In this episode, frontman Hunter Young joins us to discuss his history in the heavy music scene, his upcoming tour with Cane Hill, the passing of a pet that inspired the album's title track, and how his band isn't here to tell you everything's OK. Plus, the highly entertaining genre title he gives his band. Check out Moodring's new singles, as well as their debut EP.

This week, we're scratching The Itch to celebrate! We started this podcast two months into the pandemic, and here we are 2 years and 100 episodes later having a blast and feeling so much gratitude towards the listeners and friends we've encountered along the way. We had a handful of ideas for how to celebrate, most of them interviews, and we just kept running into roadblocks and frustrations. And you came to our rescue. In this episode, we turn the "rapid fire" questions from our interview episodes towards ourselves and our listeners, leading to some surprising revelations and a TON of music recommendations. Which, for the past 19 years, is really what it's all about. Enjoy. Speaking of which, follow our New Rock Roundup playlist for brand new rock tracks every Friday, and don't forget to connect with us! itchrocks.com Twitter.com/itchrocks Facebook.com/itchrocks Instagram.com/itchrocks itchrocks@gmail.com Thank you so much for listening.

This week, we're scratching The Itch to finally give Papa Roach the full episode they deserve. We've mentioned Jacoby Shaddix and the gang in so many episodes that we felt it was time to sit down and give them the whole spotlight. And not a moment too soon, because their new album Ego Trip is definitely worth a conversation. So join us to discuss the band's history, our connections, and how they've weathered the storm of rock's trends. Enjoy!

This week, we're scratching The Itch to throw on our letterman jackets and go VRSTY. Frontman Joey Varela joins the show to talk about telling his own story on their new album Welcome Home, how a metalhead became an R&B vocalist, and how sometimes the best ideas arrive while you're not wearing pants. He's a genuine and humble dude and we think you'll like getting to know him. After that, The Itch closes the show by sharing our experience seeing Joey and VRSTY on tour with 10 Years and Black Map. Chaos ensued. Enjoy.

This week, we're scratching The Itch to celebrate Record Store Day! The guys took a minute to appreciate the world of vinyl by making their own hypothetical shopping lists for RSD 2022.

This week, we're scratching The Itch to wax nostalgic! 2002 was the year that all three members of The Itch graduated high school and became radio students in together in college. It was formative, transitional... and full of great rock. KC, Dan, and Aaron each picked three albums to represent the year, and collectively agreed on a tenth to represent the group. Enjoy a trip 20 years in the past as The Itch celebrates some rock anniversaries!

This week, we're scratching The Itch for death and darkness! The Dead Deads and The Darkness, that is. Our friend Daisy Dead returns to chat about their current tour, and it's a lot of laughs. We'll talk nicknames, giant rats, and jokes that are so bad they're great. Or possibly still bad. You decide. Then The Itch checks in with our experience at the St Louis tour stop at Pop's, where we attempted to deliver a birthday card and ended up seeing Justin Hawkins lead the crowd... with his pecs? You gotta hear it.

Taylor Hawkins' passing shocked the entire music world. A man who not only made music that people loved, but who exuded energy and light, suddenly gone. This week we're scratching an Itch we never want to have to, but we're not doing it alone. Our friend Brian Colburn of Playlist Wars joins us to revisit some of our favorite Taylor performances with Foo Fighters, which you can listen to here. Along the way, we'll hear from fellow podcast friends Podioslave, TrawlCast, Prisoners of Rock and Roll, and the Infectious Groove with their tributes to a legend. And to close the show, we've got a very special performance from Blacktop Mojo's recent performance in St. Louis. We're grateful for Taylor, we miss him, and we hope this does him proud. We'd love to connect with you, hear your feedback, and talk music with you! itchrocks.com Twitter.com/itchrocks Facebook.com/itchrocks Instagram.com/itchrocks itchrocks@gmail.com Thank you so much for listening.

This week, we're scratching The Itch for a roundup! Our first one of the year, in fact. KC, Dan, and Aaron have each brought a new rock album from the first quarter of 2022 to the table, and now it's time to sell you on why you should hear it! KC's choice, The Violent, released their long-awaited debut EP on March 11. Dan's choice, VRSTY, dropped the album Welcome Home back in January, and Aaron's choice, Bloodywood, released the album Rakshak in February. Enjoy!

This week, we're scratching The Itch to meet a longtime virtual friend! Kaz, host of The Heavy Rock Show on East London Radio, joins us face to screen to face for the first time to discuss UK rock, music journalism, and her new gig with Emerging Rock Bands! Along the way we'll spotlight some of these emerging artists, taking a deeper dive into Kaz's interview with Malxolm Brixkhouse and her love for Black Lakes and their debut album For All We've Left Behind.

