Vulfpeck’s Theo Katzman Releases Solo Album “Heartbreak Hits” [Listen]

first_img“I’m excited for people to hear it,” Theo explains. “It’s a combination of real life meets songwriting, which is to say it’s not like it’s an auto-biographical record. It’s more like my experience channeled into song craft, where I thought… “What could that be? It’s a murder mystery. Oh! There we go!” Then I wrote that. That’s one of the songs on the record, “My Heart is Dead.” I think it’s rad, it’s rock, it’s just like, “ahhh-ahhh!!”, in a cool way. But it’s also fun and creative.” Read the full interview here about “Heartbreak Hits” here.In the words of producer Tyler Duncan, “it’s somehow a living dichotomy of tragic/comedic, serious/satirical, over-the-top/subtle, healing/hurting, and I love it.” The album includes fellow Vulfpeck members Joe Dart and Woody Goss, among other incredible musicians.

Today is the day!If you’ve heard the name Theo Katzman recently, you probably know him as the singing drummer and guitarist in the funk band Vulfpeck. But with his 2017 release, Heartbreak Hits, now officially here, Katzman returns to his roots as a rock and roll inspired singer/songwriter with a ten-track collection of musings on loss and letdown.“Heartbreak Hits is basically a concept album about heartbreak,” Theo told us in an interview recently. “It was my first time really feeling that in my life, and it was these multiple things… There’s some stuff on it that is the deepest I’ve ever gotten towards expressing some of my dark feelings, and then there’s also some stuff where I’m just straight up laughing at some of my dark feelings, and there’s some stuff where I’m being really sarcastic about them. There’s some stuff where I’m totally serious and sincere, and I just feel really loving about it. It’s pretty manic in a great way, I think, and it’s all rock & roll to me.”After several online teasers, the full studio album is officially here. Having recently wrapped up a solo tour, Katzman will be hitting the road with Vulfpeck for 15 dates this summer. Full schedule here. We anticipate seeing a lot more from Katzman in 2017.,“I’m excited for people to hear it,” Theo explains. “It’s a combination of real life meets songwriting, which is to say it’s not like it’s an auto-biographical record.
