Massive news has come out from the rock duo ’68 as they have officially announced their latest studio album titled ‘Two Parts Viper’. The album will feature 10 tracks, it is said that this album is going to be “the pair’s strongest work to date”and it is due to come out this summer.
As well as the announcement of a new album they also announced that they are now signing with Cooking Vinyl, a labels who’s roster consists of artists such as The Dillinger Escape Plan, Giraffe Tongue Orchestra, Billy Bragg, and Teddy Thompson.
Vocalist and guitarist Josh Scogin had this to say when asked about the new album:
“This album is unlike anything I have ever written. Although it is only our 2nd full length I tried to make it sound more like our 3rd (or even 4th). Instead of just adding more blocks to the foundation of our debut, I tried to imagine that it was like 5 years down the road and just created something new (for me) from that.”
He also spoke about the signing with Cooking Vinyl:
“Having met with several different labels since our first album, Cooking Vinyl was always our first choice and thankfully they saw something in ’68 as well. We work really well together. As an artist, that feels really good to be able to say about your label.”
With all this news coming out it was also mentioned briefly in the official press statement that there will a UK tour happening later on this year.
Now we featured 68′ on our list of the most anticipated albums of 2017 which you can see here, and it is safe to say that with this news coming out of a new 68′ album and even a tour to say that we are excited about this would be an understatement.
