today. Produced by three-time

always think of the relationships in my life that have been fractured because I
ended up doing what I do for a living,” says Green regarding the inspiration
for the new song. “I’m always gone, wandering around and singing songs.
However, it weighs on my family and friends. I’m asking for ‘one more year’. I
left home at 21 to go play my guitar. It’s lonely, but it’s because I yearn to
wander. I’m aware of how lucky I am.”
A North American tour was also announced today
alongside previously announced summer festivals. A Canadian arena tour kicks off in Victoria, BC on
November 8 and
ends on the opposite coast in Halifax on November 29. Each ticket, purchased online, for the
Canadian tour includes the choice of a digital or physical CD copy of the
forthcoming full-length album. Purchasers will receive instructions via email
upon ticket purchase, detailing how to redeem the album. Joining City and
Colour as support is Nigerian-born British singer-songwriter Jacob Banks, and B.C. based songwriter
Ben Rogers, the first signing to Green’s Still Records.
A U.S. run kicks off October 9 and features 2 back-to-back nights in Nashville, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston and New York. One night in each city will take place in a seated theatre, featuring Green performing an intimate solo show with stripped-down iterations of songs spanning his award-winning catalogue – something fans have been requesting for years. The additional night in each city will take place in general admission rock venues and feature Green performing with his full touring band. Supporting City and Colour in the U.S. will be Ben Rogers (solo shows) and alternative singer-songwriter Ruby Waters (full band shows). In keeping with Green’s penchant for showcasing emerging artists that he believes strongly in, he personally chose both Rogers and Waters as openers.
and Colour has partnered with PLUS1 for all North American tour dates. $1 from
every ticket sold in Canada will be donated to both MusiCounts & Indspire. $1 from every ticket sold in U.S. will be
donated to Crisis Text Line.
City and Colour is undeniably one of the biggest groundswell stories to emerge from Canada. Over the course of five studio albums, Green has compiled a canon ripe with songs born of adoration and devotion amassing a legion of fans worldwide and garnering him 3 JUNOs, including two SONGWRITER OF THE YEAR awards, plus 3 Double Platinum, 1 Platinum, and 1 Gold certification at home in Canada. Alongside these accomplishments, Green has been awarded four Platinum-certified studio albums as a member of Alexisonfire. City and Colour’s last studio album If I Should Go Before You debuted at #1, 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 was certified GOLD. In 2014, Green collaborated with international superstar Alecia Moore (aka P!nk) on a new project titled You+Me. The duo’s acclaimed Platinum-certified first record, rose ave., debuted at #4 on the U.S. Top 200 Chart, #1 in Canada, #2 in Australia culminating in memorable performances on The Ellen Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live. In addition to widespread commercial success, If I Should Go Before You received critical acclaim from notable international media.
