NEWS: Weaves announce new UK tour with Dilly Dally

After releasing their rollicking self-titled debut album earlier in the year, Toronto alt-rock four piece Weaves are heading back to the UK in September for another tour around the country.  They’re not venturing out alone, though.  The band will be joined by fellow Canadians and riotous punks Dilly Dally.

Weaves’ frontwoman Jasmyn Burke talked about the punk band: “One thing I love about their music and live show is the urgency to get things out.  Their music is raw and aggressive but also melodic and welcoming, a trait that is unique to their sound.  Katie [Monks] knows what she wants and delivers this erosion-like slur to her singing and guitar playing.  I feel like she has the ability to rip out my insides and tie them to a tree for swinging on or something.  Emotional.”

Meanwhile, Dilly Dally’s Katie Monks spoke about her connection with Weaves: “As with all the best bands I know, you have to earn your fanhood.  Or rather, they have to earn it for you.  I get the chills from how in control she is of her own vision, and her very distinct connection to the audience…  Hands down, one of my favourite bands right now, and all of Dilly Dally is equally as pumped to hit the road with our special buds this Sept.

The tour will take place not long after the bands have made appearances at End of the Road Festival in September.  Details below.
