iDKHOW Announce Long-Awaited Debut Album, Razzmatazz
It’s been a long, loooong time coming, and finally Dallon Weekes’ iDKHOW (aka I Don’t Know How But They Found Me) have announced their debut album.
The band – completed by drummer Ryan Seaman – will be releasing the excellently-titled Razzmatazz on October 16 via Fearless Records, with lead single Leave Me Alone available to stream now.
Succinctly explaining the meaning behind the song, Dallon says: “Now I want you to leave me alone. When you’re in a toxic situation, the phrase ‘leave me alone’ is the last civil thing you say before things get uncivil.”
A press release detailing Razzmatazz describes the record as “the next chapter in iDKHOW’s unfurling curated storyline”, which fans will no doubt already have their theories on…
Last summer, Dallon revealed to Kerrang! the lyrical inspiration that he’d be considering when it came to iDKHOW’s debut, explaining that his “distaste for all things Los Angeles” was an influence.
“I lived there for eight or nine years and it’s just not my kind of town,” he admitted. “There are things I do like about it, but the entertainment and business culture is not one of them. The way that people treat each other is just not for me. You can expect some of the songs to be about that – I’ve already written a few, but I got a lot more to say about it. What else? Missing my family a lot on the road. That’s another one.”
