TORONTO, ON – October 5, 2023 – I DONT KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME (iDKHOW), the musical project of Salt Lake City-based singer/ songwriter/ multi-instrumentalist, Dallon Weekes, unveils highly anticipated sophomore album, GLOOM DIVISION. Along with the announcement comes new single WHAT LOVE?, an homage to the sexually suggestive R&B hits that ruled the 90s airwaves, amplifying the track’s seductive ambiance with slinky guitar riffs, potent basslines and lyrics channeling an aching desperation. Pre-order GLOOM DIVISON here.
The single comes with a visually captivating video directed by iDKHOW’s longtime collaborator, Raúl Gonzo. Dallon takes viewers on a bewitching journey through a vivid set, reminiscent of a scene straight out of a John Waters film, seamlessly transitioning between various eccentric characters. Watch the video for WHAT LOVE? here.
Produced by Dave Fridmann (Tame Impala, MGMT, Weezer), the album showcases a boundary-pushing fusion of R&B, post-punk and art-pop, exploring themes ranging from love and obsession to satanic panic and neurodivergence. Recorded at Fridmann's Tarbox Road Studios and Weekes' own basement studio, GLOOM DIVISION is a testament to the power of collaboration and fearless artistic expression.
“Writing has always been an outlet to exorcize your demons or difficult emotions, but with GLOOM DIVISION I made a conscious effort to stop censoring myself when it comes to the subject material, or what I wanted to say," reflects Weekes on GLOOM DIVISION.
iDKHOW has confirmed a hometown New Year’s celebration that will take place on December 30 at The Depot in Salt Lake City. Presale tickets can be accessed today with the passcode WHATLOVE starting at 10:00 a.m. MDT with general onsale starting Friday October, 6 at 10:00 a.m. MDT. Ticket link here. More tour dates will be announced soon.
iDKHOW has garnered nearly 1 billion million streams worldwide to date, with 2 million monthly listeners on Spotify. The new album follows iDKHOW's critically acclaimed debut, Razzmatazz, which included the #1 Alternative radio hit, Leave Me Alone, and the previous EP 1981 Extended Play that included RIAA certified GOLD-certified single, Choke.
