News: Dilly Dally announce first UK tour, share “Purple Rage” video

Toronto punks Dilly Dally transform into a violet swamp monster for their new video, and have announced details of their debut UK tour.

The second track to be unleashed from debut album Sore (the first being “Desire“), the video for “Purple Rage” sees frontwoman Katie Monks as a mystical, miserable creature in downtown Toronto.

“Rage is a very surreal, and grotesque emotion, so for the video we wanted my character to embody that,” Monks explains. “What I was amazed with was the huge amount of people who kept trying to interrupt what we were trying to do.”

“I stopped being another human being walking around downtown Toronto,” she continues. “I became an invitation for mean comments, dirty looks, terrible jokes, horrible screams, the list goes on. This video captures some of those moments, and tells a story about a gross monster who just doesn’t fit in.”

Alongside the video, Dilly Dally have announced their first ever UK tour, with eight shows set to take place next January.

Sore is released via Partisan Records and Buzz Records on 9 October.
