The 10-track record is now available for purchase on all major music services including Amazon, iTunes, Spotify.

If you love music and being inspired: do whatever it is you need to do in order to go see [‘68] play together.

“…Scogin and [McClellan] bring the noise in the most righteous ways, caring less about the scene they came up through, the bloodless drivel that passes as ‘indie’ and the boring earnestness currently permeating ‘punk’. Two Parts Viper is the best record of the year.”

“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

“You’ll find yourself a believer, especially after the live show experience.”

“…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

“Full of ten tracks that are so uniquely different from one another while still managing to fit together seamlessly, Two Parts Viper takes the listener on a thrilling musical excursion from start to finish.”  PASTE MAGAZINE
