City and Colour, acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Dallas Green has announced his 6th studio album A Pill for Loneliness due out on October 4 on Green’s newly minted Still Records, an imprint of Dine Alone Records. The album is the highly anticipated follow-up to City and Colour’s #1 selling album If I Should Go Before You (2015), A Pill for Loneliness is produced by three-time Grammy-winning Jacquire King (Kings Of Leon, Tom Waits, Modest Mouse, Norah Jones) and mastered by Emily Lazar (Beck, Coldplay, Dolly Parton, The Chainsmokers), the first female mastering engineer to win a Grammy for best engineered album (2019).

Alongside previously released tracks, “Astronaut” and “Strangers”, Green debuts new song and album opener, “Living In Lightning”.
Over the course of five studio albums, Green has compiled a canon ripe with songs amassing a legion of fans worldwide. With this 6th full-length album, Green siphons serenity from stress through a kaleidoscope of lush guitars, ethereal orchestration, and heavenly delivery over eleven tracks that illuminate an entrancing emotional expanse, balancing two extremes with eloquence and energy.
“I wrote a lot of dark songs and wrapped them in the most beautiful sounds we could find,” Green explains. “There are personal connotations, but they’re also relatable. I’m thankful for the opportunity to create.”
A U.S. tour kicks off October 9 and features 2 back-to-back nights in Nashville, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston and New York. One night in each city will take place in a seated theatre, featuring Green performing an intimate solo show – something fans have been requesting for years. The additional night in each city will take place in general admission rock venues and feature Green performing with his full touring band. Supporting City and Colour in the U.S. will be Ben Rogers (solo shows) and alternative singer-songwriter Ruby Waters (full band shows). In keeping with Green’s penchant for showcasing emerging artists that he believes strongly in, he personally chose both Rogers and Waters as openers.
City and Colour has partnered with PLUS1 for all North American tour dates. $1 from every ticket sold in U.S. will be donated to Crisis Text Line.
