iDKHOW herald in debut album with new single

By On

For a project to pull a musician away from working with one of the biggest acts in the world, it has to be pretty damn compelling. While ex-Panic! At The Disco member Dallon Weekes has been making waves teasing his outfit, I DON’T KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME (iDKHOW), he’s also been well aware of the expectations that surround it. With the announcement today of iDKHOW’s long-awaited debut album, Razzmatazz, he’s quietly preparing to exceed them.

iDKHOW have shared fresh cut ‘Leave Me Alone’ to commemorate the news that Razzmatazz will drop on October 16. Ryan Seaman, former drummer of the Ronnie Radke-fronted powerhouse Falling In Reverse, rounds out the duo behind the pursuit. On the inspiration behind the record’s leading single, Weekes explains that it represents not the beginning of a mutual separation but an invitation of the chaos to come. He adds that “when you’re in a toxic situation, the phrase ‘Leave Me Alone’ is the last civil thing you say before things get uncivil.”

If you’ve been following the project closely, you would know that iDKHOW has somewhat of a storyline in and of itself. After being introduced by Weekes at a small show in Los Angeles in 2016, its existence was vehemently denied for the months to come. To add to the intrigue, the vintage aesthetic of iDKHOW isn’t incidental. The narrative goes that the band’s inception harks back to 30 plus years ago. Apparently, they were floating around, gearing up for a big break that never happened. Three years back, recovered video footage of their output began to surface – uncovered “tapes and recordings from an act long forgotten.” The clips that have been shared so far are clues that go towards unravelling the mystery, which is yet to be fully solved…
