Today, I DONT KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME (iDKHOW) release the second song and title track from their forthcoming debut album Razzmatazz out October 16. The new song follows the success of the album’s lead single “Leave Me Alone,” described as a “diabolical dance-floor jam” (Alt Press), which hit the top 20, climbing at Alt Radio and continues to be one of the greatest gainers on the chart for 5 consecutive weeks. “Razzmatazz” gives us a taste of what is to come from the Ziggy Stardust and Sgt. Pepper’s-inspired project. The song encapsulates iDKHOW’s disillusionment with Hollywood with a fuzzy bass line and a crescendoing piano with Weekes singing, “Let’s go paint the town on our way home, the blinking lights are breaking bones…and there you have that good old-fashioned razzmatazz…”

The band has already achieved surprising success racking up over 100 million Spotify streams, the #1 spot on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart for the 1981 Extended Play EP and 32k plays at Alternative radio reaching an audience of over 64 million.
Razzmatazz is the next chapter in iDKHOW’s unfurling curated storyline, in the multi-faceted world Dallon has constructed, iDKHOW was initially believed to have been a band from 30 plus years ago that never got their big break. But in 2017, an anonymous source began to release recovered video footage of iDKHOW. The videos that span the years 1964 to 1983 have been released out of sequence and display a mysterious genesis that has yet to be understood.
Dallon Weekes made waves in Panic! At The Disco from 2009-2018, touring around the world and picking up Gold and Platinum plaques as a key songwriter on the chart-topping Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die! and more. In 2016, he introduced iDKHOW at a small show in Los Angeles before denying its existence for months to follow. The project formally revealed itself prior to hitting the road and performing on the mainstage at UK’s Reading and Leeds Festivals as well as sharing stages with the likes of Twenty One Pilots, The 1975, Billie Eilish, The Killers, The National and Blink 182, just to name a few.
