Driving Spain Up A Wall

by City Of Caterpillar

  • Record/Vinyl

    All records come with a digital DL and with heavy TIP ON sleeves

    850 copies on black & 150 copies on Swamp Green

    Repeater Records and Adagio830 Records are proud to announce that they are jointly releasing City Of Caterpillar’s highly sought after song “Driving Spain Up A Wall” as a 12” EP. This 11 minute epic was never properly recorded during the band’s initial existence and only a few live recordings of the song from 2002 – 2003 have existed up until now. “Driving Spain Up A Wall” has been a long awaited missing piece of the band’s discography, but was recently recorded in their hometown of Richmond, VA and was mixed and mastered by Jack Shirley at The Atomic Garden Studio. The B-Side of the 12” also includes the track “As The Curtains Dim (little white lie)”, which was originally recorded during the same sessions as City Of Caterpillar’s self titled LP in 2002, but has never been released on vinyl. Both songs on this 12” brilliantly capture the restrained and explosive intensity that City Of Caterpillar helped to define as a sound in the early 00’s, merging the styles of post-rock and shoegaze with punk and hardcore. This 12” will be out this summer to coincide with City Of Caterpillar’s first European tour and more U.S. shows in the Fall of 2017. The 12” will be released in the U.S. by Repeater Records and in Europe via Adagio830 Records.

  • CITY OF CATERPILLAR - Discography 2CD
    Compact Disc (CD)

    2CD that sums up the career of City Of Caterpillar that is the existence that represents US EMO of the 2000s is released from 3LA in the form of the complete edition discography!

    The period of City Of Caterpillar's activity was short, 2000-2003, but they established their own sound that expresses beauty in the dynamics of stillness and movement and intense hardcore as originality while inheriting the essence of the important band of the dawn of the underground at that time, Indian Summer, Portraits of Past, Maximillian Colby, Sleepytime Trio, etc. in the 1990's, and became a big influence on Screamo/Post-Hardcore after the 2000's. Even after their inactivity, the members have played in Pg. 99, Malady, Majority Rule, Darkest Hour, and various other bands (some of which were working in parallel) that have contributed significantly to shaping the scene. Although there are many long songs, they are not redundant, but express a fantastic world while changing the scenery little by little, and at the same time, the ensemble of sound with a sense of breakdown and intense passion, the way in which the emotions that can be called "passion" itself explode is overwhelming even now, and both past and present songs have been mastered and reconstructed with a sound quality that does not feel uncomfortable. This album will not only revisit their history, but it will also be a different sound source for listeners who have come into contact with the band for the first time, as well as those who have come into contact with the band's music in the past.
