CITY OF CATERPILLAR "Driving Spain Up A Wall" 12" EP's will be here next week








07/14/17:
City of Caterpillar today unveil the long-awaited recording of their previously-unreleased song 'Driving Spain Up A Wall'.


Noisey is now premiering the track in a lengthy feature, stating the recording "showcase[s] the undeniable strength that City of Caterpillar possesses—the ability to wrap the listener in a sonic landscape that teeters on the edge of chaos—sweeping crescendos, fractured melody, and cinematic beauty that collapses into the harsh brutality of their punk roots."
https://noisey.vice.com/en_us/article/xwz58w/15-years-after-disbanding-city-of-caterpillar-release-studio-version-of-driving-spain-up-a-wall
Around the building legacy endured posthumously, City of Caterpillar guitarist/vocalist Brandon Evans says:
“We truly had no idea this interest was so strong and spanning ... The internet was just coming about into the common life as we disbanded. We still had this mystery that carried charm from the world just prior; I feel maybe that was a factor attributing to the cult energy that built around us, perhaps.”
As Noisey notes, 'Driving Spain Up A Wall' has been "spoken about in hyperbolic fashion.. for more than a decade". Regarding the song retaining a near-mythical status, guitarist Jeff Kane comments:
“I don’t feel like its any stronger of a song than anything that made it on the LP, but I get why it gained a reputation. It was only able to be seen live or on crummy video tape recordings that made their way online. That gave it some mystique. It was also quite long even by our standards, so if we played it at a show, it probably consumed half of our 30 minute set which is going to make it stick in the memory.”
As the band now tour Europe for the first time, 'Driving Spain Up A Wall' is woven into a setlist containing City of Caterpillar material now considered by many to be classics.

CITY OF CATERPILLAR Announce New Release, Further Tours (The Fest and California shows):        

Following a sold out run of reunions shows earlier this year, City of Caterpillar now announce their first new recording in 15 years, plus additional tours of America and Europe.

Previously unreleased, 'Driving Spain Up A Wall' was tracked earlier this year in Richmond, Virginia and NYC, then mixed by Jack Shirley at The Atomic Garden. The song has long held mystique as one of the band's most revered songs, made popular among fans from powerful live performances but not properly recording before City of Caterpillar disbanded in 2003.

This new recording will be released on a 12" EP alongside the Self-Titled outtake track 'As the Curtains Dim (Little White Lie)', which surfaced earlier this year as a digital-only single. The two-track vinyl package will be released this summer through Repeater Records & Adagio830. A digital release by The Archivist will follow.

Vinyl Pre-orders are now available:

USA - Repeater Records - http://repeaterrecords.bigcartel.com
Europe - Adagio 830 - http://adagio830.bigcartel.com

CITY OF CATERPILLAR Announce European Tour for July of 2017!


This is their first time ever in Europe! After a hugely successful 10 date reunion tour of the east coast of the US and the celebrated re-issue of their debut full length LP via Repeater records last year (originally released in 2002 on Level Plane Records), CITY OF CATERPILLAR will be touring through much of Europe in July.

City of Caterpillar’s groundbreaking full length LP was released 14 years ago along with various other releases like a split 7“ with Page 99, a ltd demo / live LP on ADAGIO830 in 2002.

They were one of the first bands to successfully merge post-rock and hardcore together, with complex and intense build-ups that led into bursts of rage and chaos, City Of Caterpillar’s short lived existence from 2000 – 2003 has had a major influence on the hardcore/punk scenes since the original release of this LP back in 2002. They were able to capture the dynamic sounds of Godspeed! You Black Emperor with bands like Portraits of Past and Pg. 99. City of Caterpillar shared members with Pg. 99 and members went onto bands such as Iron Reagan, Darkest Hour, Highness, Malady, Haram and Ghastly City Sleep.

The test pressings that we received from United didn't sound up to the quality that we and the band were hoping for, so we have scrapped them. However, the good news is that we've gotten Jack Shirley at his Atomic Garden Studios (Deafheaven, Loma Prieta, etc.) to remaster the whole album!!! The new remastered files are currently being made into test presses for a second round. We hope that despite this delay, we will still have the LP's out by late Spring 2016.


1/28/16

Test pressings for CITY OF CATERPILLAR "S/T" repress are here! We're listening to them to check quality and will post another update when they're approved. No word yet on official release date, but it's looking like Spring of 2016 still.

We are beyond excited and honored to announce that we are repressing CITY OF CATERPILLAR’s “Self Titled” full length for our next release!!!
