News Release(March 23, 2011 -- Toronto, ON) Dallas Green will be releasing his 3rd solo album as a singer-songwriter under the moniker CITY AND COLOUR on Dine Alone Records. The album titled Little Hell is scheduled for release on June 7th, 2011 and is the highly anticipated follow-up to 2008’s Bring Me Your Love, which was certified platinum in Canada. Alternately sparse and inviting, intense and delicate, Little Hell shows music fans another side of Green’s incredible songwriting skills, and features some of his finest songs to date. The track listing for Little Hell is listed below.

Little Hell was recorded earlier this winter at Catherine North Studios in Hamilton, ON with producer/engineer/mixer Alex Newport (At The Drive-In, Mars Volta, Death Cab For Cutie). Fans got a sneak preview of a brand new track from the upcoming album when an alternate version of the song titled “Northern Wind” recently made its debut on a special Valentine’s Day episode of the hit series One Tree Hill. Green performed on the episode as part of the show’s story line.

Little Hell – named after the album’s title track, a song that explores the little heavens and little hells that comprise a relationship – is the first of Green’s albums to be recorded and mixed to tape. This sonic move ultimately resulted in the album’s warm immediacy, allowing the songs to take on spaciousness previously unheard in City and Colour albums. The record allows Green to highlight all of the facets of his songwriting, from Blues-tinged rockers to pedal steel-soaked acoustic gems. Songs like “Northern Wind” have a beautiful intimacy, as if Green is in the same room and singing right to you, while “Sorrowing Man” is dark and brooding, anchored by an ominous organ in the chorus. The record also highlights Green’s impressive vocal range, from driving a full band on the rousing chorus of “Natural Disaster” or sighing mellifluously on opener “We Found Each Other in the Dark”.

This week, City and Colour released a special EP of four songs performed live in St. David’s Church in Austin, TX. The EP titled iTunes Live: SXSW, includes a live version of “O'Sister” and is available at: http://itunes.com/cityandcolour/ituneslivesxsw-ep

City and Colour will headline the first-ever JUNO Block Party (Presented by SIRIUS Satellite Radio Canada) at Toronto’s Metro Square on March 24 in celebration of the JUNO Awards 40th Anniversary. Green -- who has won JUNO’s for ALTERNATIVE ALBUM OF THE YEAR (2007), and SONGWRITER OF THE YEAR (2009) -- also has the distinction of performing during the broadcast’s 40th Anniversary tribute performance alongside artists such as: Greg Keelor, Jim Cuddy, Justin Rutledge, Sarah Harmer and Sarah Slean on Sunday, March 27.
