Formed in St. Catharines, Ontario in 2004

City (Dallas) And Colour (Green) started as a side-project for the Alexisonfire singer/guitarist who decided to release some of his earliest written material (between the age of 14 and 18) on the Internet to gauge reaction from fans.

In 2005 he gathered the bulk of these tracks - some of which were issued as EPs on his Dine Alone label - and reworked them into a full length release entitled 'Sometimes'.

His follow-up release, 2008's 'Bring Me Your Love', was also related stateside following the MySpace popularity of the lead off single "Waiting...". With the addition of Spencer Burton and Daniel Romano as Green's backing band, City And Colour embarked on its first American tour.

Initially they performed in support of Tegan And Sara and Girl in a Coma. City And Colour then headlined a US tour starting in January 2009 and for the next year continued to support the success of 'Bring Me Your Love' with a second US headlining tour in January 2010. In the summer of 2010 they went to the UK tour as opening act for P!nk and Butch Walker.

City And Colour grew so popular that in 2010 Green hinted he would be leaving Alexisonfire after his commitments were complete. In August 2011, he officially quit to make City And Colour his full-time pursuit as he couldn't juggle the schedules of both acts.
