LOS ANGELES, CA – Wednesday, May 22, 2019 – With its debut single “Choke” #15 this week at Alternative radio, #1 for its second consecutive week at SiriusXM’s Alt Nation, 23.7-million audio streams, 17.1 YouTube video views, a debut EP, 1981 Extended Play now exceeding 50-million streams, and a slew of sold-out shows on its just-concluded, first-ever U.S. headline tour, I DONT KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME, aka iDKHOW, announces a Summer leg of its “Night Heat” North American tour, a five-week trek that starts June 16 with an appearance at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival on June 16.  The run will also include two radio station shows, the 95X Big X Cuse radio concert on July 12 in Syracuse, NY, and 103.3/The Edge’s Riverworks in Buffalo on July 14.
The brainchild of Dallon Weekes, former long-time bassist for Panic! At The Disco and co-writer of that band’s Platinum album Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!, iDKHOW’s music is a catchy concoction of art rock, space rock and alternative with magnetic pop vocals and some seriously dark, but witty, lyrics. Joined by good friend Ryan Seaman on drums, the live show is deliriously audacious and thoroughly engaging.

ABOUT I DONT KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME (iDKHOW)
The heart and soul of I DONT KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME is Dallon Weekes, long-time bassist for Panic! At The Disco and one of the songwriters/lyricists behind Panic’s Platinum release Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!.  Good friend and professional drummer Ryan Seaman played drums on the EP’s tracks as well as on live dates.  iDKHOW’s music is a catchy concoction of art rock, space rock and alternative, with swaggering, magnetic pop vocals and witty, sardonic lyrics.
IDKHOW’s debut single, “Choke,” is already trending the Top 15 on the Alternative Radio charts, and accumulated more than 36-million streams.  iDKHOW released its six-song debut EP, 1981 Extended Play (Fearless) in late 2018, that has topped 50-million streams to date, and Alternative Press and the UK’s Rock Sound have already put iDKHOW on their respective covers.  iDKHOW’s quirky backstory:  a lost act from the late 70s/early 80s that never quite made it, but its rare and long-forgotten music has recently been unearthed thanks to today’s resources like YouTube.  iDKHOW is getting a second chance for the first time.
