City and Colour, the Canadian singer-songwriter born Dallas Green, has revealed plans for a headlining tour in support of his forthcoming album, The Hurry and the Harm. The fall trek will kick off in Massachusetts with a show at Boston’s Orpheum Theatre on Saturday, September 14. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $29.50 to $39.50, are now on sale through Ticketmaster. For each ticket purchased, fans will receive a digital download of the new album upon release date and a bonus live version of the song ‚ÄúNorthern Wind”.

The Hurry and the Harm, City and Colour’s fourth studio effort and follow-up to 2011’s Little Hell is scheduled for release on June 4. Recorded at Nashville, Tennessee’s Blackbird Studios during the fall/winter of 2013, the new album was produced once again by Alex Newport (At The Drive-In, Death Cab for Cutie). In addition to Green, the album features Jack Lawrence on bass (The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather), Bo Koster on keys (My Morning Jacket), Matt Chamberlain (Pearl Jam, Fiona Apple) and James Gadson (Bill Withers, BB King) on drums and Spencer Cullum (Caitlin Rose) on pedal steel. Fans can get a taste of The Hurry and the Harm with its lead single “Thirst”, which is streaming below.

“I don’t have a lot of faith in myself, so it is hard for me to have a lot of faith in something I have created,” said Green of the new album in a press release. “But I’ve never been happier or prouder about something that I have done.”

The upcoming shows will feature a brand new touring band including Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs, Dead Weather) on bass, Dante Schwebel (Hacienda, Dan Auerbach) on guitar, Doug MacGregor (Constantines) on drums and Matt Kelly on pedal steel guitar and keys.
