Their gig at The Academy will be the biggest headline show to date for The Scratch.
Following a sold-out Button Factory gig, The Scratch have announced a headline show at The Academy. The punk-trad 4-piece will take the stage at the Dublin venue on April 10.
The Scratch are an acoustic act from Dublin, Ireland. Born from a shared love of acoustic guitar, metal and traditional Irish music, they 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, The Scratch have already built up a serious buzz in their hometown. A 2017 busking trip to the Rory Gallagher festival in Ballyshannon saw the band score their first viral video, racking up an astonishing one million views in just a week.
The Scratch capitalized on this attention and every Dublin headliner they have done to date has been sold out well in advance. This started with The Underground and continued in The Grand Social. Next came a raucous show at Whelan's. At Saturday, they played the Button Factory which sold out 3 months in advance. 2020 will see their biggest headliner to date in The Academy, with a rumoured debut album announcement to follow.
They've released an EP, The Whole Buzz, earlier this year, followed by their latest single, 'God Slap' in November. Check it out below:
Tickets for The Scratch at The Academy (priced €23) are available from today.
