Dilly Dally share new single “Purple Rage”

Dilly Dally Toronto indie rockers Dilly Dally have shared another new track from their highly anticipated debut album, Sore. The record is due out on 9th October via Partisan Records.

"Purple Rage" follows previous release "Desire", and packs on hell of a wallop! Screeching guitar lines and snarled vocals from lead singer and guitarist Katie Monks ensure we're in for a wild ride in this nail-biting power anthem.

Talking about the new track Monks says: "Anger is such a powerful emotion. This song is meant to be an anthem for channeling all the rage we have into something positive. When I have been badly hurt in the past, I am usually filled with a huge amount of energy. I always try to use that energy to make myself 'stronger' and 'tougher.' For me, that has meant working harder on the band plus my art shit, quitting cigarettes cold turkey after being a pack a day smoker, dying my hair weird colors, investing more energy into my friends...all kinds of stuff. It's kinda like you become a superhero version of yourself...and no one can fuck with you."

Sore is a dynamic debut album that rarely lets up. It's both heavy and melodic, with pop sensibilities that shine through the noise - alluding to influences such as Sonic Youth, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Distillers, and The Pogues. Monks calls Sore "all that and a bag of weed."

"Sore is an album about rebirth," she says, "hence its disgusting guitar tones and constant moaning. What can I say, happiness is a struggle, but the last thing I'd ever want you or anyone else to do is give up that fight."
