Minus the Bear To Preview New Songs On Fall Tour
Having spent the last 4 months in Seattle's Avast! Recording Co and Electrokitty Recording studios, working on their highly anticipated fourth studio album, the band is looking forward to debuting their new material to fans in a live setting.
Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Joe Chiccarelli (My Morning Jacket, The White Stripes), Minus the Bear's new album will expand on their complex and exciting brand of rock n roll. "This album has more scope than the past records," says guitarist Dave Knudson, "some songs are more poppy and immediate while others expand on the complexities we're known for."
Minus The Bear ImageBefore the early 2010 album release, Minus the Bear will give fans a sneak peek at the Chiccarelli sessions by releasing the new album's first single "Into The Mirror," a song that not only shows the more expansive elements of the new record but is a song filled with keyboard-driven soul mixed with the immediate charm of pop music. Set for an October 27th release, the single will include b-side "Broken China" a perfect pairing of the band's indie / prog-rock influences.
"Into The Mirror" and "Broken China" will only be available as a special 7" and through digital music stores.
Tickets go on sale this Saturday, September 12th.
