City and Colour, acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Dallas Green, recently unveiled two never-before released songs, “Peaceful Road” and “Rain”, recorded in Nashville during sessions for his #1 album, If I Should Go Before You (2015). Both tracks are now available to purchase and stream worldwide on all digital and retail platforms HERE. The release is available on limited edition 12” black vinyl (cut at 45rpm) via the Dine Alone Store HERE and City and Colour store HERE.

Green recently announced an extensive solo Canadian tour for 2017. “An Evening with City and Colour – Solo” kicks off in Courtenay, BC on April 1 and wraps up in Corner Brook, NL on May 16 (full routing below). The 28-date tour is currently sold out with just a handful of tickets available in some markets. Visit cityandcolour.com for more information.
City and Colour is working with Plus1 to collect $1 from the sale of each ticket that will be donated to Canada’s music education charity MusiCounts (Band Aid Program). The Band Aid Program equips school music programs with the necessities to give students the chance to discover their talent, empowering them with skills that will help them excel both in the classroom and beyond.
City and Colour is undeniably one of the biggest groundswell stories to emerge from Canada. Green’s achievements include 3 JUNO Awards — including two SONGWRITER OF THE YEAR awards (2009, 2012), 7  Platinum-certified albums and 3 Gold-certified albums in Canada (City and Colour, Alexisonfire, and You+Me). Green’s latest and 5th City and Colour studio release, If I Should Go Before You (Dine Alone Records) debuted #1 on the Top 200 Soundscan, his third consecutive chart-topper in Canada. The LP also made serious waves internationally debuting at #16 on the U.S. Billboard 200 Chart and #5 in Australia where Green’s LP Little Hell went GOLD. In 2014, Green collaborated with international superstar Alecia Moore (aka P!nk) on a new project titled You+Me. The duo’s acclaimed debut, rose ave., debuted at #4 on the U.S. Top 200 Chart, #1 in Canada, #2 in Australia culminating in memorable performances on Ellen and Jimmy Kimmel Live. Having performed to countless sold-out crowds around the world, City and Colour recently headlined his first arena tour across Canada, including 2 sold out, consecutive nights at Molson Canadian Amphitheatre in Toronto.
