Tim Heidecker will release a new album, High School, on June 24 via Spacebomb, and he's just shared another track from it. "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.” You can still hear that Warren Zevon influence, too — listen below.

Tim will be hitting the road this summer for a hybrid tour that will feature both standup and his band. He's added a few more shows to the tour since we last posted, including a fourth night at Brooklyn's Bell House on August 23. His 8/24, 8/25 and 8/26 Bell House shows are sold out. All dates are listed below.
