UTG TV: Josh Scogin of ’68 Chats About ‘In Humor and Sadness’

'68  (D. SKANK PHOTOGRAPHY)

Josh Scogin believes in the human element of music, despite the fact that the world is now run by robots. He’s actually under the impression that rock and roll was meant to be performed by individuals with intuition. I think he’s out of his mind, but to each his own.

When The Chariot completed their farewell tour in 2013, it was an end of an era for Scogin. That being said, he was immediately ready to start the next chapter of his musical career. In fact, he was so gung-ho that he booked studio time before even knowing what his next steps would be.

’68, the brainchild of Scogin and drummer Michael McClellan, has been on a fast-track ever since. After crammed studio sessions of pizza, coffee, and experimentation, the band has already lined up their debut record In Humor And Sadness.

Check out below to see UTG TV‘s interview with Scogin where we discuss the transition between bands, the debut record, going on tour with Chiodos, and why he doesn’t like to spoon feed music lovers.
