The Itchyworms Says The End Is Here


Our Kuyas from The Itchyworms says their the end is here as they launch their highly-anticipated album under Sony Music Philippines, Waiting For The End To Start.


A few hours before the 9-track album drops on August 17 on digital platform worldwide, the iconic pop-rock band is set to debut the songs for the very first time through an online listening and live commentary party, which will be streamed via The Itchyworms' official Facebook page on Monday from 7:30pm onwards.


About the album

The Itchyworms’ upcoming studio album, Waiting For The End To Start was conceptualized and recorded with the members of the band confined in their respective homes during the nationwide lockdown.


Thematically, the songs are written as a reflection of their individual and collective experiences during the quarantine period. It also inhabits a more adventurous and relentless approach in terms of production and songwriting, which produced captivating end results that music fans will surely love.


As Chino Singson, the band’s lead guitarist and back-up vocalist, shares in a statement, “Like any collection of music, it is a record of its time: A snapshot of the artist's reaction to his or her circumstances. But it's a concept album in that our aim was to create art in the midst of a pandemic, to capture our emotions in the music we record, even with the limited recording gear we have at home. So you'll hear amp buzz and imperfect vocals, but for me that's part of the spirit of true rock.”

The Itchyworms’ “Waiting For The End To Start” virtual album launch is presented by Sony Music Philippines, GNN Entertainment, and Linya-Linya.
