Atlanta-based rock duo ‘68 recently released their second alum ‘Two Parts Viper’ and to celebrate they’ll be hitting the UK for a one off headline show at The Old Blue Last in London on 20th June. Tickets available now. After they’ve laid waste to that venue, they’ll be taking their famed live show on the road across Europe, Russia and Australia. See below for details.

When asked about ‘Two Parts Viper,’ vocalist/guitarist Josh Scogin said: “’Two Parts Viper’ was written/recorded little bits at a time over about seven months while touring virtually nonstop in 2016. It is a journey that is meant to be heard as a full statement from track 1 to track 10. I can’t just name one thing about the record that makes me proud, it’s a whole package – the art, the music, the journey it took to get finished, the songs I deleted, the ones I kept, the struggles and the victories. It all had to happen just the way it did or this album would not exist the way it does.”

Having toured with the likes of Bring Me The Horizon, Every Time I Die, and The Fall Of Troy to name a few, the alt-rock veterans felt it was time to take a different approach to further define their brand. This time around, Josh Scogin (The Chariot, Norma Jean) and bandmate, Michael McClellan have signed with a new label – Cooking Vinyl – to launch their full-length album which channels everything from the intensity of At The Drive-In to Jack White-like vocals to a setup similar to The Black Keys.

If you have followed Josh Scogin’s prior bands, Norma Jean and The Chariot, you have seen things set on fire, death-defying jumps from the rafters and swinging guitars that could take your head off if you were too close. Scogin spent more time in and on top of the crowd than on stage during their wild shows. When ’68 became Scogin’s new mode of expression, one would think the chaos would die down. He might be too busy onstage to think about jumping around. The subversive element of ’68 became something more subtle… the attitude. There is clever repartee between Scogin and the audience, wild interplay between Scogin and his ’68 bandmate, Michael McClellan and music that will stun audiences across the board.
