Caught in a Trap to release “Goodnight New York” this month on Dead City Records‏


Sophomore full-length out January 28

NEW YORK, NY – Queens, N.Y. hardcore punk act, Caught in a Trap, will release its sophomore full-length, Goodnight New York, on January 28 through Dead City Records.

“I feel like this record is our love song to New York City,” said vocalist Rich Fie. “But if you listen to love songs, they aren’t always about joy and happiness; sometimes they are about loss and despair. It’s a record that was a long time in the making. We definitely stretched out a little stylistically, but at the same time kept true to our NYC punk and NYHC roots.”

Goodnight New York was recorded with Glen Lorieo (Yuppicide, No Redeeming Social Value, Crown Of Thorns) at Night Owl Studios late last year.

Pre-orders will be available soon through the Dead City webstore at:

6. It’s Over

Caught in a Trap was formed in 2005 in Queens, N.Y., and solidified its current lineup the following year. The band released one demo before unleashing its critically acclaimed debut Rats Get Fat in 2007. On the strength of Rats Get Fat, Caught in a Trap played hundreds of shows over the next few years in N.Y. and the surrounding areas.


After over half a decade without a new album Goodnight New York was born, filled with “piss and vinegar” in response to the current political, economic and gentrification of the band’s hometown of NYC.
