Help us make "Itchin' Back" the Canadian Independent Rock Music Video of the year!
Released on March 22nd of this year, "Itchin' Back" is the second single and music video from our 2018 debut studio EP, I've Got Something To Say... and follows our debut video, "Bills To Pay" - which was previously nominated and named runner up rock video of 2018 by Dropout Entertainment. Once again, "Itchin' Back" saw One In The Chamber reunite with director Diego del Río, who also shot the video. "Itchin' Back" was produced by del Río, Kathleen Fobert, and One In The Chamber; and was edited by Fobert.
Musically, "Itchin' Back" has been compared to Queens Of The Stone Age, Velvet Revolver, Alice In Chains, and Pantera, among many others. As a staple to the band's live show and the closing track off I've Got Something To Say..., the track seamlessly blends their classic rock, ‘90s, and modern alternative rock influences.
The video explores the often internal conflict between chasing one's passion while balancing regular, conforming responsibilities. Its a juxtaposing collision that hits all aspiring musicians but, just like Bon Scott said, "It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock & roll". There is a dangerous sense of liberation in being an artist; it's a risk not all are willing to take.
