Minus The Bear New Album + Tour!
Progressive indie rock band Minus the Bear are set to release Lost Loves tomorrow, a sharp collection of rare tracks and unreleased gems.
Lost Loves is the follow up to Infinity Overhead, which reached #31 on the Billboard 200 as Minus The Bear's highest charting album to date. Over the years the band "has made a name for itself creating music as ear-catching as it is resonant with fans of guitar athletics and progressive structures," wrote Consequence of Sound, and Lost Loves more than delivers on that promise.
After listening all the way through, it's easy to forget that most of the material on Lost Loves, its easy to forget that this is a compilation of tracks from various eras of the band from Planet of Ice (2007) up to Infinity Overhead (2012). The quality of the tracks is consistently high level and there are no curveballs or wrong turns that often plague "best of" discs. Highlights include the unreleased "The Lucky One" which stands up to an single in the catalog and should become a fan favorite.
While Lost Loves isn't a definitive road map of The Bear's material, it's a great appetizer to the casual fan that may not be well acquainted with the band. Check out 'The Luck Ones" below.
The seasoned Seattle, WA five piece will embark upon a club tour this fall in support of the new release 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 Lost Loves live.
Minus the Bear will hit the Magic Stick with Young Widows on October 22. Grab you tickets here.
