’68 debut brand new video for the song ‘Track 1‘.
Directed by former Norma Jean / Underoath drummer Daniel Davison, the video takes a new approach to the standard warehouse vision in a way only Josh Scogin and ’68 knows how.
“Shooting this video with my long time friend and former band mate Daniel was a blast,” says Scogin.”He is one of the few artists that I feel comfortable with in just trusting his ability to make something great. He told me the idea and we just ran with it and it turned out golden.” The band just wrapped up a notable run with Listener in the states and are embarking on a batch of dates in Europe with InArchives capped by two shows in Russia with Touche Amore. The London date of the tour also features Baby Godzilla and Palm Reader as support.

’68 debuted at #1 on the Billboard New Artist Chart with the release of In Humor and Sadness in the US last month selling more than 3,000 copies in its first week of release.
The album demonstrates the loud beauty of alarming simplicity. A guy bashing his drums, another dude wielding a guitar like a percussive, blunt weapon while howling into a mic somehow manages to sound bigger and brasher than the computerized bombast of every six-piece metal band. A splash of roots, a soulful yearning for mid century Americana and the fiery passion of post punk ferocity rampages over a record of earnestly forceful tracks like a runaway locomotive.
