Minus The Bear
 
 

Get Set For A New Minus the Bear Album and Tour + MP3

 

By: Christy Mannering
Those of you who’ve seen Minus the Bear in concert know how amazing the experience is, and I’m sure the news of their new tour has you extremely excited! The tour officially began in their hometown of Seattle on April 26th and some shows will include acts from Honorary Tile, Chin Up, Chin Up and POS. Indie-types will be hearing music from their newest album Planet of Ice which is scheduled to release on August 21, 2007. Hopefuls are wishing that Minus the Bear will hit the East Coast, but for now the tour will remain on the West Side and finish up in Quincy, Washington, on May 27th at the Sasquatch Music Festival.

The track “Dr. L’Ling” has been causing a stir after Suicide Squeeze Records offered it as a free MP3. Check out the download link below to hear the track for yourself.

“Dr. L’Ling” is nothing short of compelling. Clocking in at seven minutes, the single is hot from start to finish. Guitarist Dave Knudson proves that his talents are stronger and finer tuned than ever, and Planet of Ice is slightly more melodic than we’re used to hearing from Minus the Bear. However, this is an adjustment that can surely be appreciated and enjoyed. Headphones on, we’re ready!
