Dallon Weekes, the former Panic! At The Disco bassist, and drummer Ryan Seaman will see 1981 Extended Play, the debut release from their once and future band, I Dont Know How But They Found Me (iDKHOW), in-stores on November 9 (Fearless Records). The EP’s six-tracks were produced, written or co-written by Weekes, and recorded at various locations in Utah and California. Sonically, the songs are from a time when fashions were loud, melodies were infectious and iconoclastic pop trailblazers broke through commercialy without compromising artistically. Pre-orders for the EP can be placed HERE.
Weekes has plenty of experience with the potential for a great song to move crowds. As bassist/backing vocalist for Panic! At The Disco from 2009 – 2017, Weekes co-wrote the band’s massive hits “This is Gospel” and “Girls/Girls/Boys,” and is credited on nearly all of the songs that comprise the album Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!.
Said the band, “The hard working people at iDKHOW are pleased to align with Fearless to unearth and uncover the rare and forgotten recordngs of I Dont Know How But They Found Me. We look forward to rediscovering this long-forgotten music together and giving iDKHOW a second chance. For the first time.”
iDKHOW will set out on the road this fall as main support for Waterparks. The 23-city U.S. tour starts on November 2 at the Kelsey Theatre in Lake Park, FL, and will also feature Nick Gray and Super Whatevr.
