Toronto’s Dilly Dally have confirmed a North American headline tour for 2019 beginning March 18 behind their new record, Heaven, out now via Dine Alone. Full tour dates below with tickets on sale on November 16.

The band has also shared a new animated music video for Marijuana, directed by Andrew Knives. A subject matter particularly close to the band’s heart, and especially relevant following the recent legalization of cannabis in Canada, singer/guitarist Katie Monks says:

“We’ve been inhaling so much fear and hate from our televisions, our leaders, social media…I don’t know about you, but the anxiety and eventual depression became overbearing.

The only way I could keep functioning, and get through writing this record, was with some assistance from weed. Basically, if I didn’t write anything good by sun down – I would smoke sativa for good measure. It would clear my creative pathways, help me forget about the expectations of others, and almost hide away in my own protective energy field.

Legalization in Canada is one tiny step toward an uphill battle of reconciliation with all of our citizens – primarily people of color – who for decades have been arrested unfairly for dealing, possession, etc. There are still many laws prohibiting how we’re able to access, consume, and sell cannabis.

So while we still have a long way to go – I’m happy to contribute a song that may perhaps help shed off the stigma that weed is anything other than a sacred tool that many cultures cherish. It needs to be respected.”
