This week, we're scratching some names off our interview wish list for episode 150! Arejay Hale is best known as the drummer half of the brother/sister duo behind Halestorm, alongside his sister Lzzy. Taylor Carroll is best known as the drummer for Lit. Together, these dearest brothers are preparing to debut the first music under their new moniker KemikalFire. Their first single, "Dead and Gone," premieres Friday, April 14th. In preparation, the guys joined us to discuss the making of the single, their love for previous Itch guests Scott Stevens and Kevin Baldes, and PLUS, Taylor takes "supportive boyfriend" to a new level, and Arejay's alter ego Dr. Magnifiscent stops by to give The Itch tips on staying smelly!

And if that wasn't enough, stick around for a cameo from an important and oft-mentioned member of The Itch team!

UPDATE: Since this episode's release, KemikalFire's debut song (and video) "Dead and Gone" has been released, and it does not disappoint! Plus, their second ever live performance is May 3rd at The Basement East in Nashville! And The Itch just might be there...
