Thoughtz & Prayerz Across America Tour 2022

March 30, 2022, Denver, CO

After announcing their first ever headlining tour, Heart Attack Man set out in early March with Covey, Arm’s Length, and Blood Root. They played at HQ in Denver, Colorado on March 30th, 2022. The bands arrived early to play rounds of cornhole at the venue with the fans before entering the venue. 

Starting off the night were the Nashville, TN locals, Blood Root. The lights were dark and blue, setting an intimate vibe as the fans were still filling inside of the venue. Playing songs off their most recent EP Crux, they played “O.H.E.” with meaningful lyrics and a soft vibe. Picking up the tempo a bit more, they played “Self-Medicating on a Weekday” the fans were more captured by the music. As the set went on, more fans arrived and was clear that the music from Blood Root was enjoyable and relaxing. 

Setlist: 

  1. O.H.E. 
  2. Self-Medicate
  3. Start A Fire
  4. Teeth 
  5. Tether
  6. Your Girl 
  7. Conversations 

Next up was Arm’s Length from Ontatio. I haven’t listened to them before but was presently surprised with their set that night. The tempo picked up more during their set with “Safer Skin” and the fans moved more and sang along. They played more songs off of their recent EP from last year, “Everything Nice,” with a mix of between emo and pop-punk, the wistful guitar interplays and poetic pretensions. Finishing off their set, they surprised the crowd with playing a cover of Taylor Swift’s “Mine.” 

Setlist: 

  1. Object Permanence 
  2. Safer Skin
  3. No Sleep/Blank Slate/Eve
  4. Gallows Humor
  5. Watercolour 
  6. Garamond 
  7. Mine (Taylor Swift cover)

Would you believe it if I said that Covey has over 1.4 million followers on TikTok? Neither would have I if I hadn’t looked it up myself. It’s not everyday that you see bands promoting themselves on social media in a way that benefits them in the best ways possible. Covey came out and played the most interesting set I’ve seen, and in a good way. They played “Sam Jam” which started off slow and melodic but was taken off guard at the end when fans were singing “F*ck that guy, I hope he’s dead.” At one point, I remember him chanting something about teeth and looking around as others were just as confused as I was. During the last song, they had everyone get on the stage with them singing along and dancing as they finished their set. 

The infamous Heart Attack Man was next and was most excited to see them as they’re one of my favorite bands these days. I heard and saw pictures on twitter of Eric coming out into the crowd on a tricycle and doing tricks before getting on stage and that was just the case.  It wouldn’t be right if they started off the set without playing “Puke” to get the energy up even higher. People were pushing, singing, and even two stepping. They played songs off their latest EP “Thoughtz & Prayerz” hence the name of the tour. After a few songs in, Eric asked if anyone had a birthday that night in the crowd and sadly there were none, but that didn’t stop them from playing “Old Enough 2 Die.” I was hoping they would play older songs from “Fake Blood” and they did. I caught myself singing along as they played “Crisis Actor,” probably one of my favorite songs off that album. The crowd was wild the entire night, with people crowd surfing left and right and even Eric himself as well. Finishing off the night, they ended with “Leap Year” as more people ended up on stage with them to jump into the crowd and sing into the microphone with them.

  1. Puke
