NOT TO LATE TO GRAB – CITY AND COLOUR “NOWHERE, TEXAS” to support YWCA ROSE CAMPAIGN to End Violence Against Women

city and colour City and Colour has just released a new song titled “Nowhere, Texas”.  The never-before-released track will be available to purchase digitally worldwide today via Dine Alone Records at the following link: http://geni.us/nowheretexas.  All profits will be donated to the YWCA of Canada’s Rose Campaign.

Dallas Green was inspired to write the song after watching the American crime film “Texas Killing Fields”. The film’s screenplay was inspired by true events surrounding the murders of several women near Interstate 45 in the Texas City, Texas area.  Green couldn’t shake the real story of a lonely road that became the final resting place of dozens of missing women.

“I recorded ‘Nowhere, Texas’ during a session for The Hurry and The Harm. I knew as soon as I listened to it, there was a better place for the song than the album. I’ve held on to it all this time and chose to release it as a way to bring attention to something around us everyday: violence against women.”

Rose CampaignDecember 6 marks the 25-year anniversary of the École Polytechnique Massacre, also known as the Montreal Massacre.  On this day in 1989, 14 women were murdered and another 14 people were injured at the hands of a single gunman who targeted women claiming he was “fighting feminists”.  December 6 is now observed as Canada’s National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.
