City and Colour will return in 2019 with new music and a fall tour. Founder Dallas Green and company have released a new single and video "Astronaut" in conjunction with the announcement of a huge trek through the U.S. and Canada, which will run from mid-October through late November.
The Alexisonfire co-founder unveiled the news on June 3 via Facebook. "Astronaut" is the Canuck alt-rockers first new music since the release of the 2015 studio release If I Should Go Before You and is the lead single from an as-yet-untitled album, which will drop this fall via Still Records/Dine Alone.
The multi-Juno winner will perform both solo and full band gigs during the fall romp with special two-night engagements in Nashville, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston and New York. Ruby Waters, Jacob Banks and Ben Rogers will appear as openers on select dates
