CITY OF CATERPILLAR announce reunion shows!

Influential Richmond, VA screamo band (2000-2003) announce early 2017 reunion shows! Read the full announcement below.
CITY OF CATERPILLAR
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.

Posthumously, Pitchfork referred to them as a band “who successfully blended abstract-rock with hardcore immediacy” while All Music elaborated “The band’s moody, sometimes spastic, sometimes brooding breed of dark rock is both well-written and timeless — spacy expressionism and straight-to-the-heart honesty. Albums of this breed only come along a few times in a genre.
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.
Vice’s music outlet Noisey recently revisited the group in a lengthy retrospective feature, saying that City of Caterpillarencompassed an era” and “strangled…stretched, and mutated screamo until it reflected both the shattering chaos and the eerie quietude of its time“.
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:
