City and Colour has sparked interest in their recently announced 2016 Canadian tour with the release of “Lover Come Back”, the latest single from the band’s chart-topping `If I Should Go Before You’ record release.
“Directed by Michael Maxxis, the clip features Diem Al-Jouni, a Julliard-trained dancer who lives in New Orleans, gliding through urban and pastoral landscapes in the Mississippi delta as the breezy song swells around him.” “Lover Come Back” is currently #17 on the AAA Radio chart in the U.S., while single “Wasted Love” tops the BDS Active Rock chart in Canada at #1.
Dallas Green’s tour kicks off in Kelowna on June 2, and wraps up in Montreal on June 20, 2016 (full routing below). Supporting City and Colour on the tour is Austin’s Shakey Graves. This is the first major national tour since 2014, which saw City and Colour headline Green’s biggest venues to date including a sold-out show at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.
If I Should Go Before You recentlydebuted #1 in Canada, City and Colour’s third consecutive chart-topper in our territory. In the U.S. the LP debuted at #16 on the Billboard 200 Chart, #3 on the Vinyl Albums Chart and #4 on the Independent Albums Chart and #5 in Australia. In addition to widespread commercial success, the albumcontinues to receive notable critical acclaim. The A.V. Clubcalls the album “alluring” and “breathtaking,” while AllMusic praises, “…a culmination of the sturdy pop sound he’s built up over the years that weaves through territories of dreamy indie folk, pastoral Americana, and soulful alt-rock.” Additionally, Paste Magazinedescribes the single, “Lover Come Back,” as “…a gorgeous, R&B-tinged torch song split evenly between joyous, earnest affection and yearning, lovesick sadness,” and Baeble asserts, “…reminded me how beautiful his voice can be.” The album is available now via Dine Alone Records (iTunes,cityandcolour.com).
If I Should Go Before You is Green’s fifth release as City and Colour and follows 2013’s The Hurry and The Harm.
