E56 Trouble's Coming: Royal Blood and the Evolving Sounds of Rock

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!

E54 A Conversation with Robb & Jason of Nonpoint (Part 1)

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.

The Funko Pop Prelude: We're Gonna Make Them Care

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.
