Already confirmed to headline Groovin’ The Moo in May, Chugg Entertainment announces today that City and Colour will be following up a hugely successful Australian tour last year with a string of headline theatre shows across the country, as well as visiting New Zealand for the first time ever. The three time platinum certified project lead by Dallas Green has become a household name within the indie music community for their distinctive fusion of folk, blues, rock, and twangs of country. What began as a hobby for a hardcore singer has evolved into one of the most praised acoustic/indie/folk acts to enter the scene in the last decade.

In addition to their appearance on the national run of Groovin’ The Moo dates in Bendigo, Townsville, Maitland, Canberra and Bunbury, City and Colour will appear in headline theatre shows at the Auckland Town Hall on Sunday 29th April for one show in New Zealand.

Fresh off of the release of his third full length album, Little Hell, Dallas Green has continued to take City and Colour in bold new directions while keeping his signature brand of indie folk intact. Gaining a strong cult following, all three full-length albums have now attained platinum certification, with ‘Fragile Bird,’ the first single off Little Hell sparking a critical frenzy upon its release with Green’s shift into grittier sonic territory and a swift jump to #1 on the Canadian rock/alternative charts. The track also held the #1 position on countless Top 50 Songs of 2011 lists.

With the release of Little Hell, Green departs from his mainly acoustically driven beginnings to include warm guitars, resonant organ and drum accompaniments in order to provide a fuller sound to the album. Tracks such as ‘Sorrowing Man’ and ‘Weightless’ showcase a more intense sound that still masterfully incorporates Green’s distinctly smooth and soulful voice. Although this is a significant change from older works, City and Colour still puts forth an album full of what Spin describes as “strangely uplifting expressions of compassion” through the melancholy and introspective lyrics that Green has made all his own.
