Los Angeles, CA (December 17, 2009) – CITY AND COLOUR, the solo project of Juno Award-winning, Canadian singer-songwriter Dallas Green, announces the January 12 release of Live at The Verge digital single. The single features City and Colour performing “Forgive Me” from Bring Me Your Love (02/08, Vagrant/Dine Alone) and a solo acoustic cover of Alexisonfire’s “Boiled Frogs.” Green also serves as Alexisonfire’s guitarist and vocalist. The tracks can be purchased together or separately and were recorded in February 2008 for Canada’s XM satellite radio show, Live at The Verge.
City and Colour will be embarking on a US headlining tour beginning January 7, in Washington, DC at the 9:30 Club. Several dates on the tour have already sold out, including the final stop in Los Angeles at the Henry Fonda Theatre on January 23. City and Colour’s last headlining US tour, in January ’09, was entirely sold out – Including a two-night stand at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom. Prior to that, in October 2008, City and Colour supported Tegan and Sara on their American national tour.
City and Colour is touring in support of Bring Me Your Love. Released in February 2008, it was selected by iTunes as one of the “Best Albums of 2008” and by MySpace as one of “50 Albums You Should Know in 2008.”
These rare US dates will give fans an opportunity to hear a few new City and Colour songs as well as tracks fromSometimes (City and Colour’s debut album) and Bring Me Your Love which Billboard called “warm and more intimate” and Alternative Press praised for “picture-perfect imagery and a brutal honesty that throws back to a time when talent meant skills, not studio trickeries… an inspiring album.”
