Update (Dec. 10): The band appears to be called 68, and it looks like Josh Scogin is playing some guitar. He posted the following picture to Instagram:

In just over a week, former vocalist for The Chariot, Josh Scogin, will be launching his newest project.

He’s not making a ton known about it, but after tweeting out a website address that contains his personal Instagram and Twitter, it could be way more focused than his previous efforts. The domain name is owned by his wife, April, and the technical contact is for Velvet Press, Mrs. Scogin’s screenprinting company that, as you can see, was heavily involved with The Chariot.

The tweet was posted about 10 days after his last show with The Chariot.

So now let the question begin: Is it “’68”? “They are ’68”? Is it 1968? Whatever it is, Scogin rarely misses.


Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
