“We wanted a Filipino band to work with us on creating a sticker pack for barkadas. Itchyworms fit the brand and the stickers they shared were exactly what we were looking for–something fun that friends will use. They embody the spirit of fun, cool and easy going,” Viber Philippines country manager Crystal Lee said.

The Itchyworms are equally happy to partner with Viber. “We're so proud to say that we are the first Pinoy band to get a Viber sticker pack, and it's really quite surreal. We're just so happy and excited to start using the #ItchyVibe stickers,” Itchyworms co-lead vocalist Jugs Jugueta shared.

The band was working on their new album, After All This Time, featuring a fictional character on the cover named Astronaut June Galvez, created by artist CJ De Silva-Ong. Their in-house artist Dan Panaligan then designed its cartoon version to be used in merchandise. “We bounced the idea to the Viber people and they liked our initial designs during the first meeting and the rest was history. The #ItchyVibe stickers show how the Itchyworms talk to each other.”
