All Good Things is a band you may not have heard of, but you probably have heard. And despite the fact that their upcoming Better Noise Music release is functionally their proper band debut, they've been churning out bangers for years. How does any of this make sense, you ask? Find out in our conversation with vocalist/guitarist/doer of mad press Dan Murphy! Along the way we'll also discuss the NHL playoffs, the band's collaboration with Hollywood Undead, and a few new details about their upcoming album. Oh, and how they just announced the biggest tour of their career... so far. Plus, this time it's Aaron's turn to say something that could (but fortunately doesn't) offend our guest!

Royal Blood recently released Typhoons, their third full-length album. In it, they move slightly away from their riffy blues rock roots into a sound that will make you tap your toes as often as you bang your head. So is that for better or worse? And is Royal Blood just repeating the trajectory of rock bands before them, and perhaps even rock radio as a whole? In this episode, The Itch will take a long and winding road to find out!

The Itch's conversation with Robb Rivera and Jason Zeilstra of Nonpoint continues!

The Itch is about to get Ruthless! Nonpoint dominated our March Bandness tournament, and then proceeded to announce not just a brand new, bangin' single, but their own independent record label, 361 Degrees! Oh, and that single was the theme for AEW's Blood and Guts match. And the band started a YouTube series chronicling their journey. And the kicker? All of those things were supposed to happen a year ago. Join us as we talk with the longest and shortest tenured members as Robb Rivera and Jason Zeilstra discuss the team effort of starting a label, and how the band has put their fate into the hands of their fanbase.

In this episode, The Itch calls back to episode 49, when we posed the question "What IS classic rock?" To help us explore (and answer?) that question, we've enlisted the help of our old radio friend Chill Pill Liz and our new friend John from the Well Disguised podcast! Along the way, we discuss new music from bands with old sounds: Dirty Honey and Greta Van Fleet! Enjoy! And hey, we've got merch now!

It's our one-year podiversary! For the 52nd episode of the show, The Itch celebrates the return of The Offspring and their long-awaited new album, Let The Bad Times Roll. Join us reminisce about the history of the band and discuss their place in the current rock landscape. And enjoy as Dan makes a painful and surprising admission and Aaron gets completely out of line to offer career advice to a band that's almost as old as he is! And hey, we've got merch now!

Maynard James Keenan of Tool & A Perfect Circle and Sonny Sandoval of P.O.D. went through similar, life-changing experiences with their mothers ... and wrote very different songs about those experiences. If you're looking for a bit of food for thought this Mother's Day, Aaron's got you covered with this bonus story. itchrocks.com Twitter.com/itchrocks Instagram.com/itchrocks Facebook.com/itchrocks itchrocks@gmail.com Thank you so much for listening.

It's almost Mother's Day! So in honor of our mothers, your mothers, and all you mothers, we're carrying on an Itch tradition with a celebration of the mamas. Join us as we talk about your mom for 45 minutes, diving in on a few of our favorite songs about moms and a few that remind us of our own. It's a journey full of humor, affection, and peach cobbler. And inquiring minds want to know: do you have a "Stacy's Mom" story? If so, drop us a voicemail, email, Tweet, or Facebook message! If it's entertaining, we might even include it in a future episode or Short Cut! itchrocks.com Twitter.com/itchrocks Facebook.com/itchrocks itchrocks@gmail.com Thank you so much for listening.

Dan's Funko Pop obsession, about which he gives Aaron and KC frequent updates in Itch episode pre-game talk, was a secret to the public until episode 50. Now, on the heels of its revelation, The Itch felt that we had no choice but to tell, piece by piece, the long, esoteric tale of Dan's other great passion. So we give to you the first chapter in this off-topic babbling: The Funko Pop Saga Prelude. Enjoy... and then tell us how ridiculous this is. itchrocks.com Twitter.com/itchrocks Facebook.com/itchrocks itchrocks@gmail.com Thank you so much for listening.

The Itch has reached a milestone! Since we try to run a (semi) professional ship, we decided to celebrate 50 episodes by releasing a collection of our LEAST professional moments! Whether it's bodily functions, Dan forgetting the intros, or Aaron's penchant for strange and distracting sounds, we hope you enjoy 35 minutes of grown men giggling while trying to talk about hard rock!

Finally, The Itch gets back to what brought us here! After playing our beloved classic rock artists weekly for 16 years on the radio, we've largely neglected them for 48 episodes of the podcast. Well, NO MORE! In this episode, we give some love to a few of the bands who taught us about talent, taste, and how to be comfortable being ourselves. Spoiler: This episode ends with a big question, and we need your help to answer it!

In this week's episode, we pondered some of the eternal questions about Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters, Nirvana, and what could've been if Kurt Cobain were still with us today. And it reminded us that we had an unused bonus chat along similar lines from alllll the way back in the recording of episode 9! So to keep the conversation going, we're sharing it with you now!

It's time to catch up on some recent rock releases! We each came to the mic with a 2021 album that's impressed and tried to sell each other on its merits! Aaron's got Teenage Wrist's Earth Is a Black Hole, KC brought Foo Fighters' Medicine at Midnight, and Dan's in with Rob Zombie's The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy. And enjoy our bonus chat about Serj Tankian's new EP, Elasticity, where we will most definitely talk about Your Mom!

The results are in, the upsets left us shook, and March Bandness is complete! Over the last month, you voted on Twitter to make a champion out of 1 of 32 bands The Itch has played often but never podcasted about.

We must'n't dwell... not on Rex Manning Day! (It's April 8th, specifically, so put that in your brain forever.) In this episode, The Itch follows through on a half-joking idea from six months ago to use the legendary Empire Records event as an excuse to talk about some of our favorite movies that rock! Join us to stroll through a series of mostly wholesome, mostly 90s rock-related films, as well as a fun game of "good film, great soundtrack" and "garbage film, great soundtrack"! And we want to make this an ongoing series, so hit us up with your own favorites so we can stock our streaming queue with enough films to do it again! itchrocks.com Twitter.com/itchrocks Facebook.com/itchrocks itchrocks@gmail.com Thank you so much for listening.

In this episode, The Itch is joined by Matty Madiro, the drummer of From Ashes to New, whose third album Panic appeared on our Top 20 Albums of 2020. Matty shares his fascinating journey from joining Trivium to becoming part of FATN, how Linkin Park changed his taste in music, and the forward-thinking business model he wants to see the rock industry embrace.

Happy St. Patty's from The Itch! We hope you enjoyed our chat with The Struggling Artist on Boston music and punk rock in episode 43. For some further Irish goodness, here's a clip we cut from episode 36 and saved specifically for this day! It's a quick tale about how Aaron's experience at a Flogging Molly concert pulled him away from his dear ones, while Dan's brought him closer to his!

SAUL's Rise As Equals was not only one of the best debut albums of 2020, but it was one of our top ten albums overall. So we were thrilled to have a chance to talk with vocalist Blake Bedsaul about making the album, being in a band with family, good nicknames for a band's fanbase, and what records are truly "all killer, no filler." Enjoy! And we've added tracks from this episode to our Flavor of the Week playlist! itchrocks.com Twitter.com/itchrocks Facebook.com/itchrocks itchrocks@gmail.com Thank you so much for listening.
