Minus the Bear has a surprise coming for their fans on March 3rd. Introduced first by the group’s upcoming North American Spring tour announcement, Minus the Bear is using these gigs to showcase the best of their soon-to-be-released album, Voids.
Following their already remarkable 15 year-long run in the music business, MTB’s sixth album is set as a return-to-roots project. The album will mark resigning with their first label and gives way to a complete restructuring of the band. Shifting from popularity driven momentum to musical redefinition, the eclectically defined album is said to feature only the best of what Minus the Bear has to offer.
Produced by Sam Bell (Weezer, Bloc Party, Two Door Cinema Club, The Cribs), Voids‘ from-scratch sound begins a rebranding and rediscovering of Minus the Bear. With keyboardist Alex Rose’s growing role in vocals for several tracks on the LP and the helping hand of drummer Kiefer Matthais, Voids could possibly be the long awaited revival the band and label, Suicide Squeeze, have worked so hard for.
Seven days after Voids‘ March 3rd release on vinyl and cassette, Minus the Bear will begin their Voids tour (dates below). The two-month, 29 gig trist will feature both Beach Slang and Bayonne, though the opening band will depend entirely on the date. The VIP pre-sale, a bundle of both album and ticket, is available here.
