In a social media post dated September 17th, Weekes disclosed that drummer Ryan Seaman would no longer be a part of iDKHOW.

He announced the completion of a new iDKHOW album, produced by the highly regarded Dave Fridmann, known for his work with The Flaming Lips and Phantom Planet, among others. Weekes expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to collaborate with Fridmann, describing it as a dream come true. Fans can expect this eagerly awaited album to be released via Concord Records, with Weekes expressing his enthusiasm for the team’s dedication to getting the music out into the world as soon as possible.

Weekes also took a moment to acknowledge the tremendous support from iDKHOW fans, noting some remarkable milestones achieved since the last album. The band has amassed 1 million followers on Spotify, a testament to their growing popularity. Additionally, their hit track Choke has been certified GOLD in both the US and Canada, an achievement that Weekes finds equally humbling and incredible.

In closing, Dallon Weekes expressed his gratitude for the patience and unwavering support of iDKHOW fans throughout this journey. He thanked them for their moxie and assured them that the new album would be shared soon.
