A lot of you have probably seen it by now but a lot of IDK’s and Dallon’s personal equipment has been stolen and it’s looking really bad right now. Let’s all just hope everything turns out okay.

If any of you have been in the area or notice something suspicious online or elsewhere don’t hesitate to bring it to someone’s attention. Musicians’ gear gets stolen way too often.

can you guys be decent please? no asking “is this shade?” every time he mentions Panic or IDKHow (he left amicably and isn’t mad about his time spent w Panic)

no more drawing parallels between TOP and IDKHow (please they’re friends and TOP didnt invent cryptic marketing + world building)

can we just let the music be music and enjoy shit without being fuckin annoying

I don’t know if you all have heard but last night a ton of idkhow’s stuff was stolen from a hotel room including a bass, multiple cables and computers, and all of the music and backups that Dallon has been working on for the full length album. Ryan and Dallon have worked so hard for everything and don’t deserve this in any way. This has truly wrecked so much for them and if you know anything please help. I hope whoever did this gets what they deserve as Dallon and Ryan only have a few weeks before they are leaving on tour.

Some people on Twitter just made Mr Dallon “Try his best not to swear” Weekes cuss again. People, please be nice. They are already freaked out and just trying to do whatever possible to make things less worse. Stop attacking each other. Just now I saw someone calling Breezy “garbage person” on twitter and that was horrible. Be as nice as Dallon is, please. Thanks, Internet.

anonymous asked:

IS DALLON WEARING LEATHER PANTS IN THE DIATT VID? (like when he's wearing the short sleeved button up)

Aajsjsjs idk how (ayeee pun sorry) but i only saw this ask now and I didn’t even notice it but….

I mean,,, kind of???

I swear it looks like he is but I’m not sure

At this point I’m at least 99% convinced that Dallon is indeed wearing leather pants in the mv but I’m gonna let y'all be the judge of that so here is the best photo I’ve got as evidence:

((this is gonna lowkey bother me for the rest of my life so if someone with an answer could come forward and take me out of this existential crisis that’ll be great thanks))

Listen to 'I Don't Know How But They Found Me'

Can we  p l e a s e  talk about how this band deserves way more appreciation and recognition? If you’ve never heard their name before, now you have no excuse cause imma tell you all about them. By the time I’m done I’m sure you’ll adore them as much as I do.

So, a bit of context for starters: ‘I Don’t Know How But They Found Me’ is an American duo, composed by lead singer and bassist Dallon Weekes, and Ryan Seaman on the drums and backing vocals.

The main concept behind this project portrays IDKHBTFM as a “band out of time”, as explained on their website: “One who faded away into obscurity after struggling to find success in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Only recently, the internet has begun to uncover the performances and recordings of a band that the world wasn’t ready for. Perhaps the world is ready now…”

If you were to ask me to explain why I love them so much, there’s of course tons of reasons. They’re kind people. They’re exceptionally talented musicians, yet down-to-earth and humble individuals. They have the courage to pursue their dream, no matter how hard to achieve it may seem. They keep their live performances simple and focus on the music itself. The band’s way to present themselves in social media is pretty cryptic and mysterious, which in my opinion is really clever because it keeps everyone on their toes and paying attention. At least, I know I am.

Sadly, they have yet to release their first album, fact that has thousands of fans - myself included - waiting eager and impatiently. I don’t know what record labels are thinking that they haven’t offered them a deal yet but, c’mon people, wake up!

Anyways, to finish this post I’d like to list a few of my favourite songs on this band’s setlist.

Must include classic live performances opener and unreleased track ‘Nobody Likes The Opening Band’. Played with no background music other than Dallon’s snapping fingers, it serves the purpose of warming up the crowd to start the show. As it is inferred by the title, the song addresses the topic of being an opening band and playing to an audience that usually isn’t interested. Every lyric, despite its simplicity, it’s genius and honestly just so accurate. Things like the line ‘oh unfamiliar things will make us nervous, but singing here for you gives me a purpose’ sang with high pitched and flawless voice move me every time. Follower ‘so… take pity on the opening bands, cause no one came to see them, except their mom and dad’ always makes everyone laugh.

Next is a track that has blown up so quickly, as proven by its over 1.8 million views on YouTube. Choke is the second single that IDK has released, about 2 months ago. I think what captivates the listener is the contradiction between its sound and its lyrics. The first one is upbeat and happy, while the second one is just… creepy. To the point it has made fans wonder who is it about. Sadly Dallon hasn’t spilled the tea on this one, but of course the mystery just adds to it! ;)

An old Brobecks fans favourite that has made it into the setlist is ‘Visitation Of The Ghost’. Its best feature in my opinion is the instrumental part, the always-present drums and the simple bass chord just enhance the beauty of the lyrics and blend perfectly with Weekes’ voice. The way IDK perform it live makes it so special, as they invite a fan to the stage to play the bass while Dallon steps into the crowd to sing the ‘oh my lord’ part right next to them. An unmissable track for sure!

A full video of one of their live presentations can be found right below, in case you’re interested on checking them out further.

I’ll just be over here, looking forward to their album release and patiently awaiting for them to start touring and conquer the planet.

And of course, I wish them nothing but success and all the love in the world!
