BackgroundEdit

Members Felix Snow and David "Campa" Benjamin Singer-Vine met through Twitter in 2014 and first worked together on a project called Momma, releasing a 4 track EP.https://soundcloud.com/mommmmmmmmmma [7] They reconnected the following year working with singer Kiiara on her single "Gold". In 2016, they started Terror Jr as a "social experiment", with Singer-Vine adding "It's a puzzle, and we're gonna give out pieces with each song."[1] The group released their debut extended play Bop City on October 21, 2016.[8]

In November 2016, Kylie Jenner was rumored to be the lead singer of Terror Jr.[9] Jenner denied being a part of the group in a Snapchat post on November 9, 2016.[10]

Terror Jr released the song "Heartbreaks" through their YouTube channel on November 24, 2016.[11] On February 14, 2017, the group released a remix package of "Come First".[2]

In May 2017, the group released "Caramel" and "Death Wish" as the first two songs from Bop City 2: TerroRising, released on June 16, 2017.[12][13]

On September 8, 2017, Terror Jr released a new single "Holding Your Tongue". The single was quickly followed by the announcement of the group's third LP, Bop City 3: The Girl Who Cried Purple, released September 29, 2017.[14] They released the song "Sad Sad Girl" in December 2017.[15]

In 2018, they released the singles "Heaven Wasn't Made For Me" and "A-OK (Everything's Perfect)".[16][17]

Their debut album Unfortunately, Terror Jr was released on January 25, 2019.[18] That same year, the duo departed Atlantic Records. On October 4, they released the single "9 2 5". On November 8, 2019, the group released the EP Come Outside and Break Your Heart, their first release under their own label, Grape Music.[19] On November 13, 2020, they released the EP Bloody Waters.[20] Three days later, they announced on their social media that their upcoming album, Rancho Catastrophe, would be released later that week on November 20.[21]
