Minus the Bear to release Lost Loves October 7th on Dangerbird Records

Minus The Bear will release their latest LP, Lost Loves, on October 7th via Dangerbird Records. The seasoned Seattle, WA five piece will embark upon a club tour this fall in support of the new album as well as the 10th anniversary re-release of their fan favorite EP, They Make Beer Commercials Like This. For a band that routinely sells out 1000+ cap venues across the country, the small rooms scheduled for the coming dates will provide an intimate setting for fans to experience the new album. Joining Minus The Bear on the road at various points are O’Brother, Young Widows, and Mansions, and on September 20th they perform at the Sunset Strip Music Festival’s main stage.

VIP Pre-Sale Tickets Available Today, July 28th at Noon ET (General On-Sale this Friday, August 1st).

The follow up to 2012’s Infinity Overhead, which reached #31 on the Billboard 200 as Minus The Bear’s highest charting album to date, Lost Loves lives up to its title quite literally as a collection of hard to let go songs pulled from the band’s past seven odd years of writing, recording and releasing records. “Inevitably some of your favorite songs are going to be cut in the necessity of creating the right sequence for that particular time,” says bassist Cory Murchy. “Regardless of the reason they weren’t included, it wasn’t for lack of love and appreciation of the songs themselves.” Somewhat by chance the black sheep that didn’t quite fit in with Planet of Ice, OMNI, and Infinity Overhead coalesce among their once regretfully forsaken peers. “Perhaps it’s because they didn’t make the past albums that they fit so seamlessly together,” muses Murchy.

Minus the Bear Premiere New Single, "Lonely Gun", Exclusively on RollingStone.com

Lonely Gun Premiere on RollingStone.com

Minus the Bear‘s new single “Lonely Gun” – from Infinity Overhead, out August 28 on Dangerbird Records – is now premiering exclusively on RollingStone.com!

“‘Lonely Gun’ came out of a deep depression,” singer/guitarist Jake Snider tells Rolling Stone. “I was thinking about how lonely an unused gun must be, its purpose unfulfilled, like a loveless relationship. The only way to allow its purpose is to hold it – to use it.”


You can click here to listen to the track on RollingStone.com, and afterwards make sure and connect with Minus the Bear’s Facebook and Twitter accounts and let them know what you think!

Minus the Bear Announce Spring Tour Dates & Festivals

Minus the Bear have announced new tour dates and three festival appearances to support their video & new single “Hold Me Down”. The second single from OMNI follows the band’s rock roots and elevates it into what might be their most arena ready single. “Hold Me Down” is a brood-to-a-soar rock gem of a song while OMNI’s first single “My Time” is more synth pop; the two songs combined capture the essence of Minus the Bear perfectly. Both are quite divergent in the rock spectrums and both are the distinct pop sound of Minus the Bear.

Tour Dates
03/24, Marquette, MI at Great Lakes Room
03/25, Grand Rapids, MI at The Intersection
03/26, Cleveland, OH at John Carroll University
