LISTEN: Tim Heidecker Shares Blazing & Twangy New Single “Punch in the Gut”

Tim Heidecker presents a new single, “Punch in the Gut,” from his recently-announced album High School, out June 24th on Spacebomb Records. Following lead single “Buddy,” “Punch in the Gut” has a country twang, with a blazing guitar and a layered chorus. “This one started while thinking about how Warren Zevon might approach a high school parking lot, high noon style showdown,” says Heidecker. “But as I worked it, I recalled an incident where a friend of mine was visiting my school and was falsely accused of stealing. He was Black and it felt like profiling to me. There’s a lot of him in the song ‘Buddy’ too.

High School was produced by Heidecker, Drew EricksonEric D. Johnson and Mac DeMarco, and recorded at DeMarco’s studio. There, the group added drum machines and synths and sidewinding solos to Heidecker’s big strummed chords. Johnson (Bonny Light Horseman, Fruit Bats) helped Heidecker finesse the tunes even more, making the music as rich as the feelings.

This summer, Heidecker is taking his “No More Bullshit” stand-up character on the road, as well as The Very Good Band to present the first two-act evening of Tim Heidecker’s comedy and music. The first half of the night features  “An Evening with Tim Heidecker” stand up special while the second half of the show features Heidecker, the songwriter, musician and performer. Heidecker (guitar, vocals) and the Very Good Band, Josh Adams (drums), Eliana Athayde (bass, vocals) and Catfish Connor (lead guitar, pedal steel), will play songs from the entire Tim Heidecker catalog. Tickets are on sale now at  timheidecker.com/live.
