Caught in a Trap

N.Y. hardcore punk act, Caught in a Trap, released its sophomore full-length, Goodnight New York, late last month on Dead City Records. The new record is now available for digital download on iTunes at:


Goodnight New York can still be purchased online through the Dead City web-store at:


“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 Thornz) at Night Owl Studios late last year.

To celebrate the release of Goodnight New York, Caught in a Trap will play a record release show this weekend, Sunday, March 2, at Grand Victory in Brooklyn, N.Y. with fellow Dead City Records mates, Yuppicide. More info online here:

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 entering the studio with Don Fury (Agnostic Front, Sick Of It All) to record 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.
