The fallout continues from last year's bloody confrontation between troops from the Israel Defense Forces and activists aboard a Turkish aid flotilla bound for the Gaza coast.

City and Colour is the alias of Canadian Dallas Green, a Juno Award recipient who is known for his work with the post-hardcore band Alexisonfire. He released his first solo record in 2005 under the name City and Colour, a spinoff of his own name: Dallas, a city, and Green, a color. (Maybe he created this moniker to dispel any confusion that might arise for baseball fans — Green was named for the former Philadelphia Phillies manager, whose team won the World Series around the time Green was born.)
