City and Colour

Splendour ‘hump day’ will host another incredible lineup of great acts with one of the major highlights being City and Colour, also known as Dallas Green (get it? city/colour) – the Juno-award-winning singer/guitarist for the Canadian post-hardcore band Alexisonfire.

Green began recording as City and Colour in 2005 and has experienced huge success both on the charts and the road. Released in 2013 his fourth LP, The Hurry and The Harm, went straight to Number 1 in Canada and all three previous studio albums have achieved platinum status there too, while Little Hell is also now gold in Australia. Little Hell also debuted at Number 1 on Canada’s Top 200 Chart, Number 28 in the US, Number 2 in Australia and Top 40 in the UK.

Known for delivering on stage, every one of City and Colour’s 2011 and 2012 shows sold out, including the famed Royal Albert Hall, a two-night stay at the Roundhouse in London and New York’s Terminal 5. He’s just played to crowds at Coachella and he’s coming our way for Splendour!

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
