Josh Scogin (The Chariot, Norma Jean) and bandmate Michael McClellan are known to channel everything from the intensity of At The Drive-In to Jack White-like vocals to a setup similar to The Black Keys. Together they released Two Parts Viper via Cooking Vinyl on June 2nd, 2017 to mass critical acclaim from several outlets including Alternative Press, Exclaim!, Paste Magazine, and Rock Sound. The 10-track record is now available for purchase on all major music services including Amazon, iTunes, Spotify, here: https://68.lnk.to/tpv.
“…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.”

Additionally, the pair has been praised endlessly for their live performance including a shout out from Frank Iero (known for his work in My Chemical Romance) who caught them at their headlining show at Webster Hall, stating “This is the most important tour happening right now. If you love music and being inspired: do whatever it is you need to do in order to go see [‘68] play together. It will knock the wind out of your lungs and fill your soul with fire and awe.” The band is currently on a world with Listener, making major stops throughout Europe, Russia, and Australia.
