Minus the Bear to Drop New LP, ‘Acoustics II,’ in September

Minus the Bear

Seattle indie-rock icons Minus the Bear will release a new LP, Acoustics II, on September 10th. The album features MTB songs recorded in a stripped-down acoustic fashion, showcasing the songwriting at its barest and most intimate. The tracks span each of the band’s five albums, along with two new tracks, “Riddles” and “The Storm.”

The album — which was funded by a PledgeMusic campaign and recorded by longtime producer Matt Bayles in the spring — builds on the band’s previous acoustic set, the Acoustics EP. Though they’ve already eclipsed their financial goal, the PledgeMusic campaign is still active. Fans who purchase the album through the site will receive the music on September 3rd.

The band will also kick off a 39-city tour on September 8th with a performance at Sacramento’s Launch Festival. The tour will run through November 8th, culminating with a show in the band’s hometown of Seattle.
