Atlanta-based rock duo ‘68 has launched their new video directed by Bobby Bates for “The Workers Are Few,”, the second single released from their upcoming album “Two Parts Viper”, out June 2nd. Just a few weeks ago, the band dropped the single alongside news of their upcoming Australian tour this July. Pre-orders are available HERE and instantly come with both singles “The Workers Are Few” and “This Life Is Old, New, Borrowed And Blue”.
‘68 has been praised endlessly for their live performance. 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. This time around, Josh Scogin (The Chariot, Norma Jean) and bandmate, Michael McClellan have signed with a new label – Cooking Vinyl America – to launch their full-length album which channels everything from the intensity of At The Drive-In to Jack White-like vocals to a setup similar to The Black Keys.
When asked about the making of the video for “The Workers Are Few”, vocalist/guitarist Josh Scogin said:“This film noir, shadow influenced music video captures our performance with a bit of grittiness that we enjoy. We started out with a very loose direction leaving a lot of room for impulsive and candid shots that revealed themselves the day of.”
The two-piece will return to Australia in July for a string of intimate shows kicking off in Adelaide and making their way through Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney, Newcastle, and Brisbane. Tickets are on sale now.
