’68′s untitled new song comes split across two videos
Obligatory “we were very sad when The Chariot split up but we’re glad Josh Scogin is still making new music” statement (it’s true; it sucked), but JS was never going to go away, and although we’ve heard a few noises from his new project ’68 in the past, we’re now getting a concerted effort as the duo’s album is actually out in less than a month!
Called In Humor And Sadness, the album is ten tracks, named sequentially. We’ve had “TRACK ONE” as well as a 15-second Instagram exclusive “15isallyouneed” (potentially just a b-side?), but today the band have unleashed a new song – we’re not sure which, as it’s unnamed at current – in the form of a music video. No wait, there’s two videos. But they’re both crap. One just has Scogin shouting with his guitar in a room, and the other is just the drummer on his own in a room!
Oh, what’s that? You have to play them together and sync them up? Right! Let’s do that.
(To be honest, you’re better off clicking through to this YouTube doubler if you don’t want the hassle)
Scogin is joined in ’68 by former Becoming the Archetype drummer Michael McClellan, whose work so far has been solid if not particularly spectacular, but there’s only so much you can do as a duo I suppose. This song is actually pretty damn catchy, and we’re looking forward to seeing what comes from the whole album.
In Humor And Sadness is out on 8th July through eOne. ’68 will be touring this summer with Listener, who if you weren’t aware, include amongst their number Dan Smith, who did the spoken word breakaway in Long Live centrepiece track “David de la Hoz” and are super awesome and intense.
