"Scratch releases Breakthrough"

Ottawa hard rock quartet Scratch is banking all its efforts on a new three-song demo called Breakthrough. ''We're hoping this is the demo that gets us noticed, '' says Josh Jacobson.

The members of Scratch walked into Pebble Studios with seven songs in November and spent weeks whittling it down to make three songs as perfect and hook-laden as possible. They had the CD mastered at Metalworks in Toronto.

Last year, Scratch opened for Three Days Grace at Junofest. The band also holds the honour of helping set the record for biggest beer sales on a Thursday night during the Navan Fair last summer. - Ottawa Citizen, April 29th, 2004

Feeling a bit camera shy


With the release of their latest video Time When (2005), the band Scratch has yet again proven that they are an original, edgy, groove-oriented hard rock band. From pounding guitar riffs on Breakthrough, to the emotional melodies of Time When and the rhythmic crunch of Fade Away, Scratch wanted to incorporate more pronounced melodies, and to benefit from the raw, pulse pounding energy they produce live.

"We want be known for writing great music!" says lead signer and guitarist Josh, "so that's why we don’t cut any corners."

The art of hard rock, as interpreted by Scratch, is expressed through honesty and progress. With this much anticipated follow up to Scratch's previous release, Never Been to Vegas, they are eager to show that they are mature enough to create memorable songs.

So what makes Scratch so unique, unlike many other stories of pre-fab glam and scripted rise-and-fall glories? It's quite simple actually… real hard rock from real people.
