American rock duo ’68 (featuring Josh Scogin ex-The Chariot/Norma Jean) will visit Australia next week to promote their recently released second album ‘Two Parts Viper‘ out now via Cooking Vinyl.

The 10-track record channels everything from the intensity of At The Drive-In to Jack White-like vocals to a setup similar to The Black Keys. It’s a compilation of what may be the pair’s strongest work to date – demonstrating more energy with a guitar and small drum set than some can with an entire live band.

Listen to the album now below. You can order a copy iTunes [Here] on CD [Here] or import Vinyl [Here].

LISTEN

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.

It was recently announced that Grenadiers will be joining the tour, now come the local openers for each show.

The intimate shows kick off in Adelaide and make their way through Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney, Newcastle, and Brisbane.

Tickets are on sale now for $30+bf.
