Itch Announces Debut Album 'The Deep End' Plus Tour With Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip Begins Jan 19th 2014

After an explosive 2013, punk MC iTCH announces the anticipated release of his debut album The Deep End. Following two EPs, a headline UK tour and two huge US tours, including a stint on the legendary Warped Tour, iTCH is finally ready to unleash his incredible debut on March 24th via Red Bull Records.
 
The Deep End includes the singles 'Best Shot', 'Homeless Romantic' feat. Taking Back Sunday's Adam Lazarra and the forthcoming single 'Life Is Poetry', released March 17th. Other guest vocalists lending their talents to the album include US artist Matisyahu and Less Than Jake's Roger Manganelli. An album of true originality, the pace and energy never lets up, creating a varied, sonic journey from a bona fide creative.
 
Of the album, iTCH says: "I'm beyond excited about being able to finally release my first solo album. I'm so proud of this record, I've taken the time to get it exactly how I want it to sound and have had the honour of working with some life time heroes. You can hear how much fun I had making this record and how creatively free I was allowed to be. This is without a doubt the best record I've ever released."
 
A truly impassioned and creative performer, the album has been a long time coming for the former frontman of political punk outfit The King Blues. Following the breakup of his former band, iTCH has forged his own career, focussing on his cutting lyrical style and passion for different musical styles to create a hybrid of hip-hop, punk, pop, electro and rock, all underpinned by iTCH's unique fire and attitude. Despite being stuck in a wheelchair for the whole summer of 2013 due to an injury sustained at a show, he managed to complete the Warped Tour in the US whilst continuing to write, create and collaborate - including a mixtape tape with Dan The Automator.
