City of Caterpillar


Richmond, VA

Over a dozen years after disbanding, the long defunct City of Caterpillar have returned for a handful of reunion shows. 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 on Repeater Records. Vice’s music outlet Noisey recently revisited the group in a lengthy retrospective feature, saying that City of Caterpillar “encompassed an era” and “strangled…stretched, and mutated screamo until it reflected both the shattering chaos and the eerie quietude of its time”.
