Over a dozen years after disbanding, the long defunct CITY OF CATERPILLAR announce a string of reunion shows for early 2017. The quartet initially formed in Richmond, Virginia in 2000, carving out a handful of demos and EPs before releasing their sole, self-titled album in 2002. Renown for an innovative combination of punk rock, emotional hardcore and dramatic instrumental crescendos, CITY OF CATERPILLAR disbanded in late 2003 but went on to endure a postmortem legacy shared by few of their peers.
In 2015, renewed interest in the band grew with digital reissues of their LP and Demo + Live Recording collection, followed by a 2016 vinyl reissue of the landmark self-tited LP.
Performing for the first time in 13 years with their classic lineup of Brandon Evans (guitar/vocals), Kevin Longendyke (bass/vocals), Jeff Kane (guitar) and Ryan Parrish (drums), CITY OF CATERPILLAR have scheduled four East Coast shows with a slew of longtime friends’ bands supporting:
