The Scratch is a 4-piece acoustic act from Ireland. Born from a shared love of acoustic guitar, metal and traditional Irish music, The Scratch have molded triumphant melodies with the groove and intensity of metal.
Started as a fun experiment in the kitchen of a house in Perrystown, Dublin. 2018 saw the release of their very first EP, ‘Old Songs’, a collection of older instrumental material followed by crowd favorite, ‘Flaker’. March 2019 sees the release of ‘The Whole Buzz’ EP with a marked development of their songwriting style. ‘The Whole Buzz’ further cements The Scratch as one of the best trad revival/metal crossover acts in the country and one of the most exciting acoustic acts in the world with high energy acoustic riffs and soaring melodies littered across the 5 tracks. To really understand the band, they have to be seen live in concert. This is where tey thrive and challenge anybody to come to a show and not leave with a smile on their face.
