City and Colour embark on world tour, set to make their network television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

This amazing album was in my year-end top 10 (see it elsewhere on this blog). See the latest news below...
City and Colour will make their network television debut next Monday, Jan. 11 on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” The band will perform their single, “Lover Come Back,” which is currently #13 on the AAA Radio chart. Watch the official music video for the song here.

“Lover Come Back” is from City and Colour’s acclaimed new album, If I Should Go Before You, which recently debuted at #16 on the Billboard 200 Chart, #3 on the Vinyl Albums Chart and #4 on the Independent Albums Chart. Available now on Dine Alone Records (iTunes, Amazon,, the album also debuted at #1 in Canada (the band’s third consecutive chart-topper) and #5 in Australia.

After performing countless shows worldwide, including recent sold-out dates at L.A.’s Palladium, NYC’s Terminal 5 and Nashville’s War Memorial Auditorium, City and Colour (aka world-renowned singer, songwriter and performer Dallas Green), will continue to tour throughout the U.S. this month followed by extensive European, Australian and Canadian tours. See below for complete details.

Recorded at Nashville, Tennessee’s Blackbird Studios, If I Should Go Before You was produced by Green with additional production and engineering by Karl “Horse” Bareham. Unique to this project, the studio players on If I Should Go Before You are made up of Green’s trusted touring band: Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs, Dead Weather) on bass, Dante Schwebel (Spanish Gold, Dan Auerbach) on guitar, Doug MacGregor (Constantines) on drums and Matt Kelly on pedal steel guitar and keys.

Of the album and recording process, Dallas comments, “They inspired me to want to create new music, just to create it with them—I don’t think I wrote these songs for the band, per se, but I certainly wrote them because of the band.” He goes on to add, “Anybody who has seen us play will understand that this is the best representation of what we do live that we have ever recorded. I was so excited about being able to make and record an album with these guys that it just flowed. I felt so confident about their abilities to make all of my ideas come true.”

If I Should Go Before You is Green’s fifth release as City and Colour and follows 2013’s The Hurry and The Harm. Most recently, in 2014, Green collaborated with international superstar Alecia Moore (aka P!nk) on a new project, entitled 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 and #6 in Germany.