This week, we're scratching The Itch to head back out to shows! Black Stone Cherry, whose album The Human Condition ranked #9 on our Top Albums of 2020, recently hit the road with Naked Gypsy Queens, and they made a stop in St Louis at the Red Flag. Dan and KC were in attendance at their first show of the year, and they're stoked to give you the rundown. Plus, enjoy another instance of pretentious music industry elitism!

This week, we're scratching The Itch for tradition! It's March Bandness week! Last year's tournament was won by industry mainstays Nonpoint, and this year we have a lineup of rising rock stars battling for your love! The first round polls will be open for your vote for 48 hours on Twitter starting right after this episode is released, continuing until next Monday when we announce the winner! And what does that winner receive, you ask? The victorious emerging artist who emerges victorious will be the subject of a future episode of The Itch as an interview, deep dive, or discussion with a special guest. We'll probably also announce them as the 2022 March Bandness winner every Sunday night on the radio from here until eternity. Also, a couple of weeks ago we started a side conversation that quickly turned into half an episode's worth of talk about industry elitism, social media sensitivity, and why we do what we do. It also inspired part of the March Bandness field, so we've included it here for your listening pleasure. Enjoy!

This week, we're scratching The Itch to explore the music industry! We're joined by the ever-dynamic Amy Sciarretto, founder of Atom Splitter PR. Amy has played a huge role in the development of numerous bands in the rock/metal world, including Slipknot and Killswitch Engage. She's interviewed everyone from Maynard James Keenan to Henry Rollins to... Leonardo DiCaprio? (And you have to hear her hot take on him!) We'll hear stories from her career, get tips on how to make the magic happen, and even quiz her with a few fictional new bands to promote. Plus... we'll be interrupted by a bulldog. Enjoy!

Happy Twosday! This week, we're scratching The Itch for an anniversary! Or in our case, an Itchiversary! Today mark's 18 years to the day of The Itch's debut on KCLC-FM at our Lindenwood University stomping grounds. Now that the show is a legal adult, we figured it was a good time to share some amusing stories of its founding and the ways we so often overcomplicated something so simple: our love for music. Along the way we'll revisit the first show's playlist from 2004, and each of the guys will share three bands we championed at the time and three that we're riding hard for today. We sincerely thank everyone who has listened to us, whether on the air or via podcast. And we hope you enjoy this bit of public nostalgia... before we get back to the interviews.

This week, we're scratching The Itch to talk dreadbeards! When last we spoke with Nonpoint guitarist Jason Zeilstra, the band had just announced the formation of their new label, 361 Degrees Records, and released "Ruthless", the first original track since Jason joined the band. Now, they've released the Ruthless EP, a music video for "Back in the Game", and finally got to tour behind their new music. Jason joins us to talk about all of these experiences, tips for proper haircare, and his favorite arcade games. Plus, we finally get the rundown on the long-awaited Shiprocked cruise.

This week, we're scratching The Itch to talk with a Texan! Well, he is now anyway. We're talking with Matt James, vocalist of Blacktop Mojo, a rising rock band that put out one of our top albums of 2021. They've got a new single out, a new tour, and a new family member on the way. We'll cover all of that, a fascinating choice of dream collaborators, a bus driver called Chicken Biscuit, and the worst co-worker Matt's ever had (and no, those last two are not the same). Enjoy! Before or after this episode, we encourage you to check out Blacktop Mojo's videos for "Wicked Woman" and "Come Get Your Coat". You won't regret either.

This week, we're scratching the itch for awards! We made the nominations, you chose the winners. The 2021 Itch Awards are here, and we're celebrating our favorite debuts, breakthroughs, comebacks, workhorses, EPs, and singles of the year... and taking a quick peek into 2022.

This week, we're scratching the itch for a list! And not just any list, but our collective (and slightly contentious) list of the Top 10 Rock Albums of 2021. After so many bands put a pause on album releases in 2020 since they couldn't tour behind them, 2021 felt like someone took the cap off of a shaken up bottle of delicious Dr. Pepper and great music just exploded everywhere. Or something. Anyway, these albums rocked all of the face and should be immediately added to your listening rotation... if they haven't already. Let us know how much you love these albums, or if we missed some albums you loved! Also, the votes are in for the seven categories of the 2021 Itch Awards! Stay tuned later this week as we learn live during the recording exactly which of our nominees you chose!
