPs, I/O and Horoscope, reset Rome Hero Foxes as a group indebted to surf rock and indie pop instead of gnarlier waves, with the latter predicting their shimmering follow-up. Enter the real 18 Summers.
“During this time of writing all of this material, it made me envision all these songs as this sort of time capsule-like void or world where time is slow but life keeps moving faster,” vocalist and rhythm guitarist CJ Burton explains. With that definition in mind, it’s easy to understand the varied warmth and speeds put to tape here. “Seattle Queen,” with Andrew Hagan’s percolating keyboards leading the way, places love’s angled complexities behind a slice of bubblegum pop. “Chest Piece” splits its pathway between R&B schmaltz and vaulted pop-punk. Other fare, like the Black Mirror nod “San Junipero,” heighten interpersonal highs to infectious, but experimental highs. It’s the only track that reminds listeners of the band’s darker roots, with flecks of mathy guitar flanking verses. This album is as concerned with love as it is with its absence in the face of growing older and growing apart.

- “A greasy grimy Bay Area band brought together by fate and instagram dms. They play music for when you’re mad at your parents or sad over a girl and nothing else. Sneak out to one of their shows, put on one dangly earring, and get drenched in someone else’s sweat in the mosh pit. Maybe it’ll be theirs ;)”
