ON TOUR WITH EVERY TIME I DIE & WAGE WAR
APRIL 28TH – MAY 20TH

US HEADLINING TOUR WITH LISTENER
KICKING OFF MAY 21ST 

“…closer in style, decibels and straight-up attitude to Nirvana’s legendary Bleach.”
– ALTERNATIVE PRESS

The latest two-man wrecking crew to get the blood flowing are the ‘68. Josh Scogin and Michael McClellan make music like they mean it. Combining hardcore with blues, it is the audio equivalent of a Boilermaker — a simple, refreshing slap in the face.” – CRAVE

“…essentially half Jack White, one-fourth The Black Keys and one-fourth The Chariot. Resulting in exactly what’d you expect – pretty much an uncontrollable urge to move about – ‘68 is proof that the dynamic duo cannot be tied down to anybody’s ‘genres’ or ‘expectations’.”  LIVE NATION’S BRING THE NOISE

Taking an equal mixture of rock, hardcore and blues, Scogin and McClellan fiercely come together to create the sonic blast of adrenaline many Chariot fans naturally expected, while still being able to give the new material its own unique dash of reality.”
– SUBSTREAM MAGAZINE

American rock duo ’68 is thrilled to share “The Workers Are Few,” a brand new track that premiered yesterday via AXS and is currently streaming, HERE. “The Workers Are Few” is the second single the band has unveiled off their forthcoming full-length album entitled Two Parts Viper.  The album debuts this summer on June 2, 2017 via Cooking Vinyl America. Additionally, fans can pre-order the record that instantly comes with both the newest track and their first single “This Life Is Old, New, Borrowed And Blue” (which premiered on Crave) via iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and more.

When asked about “The Workers Are Few,” vocalist/guitarist Josh Scogin said: This was one of the last songs I wrote for the album. Although the lyrics are very negative, this song makes me smile because it is unlike anything I have ever written before.  That’s always a good feeling.  It is very therapeutic.”

‘68 has been praised endlessly for their live performance. Beginning this Friday, fans can catch a glimpse of the irrepressible interplay between Scogin and McClellan. The duo will be hitting the road with longtime friends Every Time I Die and Wage War, making their first stop in Wilmington, DE and wrapping up in Lansing, MI on May 20th. Shortly after, the band will be headlining a US tour with Listener beginning May 21st in Garwood, NJ. This is only the first leg of a world tour extending throughout Europe, Russia, the UK, Australia, and Japan which will be announced later in the year. North American dates can be found below.

Having toured with the likes of Bring Me The Horizon, Every Time I Die, and The Fall Of Troy to name a few and hitting festivals such as Louder Than Life, Carolina Rebellion, AfterShock, and Welcome To Rockville – 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 America – 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.
