City And Colour Return With New Single And North American Tour Announcement

Today, acoustic alternative act City And Colour resurrected with a new song and a series North American tour dates. The band is Dallas Green’s solo project, and has been relatively inactive since 2015’s If I Should Go Before You, aside from a live album.

On social media, City And Colour introduced the new song titled Astronaut with some background:

Dallas also continued to say, “I always think of the relationships in my life that have been fractured because I ended up doing what I do for a living. 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.”

The single is ambient and thoughtful, as per usual. It’s a six minute journey with a lot of twists and turns, and it ends with a climactic guitar solo. It's available to stream now.

The tour will traverse through the U.S. and Canada this fall, as well as a few festivals this summer. The festival dates are as shown below:
