Richmond screamo legends City of Caterpillar have just shared "Mystic Sisters," the title track and second single from their first album in 20 years. It's a seven-minute song, and it spends more than half of that running time as a gentle piece of clean guitar/piano-fueled post-rock, before finally building to an explosive climax. When it does explode, it's more like sassy post-hardcore than typical screamo, but in the way that only City of Caterpillar can do. It's a very promising taste of the record, and you can hear it below.

City of Caterpillar's tour hits Brooklyn on October 2 at Saint Vitus with Foxtails and Uniform's Michael Berdan. All dates are listed below.

Mystic Sisters drops 9/30 via Relapse. Pre-order it on pink vinyl.
