    1. Album Review : ’68 – In Humor And Sadness

      Posted on in Album Review

      For me, Josh Scogin is the renaissance man of today’s hardcore scene. He created the almighty Norma Jean and left. Depending on your tastes, you never forgave him for it, or you dug right in and embraced his next project, The Chariot. After releasing a few mediocre but totally improvised albums (seriously, their first two albums were recorded in one take), the final two records gave the band more of a mass appeal while breaking away from the initial cult following status. While in the frantic hardcore band, he released a solo alt-folk/country project A Rose, By Any Other Name, showing that yes, this screaming dragon can sing. After disbanding with The Chariot (which still shocks me), Scogin is back again fronting and manning the guitars of ’68, with former Becoming The Archetype drummer Mike McClellan behind the kit. The debut full-length In Humor And Sadness was produced by longtime friend Matt Goldman (The Devil Wears Prada, The Chariot, Underoath), and is due out July 8th.

      With this release, The Amity Affliction has made a name for themselves amongst the masses in the scene. While they did’t have a huge following of fans in the US, that quickly changed once they took the stage as part of The Alternative Press fall tour.
